The Pensado Awards has announced the date and venue for its fourth annual award ceremony – dubbed by insiders as the must-attend audio event of the year. Created by Herb Trawick and Dave Pensado of Penwick Media (the producers of Pensado's Place and other industry-leading audio-related media), the awards were founded as a means of acknowledging talented music producers, engineers, mixers, songwriters and their work, serving as a grand opportunity for the best pros, amateurs, brands and press to come together as one community to celebrate the uncelebrated. Since its inception, the show has continued to gain momentum and garner attention throughout the industry and beyond.
This year's festivities will take place on Sunday, December 3, 2017, at Los Angeles' historic Fonda Theatre, 6126 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90028. The Fonda will provide an intimate backdrop for this year's Pensado Awards 4, which will feature an entirely new vibe and new show format using cutting-edge technology, plus additional surprises throughout the night. This year's co-hosts are drummer Samantha Maloney (Hole, Mötley Crüe, Peaches), legendary producer, engineer and mixer Chris Lord-Alge (Pink, Foo Fighters, Avril Lavigne, Green Day) and Kosine of acclaimed production duo Da Internz (Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, John Legend). Pensado Awards 4 is sponsored by hip-hop production collective 1500 or Nothin', an American musical ensemble composed of record producers, songwriters, musicians and music videographers, based in Inglewood, California. Other main sponsors include The Blackbird Academy, Avid, Westlake Pro, LANDR and DTS.
