The Capital Area Music Awards – trying out the new nickname “the Cammys” – are no more.
After an inaugural celebration at Trick Shot Billiards & Sports Pub in Clifton Park in November of 2013 (back when they were nicknamed the Jammys), the second annual event was scheduled to take place at The Linda in Albany at 5pm on Sunday, January 25.
“We’re working hard to present a night of musical community,” the event’s organizer Dan Coler said on the Cammys’ website.
But on Wednesday night (December 17) – two days after the nominees had been scheduled to be announced – Greg Gamache, another of the Cammys’ organizers, posted the following on the event’s Facebook page:
Due to a lack of support from our music community, it is with a heavy heart that we announce this years 2014 Capital Area Music Awards, scheduled for January 25, 2015, has been cancelled. We truly appreciate the support of so many people in the development stage. It is our sincere hope that someday we may join together for a night of musical community and unite as one!
