LAS VEGAS — Each year, FRONT of HOUSE honors regional sound companies with our Hometown Hero awards. These awards honor the best small companies in six regions across North America: the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Northwest, Southwest and Canada. FRONT of HOUSE readers — the people who actually work with these companies — get to decide who’s really the best. We are looking for your ideas on the best regional sound production company in the U.S. and Canada. Let us know your faves (and, yes, you can nominate your own company).
Nominations are due by July 1, and regional finalists will be named shortly thereafter. Voting on the regional finalists will then take place, with regional winners determined by July 31.
The winners for each region automatically become the finalists for the 2016 Hometown Hero Sound Company of the Year Award, which will be presented at the Parnelli Awards Dinner scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 22 at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
