Jack Awards Born
The Annandale Hotel in Sydney last month was the home for the launch of ‘The Inaugural Jack Awards.' Conceived by the Peer Group Media along with Jack Daniel's, the Awards will reward all areas of Australian live music. From bands to venues, from tour poster artwork to rock star photography: Australia’s favourites will be recognised and rewarded. It will also be the first major national awards for live music voted for 100% by the Australian public. Topping the nominations tally are You Am I with six nominations including: Best Live Band, Best Male Performer (Tim Rogers), Best Lead Guitarist (Davey Lane), Best Bass Guitarist (Andy Kent), Best Drummer (Russell Hopkinson) and Best Tour Art (Whiskey Eggs & Bacon). Renowned for their powerful performances, Magic Dirt land five nominations: Best Live Band, Best Female Performer (Adalita), Best Bass Guitarist (Dean Turner), Best Drummer (Adam Robertson) and Best Tour Art (Tough Love). Although the exact date and venue is yet to be confirmed for the Awards ceremony which will be held in May, their website www.thejackawards.com is up and running where you can go and cast your vote now.
