Finalists Announced for the 2014 Music Managers Awards

Finalists Announced for the 2014 Music Managers Awards

The MMF New Zealand, Recorded Music New Zealand and the New Zealand Music Commission are proud to announce the finalists for the 2014 Music Managers Awards.

It is an event managers and other industry guests look forward to each year, and this year the MMF Music Managers Awards is to be held at The Tuning Fork in Auckland on Wednesday May 14.

New Zealand music managers today work tirelessly for the love of their band and are far more than a manager of affairs; they’re a booking agent, record company, travel agent, merchandise seller, driver, counselor and at times even a wardrobe assistant.

The MMF Music Managers Awards recognise the blood sweat and tears of those working frantically behind the scenes of New Zealand’s most popular acts.

So without further adieu finalists for the 2014 Music Managers Awards are;
