Every year at the annual Backstage Ball, the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition recognizes individuals and organizations who have made a meaningful contribution to the improvement of the area’s music scene over the course of the previous year. Do you know someone who has had a positive impact on the Greater Des Moines music community in 2015? This could be a musician/band, promoter, fan, writer, venue, educator, community leader, artist, or any person or organization that fits the bill of being Des Moines #1 music fan! A volunteer committee will select a few of the nominees to be recognized at Backstage Ball on Friday, February 26, 2016.

Tell us who you’d like to see recognized and why by emailing us at info@desmoinesmc.com with the subject line “BSB Nomination.”

Submissions for nominees will close at 5pm CST on Monday, December 28th.

Backstage Ball is still early in the planning stages! If you’d like to volunteer for a committee or join a meeting for more information, email your inquiry to info@desmoinesmc.com.
