Best Music Poll 2013

By PHOENIX STAFF  |  December 12, 2013



We hope the Fogcutters are still riding high on the wild success of their third annual Big Band Syndrome event at the State Theater, at which some of Maine’s biggest musical names (including several BMP winners) performed with the 19-piece big band comprised of a whopping 13 horns, five-piece rhythm section, and two arresting vocalists. Inspired by and rooted in the tradition of big band jazz, the Fogcutters elevate the live-music experience, infusing their shows with energy, panache, and passion for many musical styles. As well-loved jazz musicians have done for more than a century, the Fogcutters, through their notes and rhythms, invite the audience not only to listen, but to feel. |

Runners-up for Best Jazz Act: Portland Jazz Orchestra, Standard Issue, Mark Tipton F

Runners up for Best Live Act: Kenya Hall Band, North of Nashville, Too Late the Hero
