5th Annual Veer Music Awards Results

Cover January 2015

By Jeff Maisey

Veer Magazine presented its 5th annual music awards program recognizing the vast, diverse array of local bands and musicians on February 10 at the crowded Naro Expanded Cinema.

The awards were determined based upon what a band had accomplished in the previous year much as the recognition given at the Grammys. In an effort to make things fair and balanced, 50-percent of the vote was taken from an online poll and the other half of the tally taking into account the picks from local media, promoters and the like championing local music.

Among the memorable live performances receiving standing ovations were folk artist Skye Zentz and men’s vocal gospel quintet The Chose Few performing a medley of Zentz’s “The Tide” and the spiritual “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” Virginia Symphony cellist Jacob Fowler and pop-rock musician Nate Sacks paying tribute to David Bowie with an emotionally somber version of “Life on Mars,” and a reunited Snuff performing “Heaven.”
