Pop Goes the Culture Awards and Variety Show
The 2nd and possibly annual awards event presented by A-Sides with Jon Chattman was hysterical! The event took place at the Alamo Drafthouse so Yonkers Lager and Yonkers IPA were flowing freely to say the least. Hosted by Broadway star and Westchester native John Treacy Egan (Sister Act), the show honored an eclectic mix of pop culture royalty: party-anthem rocker Andrew W.K. (Lifetime Achievement in Partying), Capitol Theatre owner Peter Shapiro (Westchester’s Savior Award), Tony-Award Winning and Blue Bloods actor Gregory Jbara (Jbest Achievement Putting a Voice to Someone Else’s Face), Tony Nominee and Broadway Star Constantine Maroulis (Lifetime Achievement of Being Constantine Maroulis Award) and rising rock group The Chevin (Buzz Band – 2014). Yonkers Brewing Co. was lucky enough to receive the Mom & Pop Award along with Coffee Labs in Tarrytown Co. in Yonkers. On top of the amazing awards we got to hear live music performances from The Chevin, Emily Angell, Todd Carey, Mary C. and the Stellars, Gary Chattman, Bearbones, and Charlie Scopoletti. What a great night with family, friends and best of all – taking home an award.
