4th Annual JAM AWARDS NOMINEES
TOP NEW BAND
The TOP NEW BAND is for the top new bands. The criteria for a "New" band is sometimes difficult to define in clear terms. If an act has been an Honoree of any JAM Award (except 18&Under and Under 21) as a billed original artist then they cannot be nominated here (change of billed name not included). If an act has released an official album or EP and been nominated for any JAM Award (except 18&Under and Under 21) in the same year then they cannot be nominated for this JAM Award in any following year. Original material released (CD/Online/Digital) within the eligibility period is also a major consideration.
