Who was Wendy Hull?
Wendy, Des Moines, was a kind soul who loved music and supported the local music scene vigorously. Her love and support for musicians are incomparable to anything.
For a city’s music scene to thrive it must be embraced by members of the community, and few fans have helped champion the scene in Des Moines better than Wendy Hull.
Wendy has had a deep love for music her whole life, began attending live shows in Des Moines in August 2010, and hasn’t stopped since.
She has attended over 900 live shows since 2012 (when she began keeping track), and her passion fueled her to start Wednesday’s Notes, a blog dedicated to keeping readers informed about local music.
She is also a member of Historic Valley Junction’s Music in the Junction Committee. Wendy’s dedication to supporting, promoting, and advocating for Des Moines bands, their shows and tireless efforts to make our music scene great have earned her Fan of the Year Award(2015)
She left her mark in such a great uplifting and special way. May peace be with her family, with her friends, and with the music scene she loved so much.
