About The WimBash Music Festival Series:
Synonymous with Doug Wimbish, Doug’s personal venture, WimBash, continues to be both a vision and mission. WimBash, as a community and family based, musical and educational festival has redefined how we look at pro-active involvement in making change. 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 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.
It is Doug’s strong personal belief to share the knowledge and gifts bestowed on him and other musicians, passing the passion, history, culture, integrity and soul of music on to future generations. Recognizing the power that music creates and instills for a child – strengthening self confidence, responsibility, listening skills, creativity, cognition, social development and personal growth – Doug has used his forty plus years experience in the music industry to connect musicians of all ages, skill levels and cultures together in a collective, interactive and fun environment.Posted by
