2006 Jammys Announced

The Sixth Annual Jammy Awards have finally been announced despite weeks and weeks of Green Apple Music Festival teases.

The lineup is okay (from what they’re showing us) and the nominations are so-so. You be the judge.

Frank Zappa will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award, which makes sense that Dweezil’s onboard for the sure-to-be-interesting tribute they’d have planned.

Blues Traveler, Napoleon Brock Murphy, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Peter Frampton, Savion Glover, Guster, Richie Havens, Angelique Kidjo, Steve Kimock, Bettye LaVette, Little Feat, DJ Logic, Mad Professor, Baaba Maal, moe., The Mutaytor, Stephen Perkins, Joe Satriani, Martin Sexton, McCoy Turner, Dweezil Zappa, and more more more…

Full nominations after the jump. Cast your ballot here…
