CityBeat has announced the nominees for the 2015 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards! This year, the organization did things a little differently allowing the public to weigh in on the nominees before deciding on the artists we will all be able to vote for. Remember, not everyone can be nominated. This is not a contest, just a way for us to pat each other on the back and celebrate local music. Voting will begin this Friday at noon. Here are your nominees:
The “Best New Bands” showcase will take place at Bogart's on Saturday, January 17 featuring performers up for the “New Artist of the Year” category (as well as other worthy newcomers).
The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards ceremony, featuring live performances and award presentations, returns to Covington’s Madison Theater on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015. Stay tuned for complete information on the Best New Bands showcase and the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards show/party.
