"As the world faces challenges presented by the Coronavirus, our thoughts surround the physical health of friends, families, coworkers, supporters, and attendees. Our primary concern is for the health and well-being of all those who will be attending our Awards Gala." States Tommy Petillo President and CEO of The East Coast Music Hall of Fame and Lead Singer of The Duprees. "We have an exceptional line-up and two-day event planned and have managed to successfully bring some very deserving legendary names to the forefront and shine a light on their outstanding contributions to music. We are certain that for 2021 we will have much to celebrate as one of the first music events reopening within the United States."

The East Coast Music Hall of Fame is an organization dedicated to the preservation of music from the '50s, '60s, and '70s, The Rock and Roll era, and is the unique vision of Tommy Petillo, ECMHOF Founder and Lead Singer of The Duprees. An Awards Gala to honor legendary and current music makers seemed needed and the best way to honor those from the '50s, '60s, and '70s that never received the recognition they should have for the enormity of their talent and artistic contributions. After enlisting the assistance of Vice President Bill Grieco, Producer Joseph Mirrione, and Musical Director Mark Baron, the first annual event took place at the Wildwoods Convention Center in New Jersey with a phenomenal 2000+ fan turnout. The 2021 annual event will honor legendary and current music-makers with awards to include:

"12" Lifetime Achievement Awards: Honoring the human endeavor to persevere, overcome and achieve a lifetime of dedication by an individual, group, or organization of the many art forms and categories of the music industry. The Lifetime Award Recipients are chosen by The East Coast Music Hall of Fame Board of Directors

"14" Best of The Music Maker Awards: Recognizing the very best of our music makers & producers today! The very best of today's new talent and the music providers who represent all genres of music that continue the musical legacy of the '50s, '60s, and 70's Rock & Roll generations. Best of The Music Maker Award Recipients are chosen by The ECMHOF Ambassador Members.

"12" Legend Awards: Honoring our brightest music stars of the past from Maine to Florida. This award is chosen by the majority vote, in each category by Ambassador Members.

"We knew an awards ceremony like this was well overdue and our 2000+ attendees for June of 2019 proved us to be correct." Continues Tommy Petillo. "For 2021, we now have a new home base at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City that will allow us to comfortably welcome more fans wanting to attend and be a part of this spectacular music event."
