ZoneMusicReporter will once again host the ZMR Music Awards Live in New Orleans, LA at the Joy Theater on May 17th, 2014.
The Joy Theater is a renovated movie
palace that was converted into a state-of-the-art concert venue and
has been booked to hold the ZMR Music Awards Concert. This year's awards mark the 10th anniversary of the ZMR (formerly NAR) Music Awards.
We cannot overstate our excitement. Last year's event was a great success and turned into quite a 3 day celebration. The industry attendance was outstanding.
We had attendees from all across America, Canada, Germany and Finland.
Check out last year's event at our ZMR Award Show Facebook page. It will be the perfect weekend to celebrate, not just this year's Award
Nominees, but also the genre that we represent as a whole.
We are glad to welcome back Renee Blanche, host of "Night Tides" on KCUR-FM in Kansas City, as emcee of the show.
The line-up of performers is outstanding and covers most of the musical styles that ZMR represents.
These artists have generously donated their time, talent and effort to make this show a night to remember. All of the proceeds will be used to cover the
cost of the show, and the remaining funds will be used to seed next year's award show. In addition, we would like to thank the generous sponsor donations we
received from many of the artists that believe in this endeavor. Without your initial support, this show would not be possible. However, our work is
not complete. The next effort is to fill all of the 650 seats in The Joy Theater.
ZMR will again host a Meet and Greet at The Vacherie in the heart of the French Quarter. This was a not to be missed event last year.
It was a great night for meeting old friends and making new ones in the atmosphere of an old world French Quarter setting.
The event will be catered and according to our food critic, Mr. Billl Binkelman, the food was second to none. The Meet and Greet will be held on Friday May 16th. Hope to see you there!
The 10th ZMR Music Awards concert promises to be a magical evening! Looking forward to seeing our old friends from last year and meeting those who plan on attending this year. See you there!
