What is the WMSE Guitar Smasher Club?

The most generous members are the WMSE Guitar Smasher members.  The generosity of WMSE’s Guitar Smasher members makes a huge impact.  Their support makes many unique opportunities like Matching Challenge Grants during Membership Drives, special events, and new initiatives possible.  They empower WMSE to champion local music and a diverse mix of artists by donating more than $40/mo. (or $480+ annually).
