On the heels of those piddly Junos comes a new major awards show that will put all others to shame: the Southern Ontario Roots Endowment (the SOREs) will be debuting in Hamilton on April 31, 2014.

This brand-new organization is the brainchild of Hamilton Blues Lovers CEO, Lou.  We met up with the elusive blogger to discuss why we needed more awards.

"Most of those programs are about talent, skill, songwriting and other such nonsense," Lou stated, "It's about time there was an awards ceremony for what really matters in the music world."  The result has been unique categories such as bodacious hair, coolest beard, sexiest blogger and more.

"The SOREs are open to any roots musician in the Southern Ontario area," Lou added, "and instead of handing out useless trophies like other TV shows I won't name, we plan on giving them something musicians can always use: an extra large pizza.  Now that's an endowment well done!"

Our esteemed blogger has decided to pull out all the stops for this stupendous ceremony.  After a huge search, they've decided to hold the first celebration at April Fulcilli's House of Used Pasta (where their motto is "You'd almost swear it's fresh!").

Sparing no expense, the SORE committee have also hired Jaleel White, "Urkel" from Family Matters, as the MC.

"It was important that we get a major A-List star for the debut," Lou explained, "Thanks to a sponsorship from Luigi's 8-Track Hut, we were able to get him.  Luckily, he had a hole in his busy schedule".
