Steamtown Music Awards
Established in 2014, after nearly 6 years of planning, the Steamtown Music Awards honor the musicians and music professionals that call North Eastern Pennsylvania home. The awards serve a dual purpose and also act as the opening ceremony for the Electric City Music Conference. The event fosters a “friendly competition” environment with it’s true purpose being to serve as a networking event. For one night out of the year, country music, hip hop, rock, metal and everything in between can be found under one roof.
The event begins with a red carpet entrance, where nominees are interviewed and photographed in similar fashion to the national level award shows. Performances that span various genres and styles taking place through out the night. Awards are given out and in true rock-n-roll nature generous amounts of libations and food are enjoyed by all.
A yearly “Lifetime Achievement Award” is also presented with local music legends such as Brett Alexander and Alan Stout receiving the honor.
The Steamtown Awards were established to honor local musicians in NEPA. Any current band, performer, or solo artist in the area is eligible for an award. We are constantly improving and updating our process.
