Rotosound endorsee and world class bassist Doug Wimbish is preparing for the annual Wimbash celebrations, to be held at Sully’s Pub & Tiki Bar in Hartford, CT on Saturday, August 18th. This year’s annual Hartford WimBash is set with a jam packed entire day of music and festivities.
The annual WimBash, as it was named in 2005, features Doug playing with a number of world-class collaborators, as well as select local bands, providing the opportunity to see musicians, who more often play large venues around the world, in a much more intimate setting. WimBash is unique in that it brings together an eclectic group of music genres under one roof, utilizing the local talent alongside well-known artists while working together with a local foundation or organization in giving back directly to the community. The event has established its name by leveraging the passion and talents of professional musicians by connecting them with groundbreaking programs in music, culture and quality education.
WimBash>>Hartford 2012 aims to promote community awareness and involvement in supporting Sully’s Pub and Lena’s First & Last Pizzeria Restaurant, which hosted the inaugural WimBash. Lena’s, in the community for 30 years and Sully’s for the last 16 years, face an uncertain future in light of financial difficulties and real estate tax difficulties. Continuing along with Doug’s support of education and belief in transcending music knowledge from the experienced to the youth, the WimBash>>Hartford 2012 musicians will offer clinics and workshops to the School of Rock participants and local children during the day. Working together with the musicians, production, marketing and media WimBash team, the School of Rock youth will enhance their skills in the many aspects of music and event production as they participate in the production of WimBash>>Hartford 2012.
In its ninth year, WimBash is growing in popularity and attracting more and more talented musicians to the NovaSound family. Doug and his production company, NovaSound Studio, have brought the WimBash Music Festival Series on the road while keeping the vision of WimBash as a community and family based, organic, relaxed and educational event. WimBash has redefined how we look at pro-active involvement in making change.
