Word came out yesterday that a spate of hometown heroes made it on the long list for a Grammy. According to a post on the ZenHill website Roky Moon and BOLT!, The Sideshow Tramps, The Tontons, The Champion Sisters and Robert Ellis are all up for consideration. All that can be said is: it’s about damn time! Good luck to everyone and, on a personal note, it would be a blast to see the Tramps do John the Revelator live on national TV.
