The South Bay Music Awards LLC was founded in 2003, the brainchild of executive producer Ken Andrews. Ken is well known in the South Bay music community, assisting and campaigning for many local artists during his tenure with the SBMA. Throughout the event's history, the SBMA has honored both local musicians as well as music industry legends and in doing so has created a platform for the best upcoming bands and artists.  

Past honorees of the SBMA include such renowned artists as Gary Wright, Brenda Holloway, Davie Allan (Davie Allan and the Arrows), Chas West (Bonham), Neil Turbin (Anthrax), Mitch Perry (Whitesnake), Brandy Moss-Scott, and Jesse Damon (Silent Rage / Electric Caravan).

This year's event will once again be held on December 6th, 2014. We will bee celebrating our "10th Anniversary Gala" with a line-up of renowned and memorable performers. Billy Vera  ("At This Moment") will be on hand to receive his much deserved Lifetime Achievement Award.  Please join us as we celebrate and honor the musical best of the best.
