Cammy Awards show jammed with music




BY LARRY NAGER
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The fourth annual Cammy Awards, set for March 12 at Electra, promises an eclectic offering of some of the best music the Tristate has to offer.

        Performing will be:

        • 1999 alternative rock band winner the Fairmount Girls.

        • 1998-99 hard-rock band winner Leap Skyward.

        • A special bluegrass jam by the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars and Kentucky 31.

        • Blues singer Keith Little with an all-star set of musicians from the Cammy-winning Shades of Blue album project.

        • The quirky original rock of the Ass Ponys.

        • A special set by guitarist Scotty Anderson and multiple Cammy winner Steve Schmidt's organ trio.

        • 15-year-old guitar whiz kid Ricky Veeneman, winner of the 1999 national Jimi Hendrix Family Foundation's guitar competition, under-17 division.

        • Comedy and music by Cammy host Blair Shannon.

        The Enquirer's Cincinnati Area Pop Music Awards present awards in 30 categories to Tristate musicians. And, in the Cammy tradition, we promise more music than speeches.

        The Cammys run 4-8 p.m.; tickets are $12.50, on sale date TBA. All proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Michael W. Bany Memorial Scholarship Fund.
