AWARD SHOW DETAILS
During the show, we will announce our annual award winners by genre, our Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement award recipients, as well as the People's Choice vote winners. Be sure to attend to check out the new event and to participate in the local music scene.
The Syracuse New Times Syracuse Area Music Awards Show is our annual celebration of the Syracuse music scene. Much credit should be given to Frank Malfitano, who now runs the Syracuse Jazz Fest, for founding the Sammys in 1993.
Each year, hundreds of local musicians and valuable members of the Syracuse music community attend the show to cheer on their friends.
Since the first Sammys was held at the Landmark Theater in 1994, the Sammys Award Show has become the number one local music event in the Central New York Area.
Fans of the Sammys should check out the music community events listed below.
