Logan Awards Announce 2017 Winners

Sev­enth Annu­al Com­e­dy Music Awards Held at FuMPFeST in IL

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 win­ners for the sev­enth annu­al com­e­dy music awards. The award cer­e­mo­ny was held at FuMPFeST 2017, 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 were set­tled by the awards’ per­ma­nent Judge, the leg­endary radio DJ Dr. Demen­to. This year’s cer­e­mo­ny fea­tured live per­for­mances from a hand­ful of the acts nom­i­nat­ed, and only one of the win­ners was in atten­dance to accept their award (Boy Meets Robot, who accept­ed his award moments after per­form­ing his song acousti­cal­ly).
