Cast Your Vote! Parnelli Voting Is Now Open

FOH Staff • News • September 6, 2006

LAS VEGAS, NV–The people have spoken, the nominees have been tabulated, and the polls are open. Voting for the 2006 Parnelli Awards has begun! Subscribers to PLSN or FRONT of HOUSE magazines can cast their votes for the best of the live production industry online at Since 2001, the Parnelli award has recognized pioneering and influential individuals and their contributions to the live event industry, honoring both individuals and companies. This year's winners in such categories as Lighting Designer, Set/Scenic Designer, Lighting Company, Staging Company, FOH Mixer, Sound Company and more will be determined by online votes, so let your voice be heard.

Much more than just being about the person who gets the great gig and pulls it off flawlessly, a Parnelli award is also about moving our industry forward with the same qualities that defined the person after whom it is named. Named after Rick "Parnelli" O'Brien, an extraordinary production manager and human being, the award is given to those who, like O'Brien, exemplify the "four Hs": Humanity, humility, honesty and humor.

Part of the prestige of the Parnellis lies on their foundation as a peer-recognized award. To win a Parnelli a person or firm is first nominated by their peers. These nominees are then voted on by their peers, and a winner is declared at the Parnelli Awards ceremony, taking place this year at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, October 20, 2006.
