I'm confused

Postby All Change is Good » July 10th, 2014, 5:10pm

Can someone please explain who and what 'music awards' exist locally?

I just got a post from a band wanting to be nominated to the "All WNY Music Awards".

Is that different from others? What are the others?

Who runs these things?

We got nominated for a bunch of stuff. I have no idea how, or by who. We are up for best Folk band, and I've already seen a bunch of facebook "vote for me" things from different people in different categories. Two of our guys are nominated for best instrumentalists, which would be pretty cool if these awards weren't such a sham.

Minglewood is in the category with us......for best folk band. I hope they win. They are a great folk band with their electric guitars, half stacks, two drum kits, lighting rigs, and 138 effects pedals. Love those guys.


From the website:
http://www.allwnyradio.com/awards#

The top three winners in each category are selected by popular vote, in addition to several 'Judge's Picks.

....Judges picks eh. So like you can give awards out to your buddies top 40 cover bands as usual, then promote said award winners at your top 40 cover bars as usual. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Also from the website:
How to Nominate

Anyone can nominate anyone they wish for an award (yup, even yourself). Use our nomination form to provide us with the necessary information to consider your nominee.

Look at any one of the categories, looks like everyone in WNY is nominated. And yes, my band is nominated also however I personally think its a sham. My old band played progressive rock and we took third place for best 90's alt band a few years back.....go figure.

We got a message to our Facebook page that we were nominated for best folk band? Should have been for the band who drinks the most beer on stage. although we do play for 4-5 hours so I guess it works out.

This is why these aren't taken seriously...

From Facebook:

BIG UPDATE:

It has come to our attention that the facebook polls (which haven't caused us much problems previous years) are easily hackable this year thus the voting has become unfair & incorrect. We have been informed by multiple sources that an easy way has been found to vote as many times as you want.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we don't have any way to trace through the votes we have already received and see which are genuine & which are doubles. Thus, the decision has been made that we need to re-start the voting on a new voting platform which is not as easily hack-able.

:yikes:

I saw the the poll that was sent out post facebook fail. It was bad and I dont think many others knew about the polls, so...yeah, whatever this 'all wny thing' is, I'd say it's a wash.
