2014 Review Music Awards "Rock Guitarist – Pete Metropoulos"
“Here are the winners of the 2014 Review Music Awards "Rock Guitarist – Pete Metropoulos" BAY CITY, MI – Robert Martin sure knows how to throw a party. On Sunday, April 27, the Lumber Barons Brewery was the place you wanted to be, the entire night a celebration of the musicians who make the Great Lakes Bay Region great. It was the sort of night where Andy Reed jumped behind the trap set with Jeff Yantz and the Barnhands “and he doesn’t even play drums,” Yantz said. Greta Van Fleet’s Samuel Kiszka watched The ORGANization from the wings and seeing him, renown organist Dan Sliwinski headed over during the set to share a few laughs. “I feel like I should know these guys and I do now,” said Kiszka’s bandmate, Daniel Wagner. The room was quiet as Martin, publisher and editor of Review Magazine, remembered the many contributions the late Elwin “Al” Limberg and Jim Schmidtke made to the region’s music scene. - Sue WHite, MLive (Apr 28, 2014)
