The voting for the Members Choice Awards has started! While nominations could be made by anyone, ONLY CBS Members Can Vote for the Awards themselves! If you aren’t a CBS member you can still join on the website and participate in the voting.
The Awards will be announced at the CBS MCA Show at the Buffalo Rose on December 15th.
Nominees include Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene; The Movers & Shakers; and The Tuffenuffs!
Kerry Pastine is now infamous for her no-holds-barred, pedal-to-the-metal live shows and that reputation has landed her on some of the best stages, shows and festivals throughout the US. From playing sweaty, sold-out clubs as a headliner, to earning the coveted support slot for bands like Brian Setzer, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Los Lobos and The Steve Miller Band, Kerry and her band are wowing audiences everywhere. Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene is the secret weapon for every kind of festival or show. The band has elements of blues, swing, rockabilly, classic rock and soul and has won over all genres and age groups. Their high-energy stage presence elevates the energy and gets the crowd rockin’!
The Movers & Shakers are a dynamic collaboration of family and friends. Their live performances have become the stuff of legend in the Rocky Mountain region. The band’s energy and chemistry are the result of longstanding friendships and family members. Each member is either related or has one or more friendships in the group which date back a decade or more. Their style is rock and soul straight from the heart. They come to play!
Play what? Original music that is informed by everything from 60’s soul music, blues, contemporary alt rock and even post punk. Band members ages range from mid twenties to mid sixties. Anything goes. Cover tunes range from Ray Charles and Otis Redding to Blackstreet and Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats.
The Tuffenuffs – This iconic duo merge powerful vocals with masterful blues on the keys; Stacey’s vocal range is blaring when she sings in baritone and gut-wrenchingly beautiful when slaying the highest of soprano notes. It is a simple elegance at its finest while being the perfect storm.
Danny and Stacey are genuine staples in our blues society; their compassion for music, the appreciation of performing, and musical talent are all that anyone can ask for from musicians.
The combination of Stacey’s beautiful vocals and Danny’s skills on the keys allow for their performance to operate in utter peace; every single soul who witness this duo are in awe and know that the bar has been set.

How were the names on the ballot chosen? They were submitted by blues fans via open nomination form and it was advertised at events, on Facebook, and on the Colorado Blues website. Nominations were accepted until 11/05/19. As this is a Colorado event, out-of-State performers were not eligible, so some national performers that were nominated were left off of the Individual Awards ballots. National performers remain eligible for the “Favorite Live Moment” award. The “Favorite Live Moment” considers only live moments occurring in 2019 and prior years were not eligible. Otherwise, all nominees are listed, unless they requested to be omitted from consideration. If you have questions regarding the ballot and nominees, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Votes are tabulated and verified by an outside agency.
