Well, it's that time again, folks! Each year, we at RFT Music HQ present the RFT Music Awards, an annual celebration of the best and brightest musical acts St. Louis has to offer. The nominees are chosen by a crack team of industry insiders, dedicated die-hards and various other musical minds from organizations all over the city -- and then the winners are chosen by you, the readers!
Many of these fine musicians will appear at the RFT Music Showcase, to be held this year on June 1. Important: If you are one of this year's nominees, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the best e-mail address and phone number at which to reach you this week in order to be sure you are included in our coverage.
So let's get to it! The polls will open for voting later this week, possibly as early as tomorrow, so keep checking back. Congratulations to all our nominees.
*Notes: You won't see the Union Electric on this list, due to one of its members being inducted into the Hall of Fame. No slight intended to that great band. You will see Tef Poe, who writes for RFT Music, but his inclusion is purely subjective.
