OFFICIAL STATEMENT: 2011 DMV Music Awards Post-Event Statement
The DMV Music Awards Committee would like to thank everyone who supported the program this year in the efforts to unite various communities for a night of celebration and recognition. The committee is truly saddened by the unfortunate events that took place, and most importantly, we send prayers and apologies to those who were injured last night. This program was designed to be a positive effort on behalf of various people in the local entertainment industry who were planners, judges, power player voters, artists, and fans.
We also extend a deep apology to the Hyatt Crystal City for the events that took place. These acts, by no means, represent the positive nature of the “DMV” music scene as a whole. This community is comprised of thousands from Baltimore to northern Virginia who love to make music and support the artists who do so. It was in this spirit that the DMV Music Awards were created five years ago, and in this spirit, the “DMV” will continue to move forward in the efforts to share great work with the worldwide community of music fans.
Again, thank you to supporters, fans, sponsors, vendors, voters, judges, media and artists. With a theme of “Time to Build,” The 5th Annual DMV Music Awards received support this year from various people and companies in all genres and walks of life. We hope that your faith and appreciation for talent in this region does not waiver.
A complete list of award winners will be posted shortly.
