Someone asked about this earlier today...so, sure, why the hell not? Let's announce the lineup for our Tuesday, July 22, awards show ceremony at the Granada Theater right now!
Well, OK, how about after the jump? Yeah? Cool.
LET'S DO THIS!
The Special One-Night-Only Supergroup! Best Instrumentalist nominees Chris Holt, Eric Neal, Ryan Thomas Becker, Chris Mayes, Joseph Butcher and Sean Kirkpatrick performing as one cohesive unit for one night only, presenting their own renditions and interpretations of the five Best Song nominees.
Your Emcees and Live Remix Specialists! The Cannabinoids, who, throughout the course of the evening, will perform live hip-hop remixes to some of the biggest hits ever produced by area artists.
The Presenters! - Dean and Jasmine from The Jagger Morning Show on Live 105.3 - Noted regional comedian Dave Little (perhaps with special guests) - Legendary cowboy actor/regional spokesman Burton Gilliam - And more!
...and there you have it. --Pete Freedman
