Boston Music Awards 2001

Date: April 19, 2001
Venue: Orpheum Theatre, Boston

The Boston Music Awards are all about community. It’s the only time all year that tribes from rock, hip-hop, funk, folk, and jazz get together under one roof and coexist peacefully. “It’s been an unbelievable night for us, but what it really makes me feel is that I’m proud to be a Bostonian,” — Godsmack singer Sully Erna.
