The Syracuse Area Music Awards or SAMMYS People's Choice Award voting kicks off online today. Fans are encouraged to vote once a day every day for their favorite musicians and venues. Each Wednesday the list gets a bit smaller as the finalists from the previous week are announced. Continue to vote for the next round of finalists and support your favorites daily. I believe that you can vote from your different email addresses each day as well.
The People’s Choice Winners will be announced at the SAMMY Awards Show held on Friday, March 7, 2014, 7pm @ the Palace Theatre on 2384 James Street in Syracuse, NY. Since 2007, the SAMMYS have attracted thousands of voters through its online voting system. http://syracuseareamusic.com/peopleschoice/index.html
