The Deli's Staff





Thanks to our Jurors and Staff!

Burlington, Boston, Providence, Portland and the rest of New England wouldn't be known for its stellar, incomparable music scene if it wasn't for the men and women behind the curtains. They are sound engineers, promoters, tour managers, journalists and people who work in our beloved clubs. I thank them for their hard work and their willingness to participate in Deli - New England's first yearly poll.

Jurors

Adena Harford - Writer and Founder of the Deli Burlington

Alex Budney - Nectar's/Metronome 

Autumn Pincus - Tour Manager

Clay Fernald - Middle East Nightclub

Dan Cardinal - Ample-Fi Recording

Mark Kaye - Hear Now Live

Paddy Reagan - Angioplasy Media/Monkey House

Randi Millman - TT the Bear's Place

Ryan Spaulding - Ryan's Smashing Life

Susan Scotti - Club Passim

I am amazed, flattered and proud to see how well the site has been doing and the fanatic support from the New England music scene and the great writers I have on staff. And most importantly I thank the musicians for their music.

The 1st Deli New England Poll comes to an end - thanks to you all!

We would like to thank all the jurors and writers who helped us with their vote put together this list of emerging New England artists. Thanks to the readers for participating and most importantly thanks to the bands for getting the word out about The Deli's poll. 

 

Indie-rockers Mean Creek (in the picture), one of Boston's most talked about bands, won the 2009 Best Emerging Artist - congrats to them! They were a definite favorite amongst our jurors. Mellow rootsy-folk, Michael Bernier and the Uprising placed second, thanks to a strong support from their fan base in the readers' poll, while Boston soul sensation Jesse Dee came in third, gathering votes from Jurors, Writers and Deli Readers. More about the winners coming soon to the Deli, so stay tuned!
