  • History

    Founded in 2000, WYCE Jammie Awards is an annual celebration of the year’s best Michigan music. WYCE’s programming staff votes to determine the winners of Best Album of the Year, Best New Artist, and a number of genre categories. The Jammies ceremony brings together performances by more than 20 local bands on two stages for a night of music, fun, and charity.
