You’ve honored us with a TON of Creative Loafing Tampa Best of the Bay Reader’s Poll Awards in the past. As the area grows, the competition certainly stiffens. We count ourselves lucky just to be among such fine company this (and every) year. Jobsite and our artists once again received a number of nominations for the 2017 Reader’s Poll. Crossing our fingers that at least some of them bring home the Loafie!

Though most categories are only nominating a human, unattached to a show, we wanted to provide you this quick and handy list for you to consider when you cast your A&E votes. Make sure to get it in by Aug. 23!

A special thing to note is that our production of Gloucester Blue comes heavily nominated including nods for the director, set designer, lighting designer, three of the actors PLUS the nomination for Best Local Theater Production (a grand total of seven). We had eight nominated artists involved in our production of As You Like It. Way to go! Congrats to all nominees in all categories!

And a nod to one of our Artistic Associates who is also an amazing visual artist, Best Local Artist CL Doesn’t Cover: Spencer Meyers.

LIZZIE musicians Jeremy Douglass (music director, keys), Tom Kersey (cello), and Mark Warren (guitar) — all of whom are also returning for The Threepenny Opera — were all nominated for Best Instrumentalist. LIZZIE musician Rebekah Pulley (guitar/keys) was nominated for Best Singer-Songwriter. Warren’s Sara Rose Band and Sarge and the Aeromen also received nominations. Finally, The Florida Björkestra, Douglass’ brainchild, has been nominated for Best Local Band, Pop Band, Cover Band and Concert and TFB singer Colleen Cherry (seen as Lizzie Borden herself, and also returning for Threepenny) has been nominated for Best Vocalist. WHEW!

See The Florida Bjorkestra’s Buffyfest, including a staging of Once More With Feeling that includes several Jobsite members, at the Palladium on Sep. 23.

Please keep us in mind when you vote for all of your local favorites, and please pass this poll on to your other Jobsite-lovin’ pals! We clearly understand that this is a glorified popularity contest, but who doesn’t like to feel popular every now and again?! 🙂
