In March 2011, The Oasis Smooth Jazz Awards Weekend was cancelled just days prior to the events leaving fans and scheduled artists in disbelief. Bruce Nazarian, aka The Lemonator, aka The Digital Guy, stepped in, put together a showcase of artists to perform at Anthology and the Lemonade Weekend was born.
The Lemonade Weekend 2.0 is scheduled for March 20-23, 2014, in Hollywood, CA. The four day musical event includes the VIP Founder's party on Thursday night, followed by music all day Friday and Saturday, and special closing day events on Sunday.
The First Annual Citrus Music Awards are a part of the Lemonade Weekend 2.0, and will recognize excellence in several musical formats, for instrumentalists, singers, producers, sidemen, venues, producers, arrangers, writers, and even radio stations and presenters.
