The CCMA awards banquet starts at 6 p.m. tonight (March 4) in the Waterfront CDE room at the Hyatt in San Francisco. We’re starting earlier than usual because we have lots more award winners this year. (Early-bird tickets might have inadvertently had a later start time.)
If you have already paid, come with your printed or digital version of the tickets and you will be able to be scanned in quickly. The box office will be set up at a table for anyone who needs to pay for their tickets or buy more. They’re $80 at the door — cash or check accepted.
