And the 2019 Nominees Are…

Don’t get too excited (because I’m not), but here are the nominees for Beachcomber Music Awards Chapter 11 (so called because it’s the 11th one, although our accounting department would beg to differ).

All kidding aside, I’m very happy to share this year’s finalists, some of whom are long overdue for recognition. The final nominees were determined by a poll of “insiders”—musicians, venue owners, journalists and various stalkers and trolls. There are three final nominees in each category, with an unavoidable tie (four nominees) for Hall of Fame.


We’ve narrowed it down to 38 categories this year, due to a lack of nominees in certain fields. We hope to bring some of them back next year if enough of you raise a stink.


The big event will be held Monday, Aug. 26, at Al’s Beach Club & Burger Bar on Okaloosa Island. Any businesses or individuals with disposable income that are interested in sponsoring an award, please email me at


Anyway, congrats to the following and good luck!
