Asbury Park, New Jersey, USA has a rich musical history that includes a strong Blues tradition as well as the Jersey Shore sound. Artists associated with the town include Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Bon Jovi, and many others. Asbury Park's musical history, however, did not begin or end with these talented and influential musicians. In order to recognize the many talented musicians and others associated with the local and regional music scene, Scott Stamper,[1][2] founder of the Wave Gathering Music Festival,[3] and Pete Mantas founded the annual Asbury Park Music Awards (also called the Asbury Music Awards) in 1993. The awards were originally titled "The Golden T-Bird Awards."

The first award ceremony was held in 1993 at a small club on Main Street in Asbury Park called the T-Bird Cafe, owned by Stamper. The awards ceremony was later moved to The Saint and the honors were renamed "The Asbury Park Music Awards" in 1995. The event's attendance quickly exceeded The Saint's capacity, and the ceremony was then rotated among larger venues, including The Fastlane, The Tradewinds, and The Stone Pony.[4] In recent years, the ceremony has been held at The Stone Pony.[1][5] The awards ceremony's format is similar to that of the Grammy Awards.[1][6] The presentation of the awards is interspersed with performances of live, original music and poetry. Award Categories vary somewhat from year to year, but generally include Top Young Band (Under 21), Top Male Acoustic Act, Top Jam Band, Top Male Vocalist, Top Blues Band, Top Female Acoustic, Top Radio/Internet Station to Support Live Music, Top Advant Garde Act, Top Indie Rock Band, Top Female Vocalist, Top Heavy Rock Act, Top Punk/Ska Band, Top Groove Band, Poet Laureate, Top Multi Instrumentalist/Other Instruments, Top Live Performance, Top Americana, Top Rock Band, Top Pop Band, Top Local Release, Top Keyboard Player, Top Bassist, Top Drummer, Top Guitarist, Top Radio Personality to Support Live Music, Song of the Year, Top Journalist In Support of Live Music, Top News Publication in Support of Live Music, Top Music Website in Support of Live Original Music, Best Thing to Happen in 2009/2010, Top Local Club DJ, Beyond Asbury Top Record/EP/Single/Release, Living Legend 2010 James M. Macdonald Award, and “Behind the Scenes” Lifetime Achievement Award.[7]
