The East Coast Music Hall of Fame Awards Gala (our second annual) will once again be the crown jewel of our year’s activities. However, after overwhelming feedback to expand activities and opportunities to interact with each other and with the artists, we have added several events beginning the night before the Gala and continuing until the morning after. Since so many people are looking forward to the Gala, we have worked tirelessly with Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City to keep the auditorium style seating the same price as 2019. These rows of seating begin just adjacent to (next to and behind) the honoree seating. In 2020, we have added 2 features which our fans repeatedly requested – the opportunity to enjoy this event as a traditional Gala – with a luxe meal prior at 6 PM, seated at round tables, front and center. These tickets are referred to as Gala Seating and Premium Gala Seating (which is extremely limited). The other seating options are all “auditorium-style” for the event beginning at 8 PM as you would usually enjoy any concert event. There is no “bad” seat in the house, but there are options here for the budget-conscious and for the most discerning guest alike.

Artists confirmed to appear: Dionne Warwick, The Tymes, Manhattan Transfer, Bobby Rydell, Larry Chance, Vito Picone, Lou Christie and more.

Artists confirmed to perform: Gloria Gaynor, Tony Orlando, Jay & the Americans, Tavares, Jay Siegel, The Duprees and many more to be announced.

The event will once again be hosted by Emil Stucchio.

All events are available individually, so you can pick and choose and pay for only the events which interest you, but we’ve also made available packages that bundle (and discount) Tuesday night events, Wednesday night events, or all of the events (each with some VIP perks) for the most devoted fans.


The events (new additions for 2020):

Wednesday 11:00 PM – ECMHoF Official After-Party

Last year, a benevolent local businessman invited a select few of his artist friends and family to an after-party and before we knew it, dozens of people were being turned away at the door. We were determined, in 2020, to create an official event – sanctioned and hosted by us – that would feature live entertainment, some light late-night food offerings and libations – and for everyone to have the opportunity to attend.

Tickets are $50.

Thursday 9:00 AM – ECMHoF Farewell Breakfast

A sumptuous breakfast buffet awaits you, including All-American rise-and-shine starters, coffee, tea and more! It's one final chance to say goodbye to new friends and old until we all meet again. Your East Coast Music Hall of Fame leadership team will be on hand to hear from you – what you enjoyed the most and what you'd like to see in future events. Many of the artists will be stopping by for one final connection with their fans as well. A great way to cap a fun-filled East Coast Music love fest!

Tickets are $30 (includes breakfast).
