All the Photos from the 2018 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards at Memorial Hall

On Nov. 25, the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards ceremony took place at Over-the-Rhine's Memorial Hall. The show was founded by CityBeat 21 years ago to pay tribute to the local music-makers who make Greater Cincinnati’s music scene so amazing. There were great performances by local artists and award presentation in 19 categories, but the overall theme of this year’s CEAs was once again all about appreciation for living in such a music-rich city. If there is any tradition of the CEA program itself it’s that — as we’ve written many times, the show is a veritable love fest. Foxy Shazam vocalist and masterful showman Eric Nally was the night’s surprise guest; the singer — who appeared on the cover of CityBeat’s recent Music Issue and talked to us about his forthcoming Full Moon recording project — debuted a new song to close the night out in style.
