On Saturday Night, Crooked Eye Tommy received a 2015 Ventura County Music Award for Best Blues Band.
It was a magnificent evening. So many musicians from all genres in attendance. Dozens of live performances in an amazing setting…
There are far too many people to thank for putting on such a monumental event but i must take a moment and thank Tim Amoroso. Tim is an unrelenting supporter of Ventura County Music. He pours so much energy into this event each year… literally dozens of events were planned and executed in the lead up to the Awards Ceremony. It’s a labor of love and the scope of what he does is really hard to fathom. It is a team building excersize on a mammoth scale, devised and designed to build up and promote the Ventura County Music Scene and produced for all of the musicians who play in this beautiful place we all call home.
NO ONE in the 805 puts on a more inclusive Local Music Event than The Ventura County Music Awards. The love was everywhere Saturday night and I am proud to have been a small part of this epic event.
Support Local Music is a term that is thrown around alot by a great number of people… Saturday Night (and all the dozens of shows leading up to the VCMA show) is one of the very best representations of this I have seen since moving here 6 years ago..
Coming together to salute local music in all its forms… Raw and Natural… Angry and dark… Smooth and Beautiful… Rough and free form… and all points in between..
Thank You Tim and The Red Light District Show No Cover Magazine.. and all the great sponsors… Well Done!!!!
