WesFest 6 – We Need Your Help To Hit Our Fundraising Goal
Tuesday, February 15th, 2011
If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know what this is about. If not, click here to learn about WesFest.
Now that you’re up to speed, here’s what’s up: We’re in the home stretch of the WesFest 6 concert event and fundraising drive, and we’re behind in hitting our goal for the year: $21K. I wrote a BellerBytes e-mail about it that I hope you’ll read by clicking right here.
Thank you for whatever you can do to help us help deserving bass students at Berklee College Of Music, and also honor Wes Wehmiller in the process.
And if you’re anywhere near Los Angeles, you simply can’t miss this show. Bass fans, Pino Palladino is a groove and tone monster, and he’s almost *never* doing his own thing and stretching out like he will be with his fusion band PSP (also featuring Simon Phillips and Philippe Saisse). All the cool kidz will be there. And, also, me.
Here’s a snazzy flyer to dazzle you into coming.
It’s a truly worthy cause. Help us out and you’ll feel good about it. Promise.
