This Los Angeles Music Awards has been a 18-year run dating back to 1991. Where it all began by Al Bowman, who was inspired by a conversatin he had with Bill Gazzarri, only just 3 days before his passing. Being known to wearing his trademark white Fedora hat, gave musicians their starting point. He then had given Bowman his hat, claiming his title as “Godson of Rock-n-Roll”, giving him his almighty blessing to go forth and become the voice of the independent music scene within the Los Angeles terrain.
Nine months has gone by and Bowman had kicked off his first annual Los Angeles Music Awards event, as a tribute to honor all of the local musicians and help them gain exposure for their recordings and various live performances. Some hot spots where this event was held, included: Whisky A-Go-Go, Roxy,House of Blues, Hollywood Palladium, Henry Fonda Music Box Theatre, Avalon, along with the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom.
The Los Angeles Music Awards has become the longest-running red carpeted event for independent musicians and filmmakers alike. Over these years there have been numerous imitators, but none in comparison to the original.
