David McLean here - local guitarist & guitar instructor...and creator of the Lexington Music Awards. We're presenting the 2nd Annual Lexington Music Awards show on Sunday, January 31 at the historic Lyric Theatre!
The awards, unlike other awards shows across the country, don't just honor musicians, but the entire music community....with categories for best live venue, best DJ, best music store....best song, best vocalist....plus specialty categories like "community music award" and "lifetime achievement award" (over 30 categories in all).
As many of you recall from the first show, this event was to be hosted at a small venue here in Lexington with the assumption the first year we'd be lucky to put 50-75 people in the room, but that we'd demonstrate we could build a viable program and grow it from there.
The project quickly grew out of control (haha!), and we nearly sold out the Lyric Theatre back in February amid all that snow!
We're about to launch the nominations ballot, and official nominees should be announced by late November or early December.
I'd love to chat with you further about this event! Please feel free to contact me at this email address or call/text me at 859-420-2007.
Also, feel free to check in at the FB page or look at our blog. The new web-site will be on-line soon!
