Is The Gig at Exit 33 The People’s Favorite Venue?

Only a week away, the Syracuse Area Music Awards are gearing up to be another amazing celebration honoring those musicians from the Central New York area.Sammy's 2016

Each year recipients in several categories are recognized for outstanding achievements in their genre and honored by a special category; The People’s Choice Awards. In addition to the Hall of Fame, Music Educator, and Lifetime Achievement Awards, people are allowed to vote for their favorite band, festival, and venue. Dwindled down to two choices in the final weeks, these finalists are put up for vote and announced at The SAMMY Awards.

This years People’s Favorite Venue includes a local that NYS Music covers frequently; the Turning Stone’s The Gig. The Gig is located at The Turning Stone’s Exit 33 venue, a venue that showcases all the local and region talent from right here in our very own backyard.  This venue is the perfect choice for the people choice awards as they reaffirm the concept of celebrating local music.

Bands that play at The Gig are treated to state of the art equipment, while patrons are treated to affordable drink specials, craft beers, and pub snacks including their very own New York pizzas.  Decorated in an urban rock style from the moment they enter, The Gig is a visual paradise for those both on and off the stage.

This affordable venue is the perfect choice for a night out with family friends or loved ones while celebrating rocking music.  Voting ends Sunday, so don’t hesitate to go to the SAMMY’S Peoples Choice Page and cast your vote for favorite venue, festival, and band.
