Sin City Presents Magazine to Host 1st Annual Shredder of The Year Awards
Winners Will Be Revealed on December 19th at Count's Vamp'd Rock Bar & Grill in Las Vegas, Nevada
By: Sin City Presents Magazine
The initial nominees for the award were determined by the magazine's publisher and included the 36 Las Vegas based guitarists that had been previously featured as a 'Sin City Shredder" the local magazine dubbing the list its "Shredder Hall of Fame".
The public was invited to cast their votes online for their favorite nominees on September 15, 2018, voting for the award concluded on November 15th, 2018. The fan choice winners will be announced at the event on December 19, 2018.
"The monthly recurring Sin City Shredder feature has become a fan and artist favorite since it's addition in February of 2015. I'm often asked how we choose who to feature. Sometimes it's just a gut feeling and sometimes it's based on the recommendation of an artist's peers. For me a shredder isn't just someone that can rip a thousand notes in sixty seconds it's a guitarist that has the tenacity, talent and balls enough to get up there and bare their soul to the audience. We find these artists, on the stages and in the studios of Las Vegas, each with a different story and journey. For our inaugural event we wanted to celebrate all the guitarists we have already featured.", Genie Forkner, Creator, Editor, and Publisher, Sin City Presents Magazine.
The event will be hosted by the John Zito Electric Jam at the infamous Count's Vamp'd Rock Bar & Grill and will include LIVE performances by special guests and several of the nominated guitarists.
Sponsors for the event include Sam Ash Music, Svanlund Design, AV Vegas, The Hideout Recording Studio among a myriad of Las Vegas based entertainment and event industry brands. A complete list of sponsors and nominees can be found at www.sincitypresents.com
