Last night at a music industry only event, THE AGE MUSIC VICTORIA GENRE AWARDS were announced at The Age Media Centre, in the beating heart of Melbourne Rock Central. Wagons ripped up the stage with Henry Wagons setting the fun mood for the evening. Tek Tek Emsemble performed their quirky rhythms for the assembled crowd.
Here is a video of the Wagons in action.
“Not many states in the world have such a depth of talent in so many different genres to even justify a Genre Awards” stated Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan.
“Awards play an important role by recognising artistic achievements and giving a leg up to the most deserving acts, while acting as a filter for fans seeking out the best new music.”
The Age Shortlist Editor, Martin Boulton said, "'Too Much Water in the Boat' by Charles Jenkins is an album I've been enjoying all year, it represents all those things that make the local music scene so exciting and, like our other genre award winners, deserves to be celebrated".
