San Diego Plumber Supporting San Diego Music Education at Spring Harp Fest 2014!

Have you got the April blues?

Our own Tom Safreed, expert San Diego plumber and harmonica enthusiast has the cure. Spring Harp Fest 2014! Tom has been part of the Bill Howe team for over 15 years. Although his area of expertise is in plumbing, his passion is music and he has been a part of the blues music scene in San Diego for many years. Part of his involvement has been to help bring music, specifically blues harmonica playing, to San Diego schools through his affiliation, and with the help of Bill Howe sponsorship, of Spring Harp Fest.

Tom Safreed, San Diego plumber, takes time between playing to jam with 2013 Spring Harp Fest attendee!

Founded in 1999, Spring Harp Fest promotes the “American art form [of] the blues harmonica.” For 15 years, players have been coming together in San Diego to perform, entertain and raise money for “Blues in the Schools” program, which is part of Blues Lovers United of San Diego, a non-profit organization. Bill Howe Plumbing and Tom Safreed have been proud sponsors for the past five years and hope you can join us on Saturday April 19 from 11-6PM.

The music festival is 100 percent free, although there is a suggested donation of $10, which is well worth the investment. Festival attendees will see Patrick “Blue Frog” Ellis, Dan “Dirty” Rice, Bubba McCoy, “Harmonica John” Frazer , Eric Von Herzen, from Social Distortion, with the Atomic Road Kings and many more, including our own Tom Safreed. Proceeds go to the music education program and the day is funded through 100 percent donations and volunteers!

If you’re feeling a little peckish during the event, don’t worry, Hooters’ Wings and Hodad’s burgers will be available. It is a family friendly event you don’t want to miss! So, if you want a cure for the blues, head to Harry Griffen Park in La Mesa for a free & fun family event benefitting music education.

2014 Spring Harp Fest begins at 11AM and will be entertaining the community throughout the day until 6PM at Harry Griffen Park, located at 9550 Milden Street in La Mesa, CA 91942. Join us for the whole day, or just stop by to hear our own Tom Safreed during the Unknown Player’s Jam at 1PM.

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.
