Wheelhouse - News

Open Menu ☰

Wheelhouse posts most of our band news and performance announcements on our Facebook page. You can also use Facebook to message the band.

Wheelhouse has a new website which is device friendly. On the website we have added specific pages for Event and Wedding Planners, as well as information for Booking Agents.

Plus we have a new page for our Community Neighbor to Neighbor Concerts; an exciting way of bringing neighbors together and building communities.

Going forward, we will be using our website as a static band information source. In otherwords, individuals, corporations, charity organizations, and municipalities can get information about Wheelhouse, discover the resources we have to offer, gather event ideas, and learn how to do business with us.

Performance postings and dynamic communications will flow over to Facebook because we have found that most of our fan interaction occurs on our Facebook page. And it is easier to maintain an event calendar, and reach out to friends on social media.

Year 2018

2018 was the year Wheelhouse really started to kick things in high gear. Wheelhouse retained the services of Ricana Media in Fresno to develop a new Electronic Press Kit (EPK). Video production got underway, and the band recorded song segments at Wolff Studio.

A 15 second teaser is available by clicking here. The full production should be completed by Fall 2019.

Year 2017

One of our goals as a band was to have the ability to create events for our California Central Valley communities without necessarily depending upon third party venues or providers. The idea was (and still is) to deliver great entertainment at reasonable or little cost to community benefit organizations and activity leagues.

To make that goal a reality, Wheelhouse purchased its own 60,000 watt large format stadium sound system (through Audioworks in Fresno), along with truss and various lighting fixtures.

We also hired local qualified community college students from the music department to engineer our sound and light boards.

The acquisiton of the large scale entertainment equipment required additional stage hands, roadcases, and large rental trucks for transportation. Because the band members are still largely involved with the setup and breakdown of equipment, we show our college students how the electronics and compters work so they get experience (and pay), and hopefully enables them to develop opportunities with other bands and sound companies.

Through our website, you can learn more about the band, look over our song repertoire, check-out places we've been, and see what is needed for your event. Just click the Open Menu here or at the top of the page.

Most of all, we are very easy to communicate with and can provide tips to help you make your event memorable, and/or profitable. We also have a available.

You can view video and additional pictures of the band on our Facebook page. To stay in the information loop, be sure to click "LIKE" one the band Facebook page.
