How Much Recognition Is Enough?

3 Comments · Wednesday, May 12, 2010
The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards (CEAs) were established by CityBeat in 1996, using theater critics from all the local media to determine nominees. The Acclaim Awards were created in 2006 and are largely supported by The Cincinnati Enquirer. Our theater scene is excellent for a city this size, but it’s worth asking if competing awards enhance what we have or duplicate recognition.  

Heroes of the Zeroes

Fifty reasons why real music fans were lucky to live in Cincinnati in the ’00s

3 Comments · Wednesday, December 23, 2009
As we approach the beginning of a new decade, I decided to try to think of 100 reasons why I've enjoyed covering Cincinnati music over the past 3,650 days. At first I was worried I might not be able to come up with enough. A couple of hours into an "off the top of my head" list, I considered changing it to 1,000 reasons. After some hard editing choices, I've managed to squeeze the decade down into 50 items.  

Wade to Go

Wade Baker's submersion into the local Jazz scene (and beyond) has made him a key part of it

Wade Baker recently nabbed his first CEA nomination in the Jazz category, but he's a pervasive presence throughout Cincinnati's music scene. In addition to playing trumpet with a rotating cast of Jazz luminaries in the Wade Baker Jazz Collaboration, he's toured with Hip Hop/Jazz/Jam locals Eclipse, provided bass for Blues cat Jon Justice for the past three years and has a regular gig with the veteran Blue Birds Big Band. And that's just a partial list.

Locals Seabird spent 2008 riding high on their debut for EMI/Credential, 'Til We See the Shore,' promoting it on the road and in network TV shows and even scoring the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for "Artists of the Year." They close out another good year with a release party for their new album, 'Rocks Into Rivers.'

People sure do love The Seedy Seeds. The endearing Folktronica trio cleaned up at this year's Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, claiming three trophies: Album of the Year, Best Live Act and Best Alternative/Indie. The relatively young group now has six CEAs to its name. They're performing at the Southgate House with tourmates The Young Republic and D.C.'s Vandaveer.  

A Little Bit Louder Now

Loudmouth puts the party in Punk and nabs a CEA nod

After a year of existence, Loudmouth experienced the gamut of local band emotions in a fairly compressed time frame. For starters, Loudmouth would never have existed if former Now Entering Rehab guitarist/vocalist Mike Ulanski had opted for a Florida teaching job.
