Cincinnati Entertainment Awards Recap



They're the best, the brightest, the most deserving of recognition. They're this city's favorite acts, the musicians you nominated and voted for. And you can find them all, as you have for the last 20 years, at the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. In case you missed it, here's our recap.

The evening started off in the lower rooms of the newly renovated Memorial Hall, where you could find both famous and familiar faces, mingling with local celebrities from the stage and the screen. Both INHAILER and ICRC TV kicked off their broadcasts with red carpet interviews. 96 Rock's JD and Bridget hosted the main event and carried us through the night, which featured performances by The Hiders, Carriers, Lauren Eylise, Audley and Sylmar, Young Heirlooms, Moonbeau, This Pine Box, and the School of Rock Mason.
