Longfellow Street has been nominated for Best Americana Band of 2012 by Veer Magazine!
This is very exciting news for us – when I got to Norfolk last year, it was just in time to check out the winners of the previous year’s contest. Since then we’ve played shows and become friends with some of last year’s winners, and we’re pleased and proud to have a chance to be included in such a group of musicians.

We’re in category 12, “Best Americana”.
Our Suggested Other Nominees Of Note For Which To Vote:
Logan Vath – he’s in three (three!) categories – Best Emerging Artist, Best Acoustic/Folk and Best Busker.
Miles Hoyle – Best Busker. Miles gets my vote instead of Logan, ’cause I’ve stood there and enjoyed watching Miles play on Colley Ave, jammed a bit with him, put money in his accordian case… and while I agree that Logan is Best Acoustic/Folk and Best Emerging Artist, I ain’t nevah seen the boy busk.
The Russell Scarborough Trio – Best Jazz Band. RST! I should be at Cotton’s right now watching them and sipping mimosas…
Russell’s Music World – Best Music Store.
Seth Stainback – Best Blues, Best Live Performance, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year. Good Lord, Seth.
Crissy Babe & The Dastards – best rockabilly. I’m not sure I would call them rockabilly, exactly, but I guess it’s close enough!
The Victorian Tea Station – Best Open Mic. Vaughn Deel runs a fantastic open mic. Also, Mallory and I are getting married at the Tea Station. Mwaha.
I would include Nate Sacks and his band Reckless Passengers, ’cause they’re great – but they’re competing with us for Best Americana, soooo….
