The Excellence In Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards Will Be Staged on Thursday February 4, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel

2

The prestigious Excellence In Music and Entertainment (EME)  Awards is back and this year’s staging of the event will be  on Thursday February 4, at the Gardens at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, 81 Knutsford Boulevard, Kingston. The EME Awards is the brain child of popular radio personality Richard ‘Richie B’ Burgess. He created this award show to honor the players in the local music industry, both past and present, for their hard work in creating and maintaining excellence within our rich musical culture. The EME Awards is a non-profit venture.

Since its humble beginnings back in  2005, as a small in studio production, the Excellence In Music  and Entertainment (EME) Awards has grown to become one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the local entertainment calendar , due primarily,to its high production standards. The EME  Awards has  garnered unwavering support and popularity through the years and has attracted coverage from both the local and international media. Last year, the presence of America’s  BETJ Channel, provided quite a fillip for the EMEs and their repeat airings of the event has  definitely added to the excitement both here and abroad.  Over 85% of the awardees were in attendance for both the 2008 and 2009  staging and the organizers hope to improve on that this year. This is a clear indication of the respect the industry has for this event. 2010 promises to be even bigger and better.
