Over 325 people filled the Genevieve Ballroom at Lumber Barons in Bay City on the evening of April 12th to honor top musicians in 60 categories of Rock, Country, Jazz, Blues & Miscellaneous divisions of the 29th Annual Review Music Awards Ceremony. Over 6000 votes were cast by music fans over a 3 month period from January through March of this year, with 948 musicians nominated throughout the Great Lakes Bay region.

Big winners of this memorable celebration were Country/Rock artists’  Mandi Layne & the Lost Highway and the Rock-Hlp powerhouse Redburn, who walked away with six and eight trophies in major divisions respectively. 

The evening also featured exceptionally breathtaking and powerful performances (click links for pictures of performances) by Donny Brown & the Van Dell Tones, The Robertson Brothers Band, Redburn, Avenue 5, The Distorted Waltz, along with admirable performances by Brody & the Busch Road Trio, who’s drummer was hospitalized days before the ceremony after suffering a car accident, along with Bob Hausler, James Nelson & Kelsey Hathaway, who opened the ceremony with a pleasant set of Americana music following the break-up of the Ramblers one week earlier.

A complete listing of the nominees & winners in all divisions is listed below; and look for a photo gallery of the evening along with interviews with top winners in our special Review Music Awards edition that will be published on April 30th.

    Congratulations to all the winners. So many of our deserving local artists go unnoticed, while many are so deserving of recognition. I am suprised at the lack of mention of an act winning eight times, as it was so discussed last time. It really shows the arrogance of the area and the outsider mentality. We all should be proud of whomever wins, because it showcases the area's talent as a whole, instead of crying over who did or did not get more of their friends to vote for them, whether we feel deserved or not. Personally, I did not vote for this year's big winner as I do not follow that music style and have no interest in it. That does not mean I should disgrace myself by trashing them for it. We all need to take a long hard look in the mirror.
