Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. Sponsors Spring Harp Fest for the Sixth Year

Local San Diego plumber will play at 16th Annual music festival supporting music in education

 March 31, 2015 San Diego, Calif. –In addition to their corporate sponsorship of organizations such as the American Heart Association and the Burn Institute, Bill Howe Plumbing is proud to sponsor local community events, sports teams and military programs initiated by their own employees.  One example of an employee led program is the Annual Spring Harp Fest held in La Mesa, Ca. The San Diego plumbing company has had a long relationship with the event organizers together with their field supervisor, an accomplished musician and plumber.

This year’s Spring Harp Fest is the sixteenth annual celebration of re-establishing music in education. The end goal of the music event is to bring harmonicas and students together to enhance music appreciation. Spring Harp Fest was founded in 1999, and draws some of Southern California’s most prominent blues harmonica players. The all day event is 100 percent free to the public, and funded through charitable contributions from the local community, donations from attendees, raffles at the event and local business support. In past years, local restaurants like Hooters and HoDads have donated food for purchase and families are encouraged to come all together to enjoy a quality and fun, music-filled time.

Bill Howe became involved with Spring Harp Fest six years ago because their senior field supervisor, Tom Safreed, is a harmonica student that has been playing at the event for several years and advocates for the organizations. Tom even helped to form the Bill Howe Blues Band, a group of musically inclined technicians, which has performed at many company parties and other local music venues. Tom celebrated his 15th anniversary with Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. in 2015 and is a skilled San Diego plumber as well as accomplished musician. He is passionate about the art of the blues and harmonica players and is proud to help bring that passion to local residents and a new generation of fans.

At this year’s Spring Harp Fest, Tom Safreed, who won last year’s Harp Contest, will lead the music festival kicking off at 12 PM. Featured guests he is excited to share the stage with include: Billy Watson, Zach Cole, Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Big Jon Atkinson and many more. In Addition to this great event the San Diego plumbing company has promoted many individual plumbers and their families’ events surrounding music and the arts. In June 2012, Bill Howe Plumbing generously hosted a “Reggae to the Rescue” event at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach to raise money for one of their own, Doug Powell’s son, Andy. The benefit helped to raise enough money for Andy’s life saving kidney transplant. Doug celebrated his 20th anniversary as a San Diego plumber with Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc.

“We built our company with a mission to take care of our employees and give back to our local community,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are proud to be a part of this great event that supports music education and our own employee. We hope to see everyone at this year’s festival.”

The 2015 Spring Harp Fest will be held from 11-6 at Harry Griffen Park in La Mesa on Saturday April 4. It is open to the public, free with a suggested $10 donation and families can even bring their leashed dogs.

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
