Via notreble.com: The annual WesFest concert and scholarship event, held in honor of bassist Wes Wehmiller. This is the seventh year for the event, following Wehmiller’s passing in 2005. The event is organized by Wehmiller’s friends and fellow Berklee alum, including Kira Small and bassist Bryan Beller, and is designed to be both a celebration of the bassist, as well as raising funds for a Berklee scholarship in his name. The last six events have raised $90,000 for the scholarships, awarded to musicians continuing their studies at Berklee “who best exemplifies the excellence and grace Wes showed as a bassist and as a human being.”
Also performing were:
• The Casualties of Jazz: a jazz organ trio that exclusively plays Black Sabbath tunes, featuring keyboardist Matt Rohde, bassist Chris Golden and drummer Jimmy Paxson
• Danny Mo and the Exciters: featuring 2011 Wes Wehmiller Scholarship Award Winner Hayley Jane Batt and legendary drummer John “JR” Robinson
• The WesFest All-Stars: featuring music by Mike Keneally, Jackie Daum, Joe Brooks, Kira Small and Colin Keenan
