    BEST BAND NAME - Moxi

    If there's one thing you want coursing through a rock band, besides electricity, it's moxie. Singer Catty Tasso hit upon the name in Maine. She saw a bottle of Moxie, the weird old gentian-root soft drink that still has a cult-like following. "That's...

    BEST ROCK RADIO PROGRAM - Boom! Radio

    If Latin alternative music never triumphs in South Florida, don't blame Kike Posada. This tireless crusader for la causa is determined to get the word and rock out by any means necessary: promoting events, publishing Boom! magazine, and in July 2001...

    BEST JAZZ RADIO PROGRAM - Weekend Jazz Saturday with Tracy Fields

    A reformed journalist who wisely joined our NPR affiliate in 1995, Fields takes the honor this year not because she's done something different but rather because she's been consistent -- consistently good. Her playlist spans decades but is selective ...

    BEST LOCAL SONGWRITERS - Elsten Torres and Juan Carlos Perez Soto

    New York City had Simon and Garfunkel, so it's only fitting that Miami's most dynamic songwriting duo should have come together in a tribute to our city. Before September 11 Elsten Torres and Juan Carlos Perez Soto had been writing songs separately f...

    BEST LOCAL LATIN SINGER - Jorge Moreno

    Who knew Desi Arnaz would come back as a Brit-pop-loving hipster with a penchant for vintage clothes? Only a kid who grew up in Miami could bring such left-field treatment to classics "Babal" and "Como Fue." Moreno may have a face that teenyboppers ...

    BEST LOCAL ACOUSTIC PERFORMER - Dean Fields

    Love, like everything else, has imitations, but Dean Fields is the real deal. We just hope we can keep him here, at least for a little while. The curly-topped Virginian has stopped off in Miami for a little booklearnin', but his heart is in his music...

    BEST ROCKABILLY BAND - Lil' Jake and the Boss Tones

    Frankly, Jake ain't that little, but given the scarcity of old-fashioned bass-slappin' rock and roll outfits in these parts, we're not going to nit-pick. And when this slickly coifed, tattooed, and sideburned band gets a good head of steam going, the...

    BEST LOCAL RAP GROUP - Trick Daddy

    For too long, rap in Miami was synonymous in the nation-at-large's mind with Luke's 2 Live Crew. And given that ol' Uncle Luke has been little more than an embarrassing punch line for nigh on a decade now, the ascension of Trick Daddy's gleaming gold...

    BEST LOCAL CARIBBEAN BAND - Afro-Polyphonic World Orchestra

    The Caribbean, claims Cuban writer Antonio Benitez-Rojo, is a meta-archipelago: a giant sponge spiraling out from the Caribbean Sea to Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Americas, the universe, endlessly repeating. The Caribbean, in short, is...

    BEST LOCAL JAZZ ARTIST - Spam Allstars

    BEST LATIN ROCK BAND - Volumen Cero

    There isn't much competition for this category in a majority Latin county, but that's not Volumen Cero's fault. It's been doing all it can to give us a good name. These hard-working boys, with their emo-gothy-hard-rock-en-espaol (except-often-in-Eng...

    Raperos Rule - As rap recedes on the U.S. mainland, reggaetn rises on the enchanted island

    Growing up in Puerto Rico's projects, or caseros, may be no different than in any other hood on the U.S. mainland. Bullets, drugs, and a rap sheet are part of everyday life. But so is music, a legit way for many a street philosopher to escape the su...
