Lehigh Valley Underground Wins Three Lehigh Valley Music Awards

BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Mar. 5, 2018 – Lehigh Valley Underground, the premier community resource for local music and entertainment news in eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey, captured three total awards at the 19th Annual Lehigh Valley Music Awards in a ceremony Sunday night inside of the Musikfest Café at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks.

The accolades are the first in Lehigh Valley Underground’s history, dating back to the organization’s official launch in January 2016. Lehigh Valley Underground won an award on each the Fan and Industry ballots, with the organization received a nod for Outstanding Music Website on the Fan ballot, breaking a long-running winning streak previously held by popular local 1960s tribute band, The Large Flowerheads.
