The musical diversity of the artists and bands that make up the 2018 SAMMIES Awards winners list is no surprise—our 26 categories reflect the broad range of contemporary popular music.
What is surprising—mind-blowing, really—is that Sacramento, at this moment, is producing so much high-quality music of so many kinds.
For 26 years now, SN&R has documented the local music scene as it has evolved and, for the most part, grown. The artists listed below are part of a proud Sacramento history.
Each link will take you to a page where you can learn about these local artists and hear their music.
To the winners: Congratulations. We know you worked hard to get here, and we’re glad you did.
