See you June 6 and 7, 2022.

The great news is good things are happening. The not-so-great news is that they don’t always happen exactly when we’d like them to happen.

Since its inception, the East Coast Music Hall of Fame has been dedicated to building a community of fans around the artists who crafted and sustain the East Coast music scene. At our 2019 Gala event, fans had the opportunity to come face-to-face with the artists they revere, tell them how much their music means to them and even give them a hug and snap a selfie. The memories of those encounters that night live on in our hearts (and on our Facebook pages) as an indelible reminder of how fulfilling our events can be when they are properly produced and presented.

With that in mind, we have arrived at the (temporarily) heart-breaking realization that we could not possibly exceed your expectations in 2021 as we did in our Inaugural year. Our concern for the safety of all involved, as well as the restrictions that are in place, dictate that we must move our Gala and all associated events to June 6 and 7, 2022. We are optimistic that, at that time, we will be able to celebrate in a safe and secure environment. This morning, we sent a personal e-mail to all ticket-holders and supporters.

At this time, all originally scheduled events are simply re-scheduled to the new dates. We do not have any reason to believe that any of the honorees, originally-scheduled entertainers or special guests will not appear as planned. We are grateful to Caesars Entertainment for their cooperation in ensuring that all of our previously-planned activities will take place as intended at Harrah’s Resort & Casino in Atlantic City. Ticket-holders may simply hold their tickets or log in to our ticketing portal to view or print their tickets online. The ticketing portal is accessible through our website at

If you have a room reservation at Harrah’s, unfortunately, they have to cancel your existing reservation and there will be a brief pause before you will be able to book a new reservation. We have inquired and we regret that there is no better system to handle this. (No action is necessary for those who booked a ticket package that includes a room.)

East Coast Music Hall of Fame 2022

Fans, friends and valued members,

Whether you donated and voted or merely cheered on your favorites from the sidelines, we thank you for supporting the artists who were nominated in the East Coast Music Hall of Fame Legends and Best Music Makers categories. It was our pleasure to extend voting to the end of last month to ensure that all who wanted to vote had the opportunity to do so. Voting did end on October 31st, as planned, and, as planned, we will be announcing the winners at the ceremonies slated for the day of our 2nd Annual Gala. As in our Inaugural Gala and with most ceremonies of this nature, the results are confidential until the event. We all need something to look forward to. We think our 2021 events will be even more special because of this time that we have all been afforded to reflect on how much we treasure live music and how much we treasure the opportunities to gather with other music lovers to celebrate.

We look forward to seeing you.

Billy Grieco
Vice President
