The NEMO Music Festival, taking place in Boston from September 28th to the 30th 2006, is dedicated to giving back to the music community of New England. Their goal is to provide education and opportunities to independent musicians, helping them to advance their careers and fulfill their dreams. They are involved in a number of charitable events that take place throughout the year to support this mission.
The mission of the Boston Music Awards, taking place on September 27th 2006, is to celebrate the wonderful music that is produced by artists with strong ties to the Boston-area. The event encompasses most genres of music, highlighting the diversity and the quality of the music from the area. A Board of Advisors consisting of community and music industry leaders assist in the creative direction of the event.
