Last night Basin Street Records was awarded the OffBEAT Best of the Beat Business Awards for Best Record Label and Music Business of the Year!
From the Rebirth Brass Band’s Grammy win for their Rebirth of New Orleans CD, to Theresa Andersson’s ride in Muses and 50 shows in Sweden and her Street Parade CD, to Irvin Mayfield & the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra’s first trip to Carnegie Hall, to Kermit Ruffins, his new speakeasy and his EP The Other Side, to Dr.Michael White’s fine new release Adventures in New Orleans Jazz Pt.2, to Jeremy Davenport’s 150+ shows, to Rebirth’s opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to Dr.Michael White and Jason Marsalis ringing in 2013 on CNN, it was a great year.
Thanks to Jan and Joseph and staff at OffBEAT, the hard work and talent of our artists, and their families, managers, agents and lawyers. Thanks to our staff and families, the producers, engineers, studios, photographers, graphic designers, production coordinators, distributors, and publicists. Thanks to the media, talent buyers, festivals, and clubs. Thanks to those who buy or license our artists’ music, and the retailers who sell it. Here’s to an even finer 2013!
