  • The Tentacles is a rock group made up of four Ashland High School students with a love of music and for each other.
    "It helps to just be close with your band-mates and go to school together and to see each other every day," says 16-year-old vocalist Lily Baugh. She is joined by 17-year-old guitarist and vocalist Julian Jones, 16-year-old drummer Rhi Ahimsa and 14-year-old bassist Kelly Gibson.
    The Tentacles won Ashland High School's battle of the bands competition in April. Since then, the four have been writing original songs, which they have recorded with Bob DiChiro at The Grove, and are looking for Ashland gigs.
    "We just kind of recently got everyone that we want in the band, and just started writing since the beginning of the year," Jones says.
    Many of their competitors at the battle of the bands had been playing together for longer than a year, so The Tentacles was honored to be selected as the standout.
    "We went second out of six bands and we pretty much rocked it," Jones says.
    "We had some slight moshing going on," Ahimsa adds.
