Cammy tickets go on sale Monday




By Larry Nager

        Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday for the 2001 Cammy Awards, set for March 11.

        The big change this year for the Enquirer Cincinnati Area Pop Music Awards is a move to a larger venue, Jillian's Warehouse in Covington.

        But the format remains the same. Comedian/singer Blair Shannon returns for his third year as master of ceremonies, and the 4 p.m. show will offer as much live local music as possible.

        This year's acts include:

        • Noah Hunt & the 420 All Stars, the new local band featuring members of Uncle Six and the lead singer for the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band.

        • Original pop-rock band the Simpletons.

        • Cammy-winning singer/songwriter Tracy Walker.

        • The country-rocking Dallas Moore Band, the big winner at the 2000 Cammys for best CD, songwriter, country vocalist, country instrumentalist (guitarist Chuck Morpurgo) and country band.

        • The innovative jazz/rap group Iswhat!?

        Additional performers, including lifetime achievement award winners, will be announced in coming weeks.

        Tickets are $12.50 in advance, $15 day of show, at Ticketmaster outlets, by phone (562-4949) and online (www.ticketmaster.com). All ticket proceeds go to the Michael W. Bany Memorial Scholarship fund, which aids the area's needy music students.
