OCMA 2006, April 8 at The Grove of Anaheim. Tickets now available at the box office or by Ticketmaster

We just wanted to thank everyone for supporting the OCMAs and we hope you enjoyed the show as we work hard all year to give musicians an opportunity to get some exposure.

Congratulations to all the winning bands, nominees and performers for representing Orange County. It certainly isn’t about whether you take home an award; it’s about taking the next step of your musical careers. It’s a chance to promote yourselves, make new connections and use our resources to get a good paying gig the next time you’re trying to book your band at a venue. We are just a springboard to the next level!

Thanks again to our numerous sponsors who helped us with the production of the show. We could not sustain a show of this level without your generous dollars and support. If you liked what you experienced at our show this year, we certainly encourage you to join us again next year!

The Orange County Music Awards is proud to present its fifth annual music awards show that gives emerging artists a voice in the local “OC” music scene. The OCMAs were the first to help promote local musicians and to showcase the mass musical talent found in the community. Don’t be fooled by any other imitations, the OCMAs rock!

Much like the Grammy’s the OCMAs are designed to showcase and award talent found in all musical genres. Performances at the awards show will feature a few winners from last year’s categories. Over 25 awards will be handed out to winners representing everything from “Best Pop Rock” to “Best Jazz.”

The OCMAs also like to recognize businesses and supporters of Orange County music by inviting them to participate in the event. The awards show is about bringing people and community together to celebrate the diversity of music found right in our own back yard.

Come help us celebrate and keep our local music scene thriving! A portion of the OCMA event ticket sales will help benefit “Right to Rock” — supporting school music programs.
