Last month The Grammys Award Show was fun to watch. Sure the televised part only awarded a few awards and the performances took center stage. However, awards were presented to national and international artists in several genres. The award becomes a highlight of the musician's career.

What about the talented musicians in the greater Washington area, do they get awards? Do our hometown heroes who entertain us at the local clubs, bars, schools, theaters and house parties have a night to call their own and to recognize each other for their talents? The answer is yes they do have a special night and it is called The Wammies.

This year is the 28th Annual Washington Area Music Awards and it takes place Sunday at one of the area's leading music venues The State Theatre in Falls Church, Virginia. Tickets for the general public can be purchased for $35 here.

Nominations include Deanna Bogart, Billy Thompson, Tommy Lepson, The Nighthawks, Tom Principato, Daryl Davis, The Morrison Brothers Band, and Paul Pfau who are known throughout the area and beyond. Groups that could be considered institutions have been nominated including The National Philharmonic, The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Choral Arts Society of Washington and The Washington Chorus. New artists, bluegrass, blues, country, classic, world, reggae, pop, classical, electronic, modern, folk, and children musicians will be recognized.

Come out and support Washington's local music scene as they celebrate the area's best musical talent. Doors open at 7:30 PM and the show starts at 8 PM on Sunday, February 16, 2014.
