Hoboken Music Awards 2012
Organizers purposely delayed the handing out of awards this year in order to raise money to help musicians in need following Hurricane Sandy. Their originally scheduled night of ceremony and fun at Maxwell’s was turned onto a fundraiser which we called The Hobey Fund. They raised over $1600 and  are very proud of the Hoboken community!

It is thus now time to celebrate the great music makers of Hoboken. So come out on Saturday December 15 at 8pm to Northern Soul (557 1st Street) as they announce the winners and present the proceeds from their fundraiser.

The 2011 Hoboken Music Awards at Maxwell’s November 12, 2011

This year, the Hoboken Music Awards moves to a larger venue. The third-annual HMAs will take place on Saturday, November 12th 2011 at Hoboken’s legendary Maxwell’s at 1039 Washington Street in Hoboken, NJ. It will be a celebration of local talent in Hoboken, a party, and a great night of music with friends, peers and awards.

For the previous two years, The HMAs celebrated the Hoboken local music scene at smaller venues around town. In 2009, The Goldhawk was home for the HMAs. It was such great success that the show needed more space. So in 2010, the HMAs moved to Northern Soul. Even though that was a larger space, it was so crowded that organizers Dave Entwistle and Stephen Bailey decided to hold this year’s show at an even larger venue.

Maxwell’s, Hoboken’s most famous rock club, not only provides more space for the audience and nominees but a larger stage for performers and award presentations as well. And for the fans, Maxwell’s also offers great food, drinks, nearby validated parking and all ages welcome.

The Hoboken Music Awards were started three years ago by Dave Entwistle, the long-time host of The Peoples Open Mic, a weekly showcase for local artists in Hoboken. The concept of the awards continues to be to honor those artists and the people who help promote the music scene in and around the Hoboken area. For the second year local writer, musician and cafe owner Stephen Bailey will act as co-host at this year’s event.

The categories are: Outstanding Male Solo, Outstanding Female Solo, Outstanding Band, Outstanding Scene Contributor, Outstanding EP/Album and the newly added Outstanding Video. Once again there is a People’s Choice Award where the public gets to nominate any artist or band they choose.
