Music students at High School in the Community (HSC) in New Haven, Conn., have a couple of reasons to smile in 2019. First, there are now plenty of new Peavey® instruments and amplifiers in the band room, and second, the instruments were delivered in person by Doug Wimbish, Connecticut native and renowned bassist of the GRAMMY® Award-winning band Living Colour.
During his visit to HSC, Wimbish shared tales of his musical journey, which began by discovering a mandolin in a neighbor’s trash can. His school music program became a saving grace where he could play quality instruments and establish his identity as a real musician. “I’m here because I was thankful enough to have music in school,” Wimbish told students, according to a report by The New Haven Register.
Now Wimbish, with the help of Peavey is paying it forward by donating roughly $13,000 worth of Peavey brand equipment, including acoustic guitars, electric guitars, basses, bass amps
For more than 50 years, Peavey has done its part to “spark” musicians’ creativity, through innovative instruments, amplifiers, speakers and pro-audio equipment.
