Sacramento Sammies 2017 Cheat Sheet

Sacramento Sammies 2017 Cheat Sheet

  |   Music   |   No comment

I try to hire local musicians to produce music for all of my Sacramento and Northern California video productions.

The local flavor brings the visuals together every time and I just really enjoy working with and getting to know some of the amazing musical talent in the City of Trees.

I find most artists through word of mouth or by going to shows but when I first moved to Sacramento my buddy Jeremiah Mayhew told me to search in the archives of SN&R Sammie Awards. Down the rabbit hole and into the Sactown music scene we go.

The 2017 SN&R Sammies nominations just came out with a great new batch of musical wormholes. Listen to everyone to vote with an informed eardrum.
