2011 Hoboken Music Awards
3rd Annual Hoboken Music Awards: Maxwell’s – Nov. 12th
On November 12, 2011, the Third Annual Hoboken Music Awards is upgrading to their biggest venue yet: the famous Maxwell’s at 11th & Washington.
“The Hoboken Music Awards were started in 2009 by Dave Entwistle. Entwistle is the long-time host of the Peoples Open Mic, a weekly showcase for local artists in town. The concept of the awards was to honor those artists and the people who help promote the music scene in and around the Hoboken area. The inaugural event, held at the defunct Goldhawk (now The Turtle Club), was a huge success. 2010′s HMAs nearly burst the walls of Northern Soul. This year’s event, planned with the help of local writer Stephen Bailey, is happy to call Maxwell’s its home.”
The nominating process has been streamlined to give more support for artists who regularly play in Hoboken. The categories are:
- Outstanding Male Solo
- Outstanding Female Solo
- Outstanding Band
- Outstanding Scene Contributor
- Outstanding Recording
- Outstanding Video
- Peoples Choice Award where the public gets to nominate artists
The event starts at 8:30pm on 11/12 – and the cover is $8.00.
