Introducing the 2015 RFT Music Awards Nominees



It's that time again! Each year, we present the RFT Music Awards, an annual celebration of the best and brightest musical acts St. Louis has to offer. The nominees are chosen by a panel of venue owners/employees, promoters/talent buyers, record store staff, dedicated diehards and other musical minds from organizations all over the city -- and then the winners are chosen by you, the readers.

Important: If you are one of this year's nominees, that means that you are invited to perform at the RFT Music Showcase, to be held this year in the Grove on June 20. Space is limited, so slots are first come, first serve. Fill out this form by May 11 to participate. See you there!

The polls will open for voting by the week of May 18, so check back to in two weeks. In the mean time, congratulations to all our nominees!
