The stage is set for this year’s WMRC Local Music Awards! On May 22nd hundreds of musicians, fans and local music supporters will gather at Liz’s Diamond Bar and Grille in Hopedale to honor, celebrate and relish all that The Greater Milford Area Local Music Scene offers.
The doors open at 4:00pm with entertainment by JC Fusion. The official award ceremony starts at 5:00pm featuring a red carpet introduction of nominees, 10 live performances and 27 award presentations.
“This makes five years of celebrating local music in the Greater Milford Area, I couldn’t be more excited” said event organizer, Ray Auger of WMRC in Milford. “As much as this night is for the musicians it’s just important to the fans of the local music scene and music in general. There’s so much talent here in our own backyard and I want to share it with everyone! And we make one hell of a night of this party! Everyone, 21 plus, is invited to attend and enjoy a night of local music at its best… and it’s FREE!”
This event is designed to look and feel as if it would be a night at the Grammy Awards. No detail is missed. There will be red carpet, VIP Lounge, SWAG, interviews, multi-camera coverage from Milford TV, must-see-fashion, laminated VIP passes for those lucky enough to be granted access to the VIP Lounge, live performances and coveted trophies handed out throughout the night included the Stanley Cup of local music honors, The Headliner Award. The WMRC LMAs were designed to honor the arts in style.
“The focus on local music from WMRC has been amazing, says local musician, and multiple nominee for his band Bad Men, Tom Pile. “The WMRC Local Music Award event is a spectacular celebration of what the local artists have accomplished over the past year, voted on by their fans and peers. Every year seems to get better and better.”
