|Let's talk about an awards show!|
No, it is a great way to add cohesion and a true sense of community to the local or regional music scene; to help raise the "quality" bar; to educate artists and fans alike on what's going on in the whole music community, not just one little segment of it.
And so....it seems to me it's time for not just Lexington, but the state of KY to step it up. Sure, there is the KY Music Hall of Fame and other similar genre-specific orgamizations, but what about something more comprehensive for the entire music community?
Let's do this thing.
|Julia & Sydney in TN winning awards.|
I have already done a lot of the footwork. From getting quotes for the cost for prizes to what categories are good to get this off the ground, to methods of voting to potential venues....and on and on.
What we need now if for an organization to pick this up and run with it.
So, who wants to lend a hand and make this a reality?
EDIT: December up-date....we've done this thing. Well, we've leaped into the fire with it, anyway. As I write, the tentative date is Feb 22, 2015 for the show...and nominations are happening NOW.
