Fifteen years ago, the first Cincinnati
Entertainment Awards ceremony was held at the long-defunct
Over-the-Rhine nightclub Sycamore Gardens. The mission of the CEAs was
intact from the start — spotlight Greater Cincinnati’s original music
scene, engage our readers via public voting for nominees and put
together a fun shindig/ceremony that people will talk about until ...
Mission accomplished. Fifteen years later, we’re still honoring the best of the local music scene and delivering a ceremony that has become a “must-attend” event for music lovers, thanks to high-quality live performances (this year from Wussy, Two Headed Dog and Pomegranates, among others) and the general merriment (or, if you’re lucky, debauchery) that ensues when you get hundreds of musicians and hardcore local music fans in the same room together.
The 15th annual CEAs take over Covington's Madison Theater Sunday. Go here to for event details, ticket information and more.
