Music. Brotherhood. Community.
Wabash Entertainment was originally founded by Dustin Jackson as Wabash Music Company. After the addition of new members and company partnerships (which you can learn more about at the bottom of this page), and the expansion of our services into areas of more than just music, Wabash Music Company was officially rebranded as Wabash Entertainment. The Wabash name itself is derived from the Wabash Trace in an effort to support local history. Shenandoah was once a great music town, and we want to help bring that back. From the Everly Brothers, to Willie Leacox (Drummer for America), to Gary Kellgren (Founder of the Record Plant) and others, the musical roots of Shenandoah are deep.
Our goal is not only to help local musicians in general, but to give the youth in the community another outlet, a creative outlet, rather than sitting in front of a computer or tv screen all day. There are a lot of great homegrown musicians of all ages in Shenandoah, and in Southwest Iowa. We simply want to provide a platform to help them achieve their goals.
We want to do our part to help this community grow. As time progresses, so does our involvement in community matters. We also work with the City of Shenandoah providing our services to multiple community events. If you see us out and about at the next town event with a drone and some cameras, we are working hard so we please ask you wait to speak to us until the event is over. After the event you are more than welcome to come say “hi” and get to know us a little bit! If you are lucky, you might even make it into a promo video for the City of Shenandoah! (Another thing we ask: please do not stare or wave or point at the drone, act natural!)
This is just the beginning of our story, we have many chapters left to write. Come along and join us on this journey, and help us build and strengthen our community as we go!
A special thanks to Bill Hillman, because without him, none of this would be possible.
Epyk Adventures is an aerial drone footage company that specializes in drone photography and videography as well as other forms of photo and video editing. Wabash Entertainment has partnered with Epyk Adventures to offer these services. The company was founded by our own Corey Whitehill in early 2018 in Shenandoah, IA. Ever since the first drone took flight, his piloting and editing skills have excelled expectations and are always improving. Whether it be a commercial grade promotional video, a personal gathering, event, or music video, we have you covered!
The Iowa Rock ‘n Roll Music Association exists to preserve the legacy of rock ‘n roll music in Iowa by honoring achievements, educating youth, and inspiring artists. Established in 1997, they are a 501(c)(3) non-profit statewide organization with four service areas: Hall of Fame Recognition, Rock ‘n Roll Museum, Community Events, and Educational Outreach. Wabash Entertainment is now a Regional Consultant for all of Southwest Iowa. We have partnered with them to bring educational workshops, talent competitions, and more to our region. We are excited to see where this avenue will lead!
