Logan Awards Announce 2017 Nominees

Seventh Annual Comedy Music Awards To Take Place at FuMPFeST in June

For Immediate Release – Today, The Logan Whitehurst Memorial Awards for Excellence in Comedy Music, aka The Logan Awards, in association with The Funny Music Project, aka The FuMP, announces the finalists for the seventh annual comedy music awards. The award ceremony will be held at FuMPFeST, at the Holiday Inn Chicago in Elk Grove Village, IL the weekend of June 16-18.

The Logan Awards are held every year to showcase the very best in comedy music, presented in three categories: Outstanding Original Comedy Song, Outstanding Parody Song, and Outstanding Comedy Music Video. Each year, the awards committee is run by a new chairperson, who selects two groups of jurors (three currently active comedy musicians and three from comedy music fandom) to select the finalists from the list of open nominees suggested by fans of comedy music. This year, Byron Lee of DementiaRadio.org was the chairperson, and he selected three fan jurors and three comedy musician jurors to help select the finalists. As with every year, however, any ties would be settled by the awards’ permanent Judge, the legendary radio DJ Dr. Demento.

Here are the nominees for this year’s awards:

Outstanding Original Comedy Song:

Outstanding Parody Song:

Outstanding Comedy Music Video:

The nominees will be featured on the Dr Demento Show, set to hit his website for streaming on May 27th at www.drdemento.com.

2017 Nominations Open!

Nominations for the 2017 Logan Awards are now open! Sign up on the new nomination page to nominate outstanding original comedy songs, parody songs, and comedy music videos released in 2016. Open Nominations close on April 1st (April Fools Day) to give time for the jurors to make their decision and the robot cats to be herded and engraved in time for the awards ceremony FuMPFest 2017.

There’s no advantage to nominating the same song more than once in the same category (though you can nominate the same song in the video category as well as one of the other categories if you think it is worthy to win in both categories) so please check whether the song you’d like to nominate has already been nominated. Only songs or videos that were released in 2016 are eligible to be nominated; you can usually figure out when a song was released by looking at a video upload date, album release date, or the date a song was released on The FuMP, for example. If there’s one you think deserves to win but you’re not sure if it’s eligible, nominate it anyway and a decision will be made.
