2013 – Chicago
The Saturday night before the 2013 WEFTEC in Chicago the first official event occurred. Musicians, friends, family, sponsors, WEFTEC attendees and WEF SYPC filled the room to the 120 person capacity. Musicians also donated to the charity to secure a stage spot – and the rights to perform and produce their bucket-list music before an enthusiastic audience. Some songs were solo; others were truly a jam session with a full stage. “In addition to supporting water charities, the garage band sensation excited both young and old WEF professionals alike. It was WEF meets Woodstock in a very positive groove” said Dave Kinnear.
2012 – Los Angeles
Musicians inevitably find other like-minds and talents with which to play. In today’s world – apps and websites more frequently bring musicians together; so does WEF. WEF Members networking about water quality expanded their focus in 2011 to enjoy a side helping of musical fellowship and charity fundraising. That first year, dozen WEFTEC attendee musicians gathered at Diego Rosso’s studio in Los Angeles. That early “word of mouth” session conceived the popular and fast-growing water industry related musical collaboration and charity event: Jammin’4 Water.
