Oh my SAMA

Well guys, I think we are finally recovered. Just about. Last Thursday was the 6th annual Scottish Alternative Music Awards, and as this years sponsors, we went hard.  Celebrating the best in emerging talent has always been part of the Rebel ethos so meld that together with a kick ass party and live music and you've got a proper night on the tiles for the team.

DJ Jim Gellatly hosted the night in which special guests Vic Galloway, Robert Florence, and synth trio PRIDES presented awards. Performance from We Came From Wolves, Crash Club and Holy Esque were enjoyed by the 600-strong crowd.

Popular local hip hop duo Hector Bizerk ended the night with a barn-storming surprise performance including collaborations with Pronto Mama and more.

SAMAs founder and organiser Richy Muirhead was delighted with how the night went.

Muirhead said: “This years SAMAs was a real showcase of the strong musical talent that exists here in Scotland. The sixth SAMAs has been the most inspiring yet with so many deserved winners and nominees. The 7 winners are completely different and from different regions of Scotland – and that’s the most important thing for us…celebrating and showcasing new music!”
