The 7th Annual Orange County Music Awards, which will be held on March 29, 2008 at The Grove of Anaheim, gives emerging artists a voice in the local "OC" Music scene. The OCMAs promote local musicians and showcase the mass musical talent of all genres found in the community. Don't be fooled by imitations, the OCMAs rock!

Performers at this year’s awards show will feature a few winners from last year as well as new performers. Over 25 awards will be handed out to winners representing everything from "Best Pop Rock" to "Best Jazz".

The OCMAs also like to recognize businesses and supporters of Orange County music by inviting them to participate in the event. The awards show is about bringing people together to celebrate the diversity of music found right in their own backyard.

Celebrate and keep the local music scene thriving! A portion of the OCMA event ticket sales will help benefit "Right to Rock", an organization supporting music programs in schools.

The nominees for the Best Live Artist/Band (electric) and the Best Live Artist/Band (acoustic) will compete through a series of showcase finals in Southern California. All performances are conducted before an experienced panel of judges, in the music community.
