I recently traveled to Cleveland, OH for the 2nd annual APMAs! Full of amazing bands, and lots of SJC love!!
The evening started with a stroll down the red carpet, punk rock cleans up real nice....hi Brendan!
The show opened with All Time Low playing a medley of Joan Jett, The Clash, Green Day, Blink 182, and Jimmy Eat World songs, followed by their own classic “Somethings Gotta Give”
SJC's Justin Nace and our friends PVRIS played a killer version of "My House" with our buddy Tyler Carter of the band ISSUES - watch them kill it here.
PVRIS was presented with the award for Breakthrough Artist Of The Year
SJC’s longtime bud Alex Shelnutt and the dudes of A Day To Remember brought home the award for Best Live Band, which if you’ve seen them, comes as no surprise.
Not only was SJC's Cyrus Bolooki up for drummer of the year; but him and the boys from New Found Glory teamed up with Haley Williams of Paramore for an awesome new version of "Vicious Love"
Speaking of drummer of the year... Congratulations to our good friend and long-time SJC Family member Rian Dawson, who was voted AP Drummer Of The Year for 2015! Congrats Rian!
Matt Nichols and his band Bring Me The Horizon won the award for Video Of The Year
To cap off a HUGE year for the band ISSUES, Josh Manuel and the boys won the award for Artist Of The Year! It’s awesome to see such a hard working band get that kind of recognition!
Congratulations to all the artist that were nominated and won awards this year, you all deserve it! This year was a killer year for new music and the competition was definitely close!
It's been an absolute honor to have the artist playing SJC on the APMA's. Not only are they all great drummers; but they are even better people. Thank you for watching!
