2016 Jack Richardson London Music Awards Ready to Roll

The date is set and the London Music Hall will be ready to celebrate the best in London music. Sunday April 17th, 2016 over 20 awards will be handed out, including the Life Time Achievement Award and the naming of the 2016 inductees to the Jack Richardson London Music Hall of Fame. In addition, live performances by London and area musicians will highlight the gala awards show which is free to the public.

Garth Richardson, son of legendary music producer Jack Richardson, will be the guest of honour at the 12th annual Jack Richardson London Music Awards Education day/seminar day and Trade Show at the London Music Club on April 16th, 2016.

Like his father, the younger Richardson is a music production mastermind in his own right, having produced recordings for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Hedley, among others. Based in Vancouver, he is also co-owner of the Nimbus School of Recording Arts in Vancouver with Jack Richardson protégé Bob Ezrin.

Garth Richardson will be front and centre at both the gala awards show taking place on Sunday, April 17th at The London Music Hall – 185 Queens Avenue (doors open at 6:00 p.m. – show starts at 7:00 p.m.) and at the Education day/Seminar day and Trade Show at the London Music Club, 470 Colborne Street, on Saturday, April 16th.

As always, both events are free to attend.
