NEW YORK CITY -- The Amusement and Music Owners Association of New York is holding a dinner fundraiser on April 11 at Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse at 44 West 56th St. in Manhattan. AMOA-NY executive director said the association will once again conduct its “Tribute to Music” program, which last year bestowed an award on folk music legend Peter Yarrow
of Peter, Paul and Mary fame.
This year, according to Frank, "one of America’s all-time recording stars, a giant of the music industry, is flying in from L.A." to accept AMOA-NY’s Jukebox Artist of the Year” award. "This music group has created vast opportunity for operators -- and has put an enormous amount of $$$ in the pockets of operators because of their popularity and success."
Founded in the 1940s, AMOA-NY Inc. is a nonprofit group that represents the interests of businesses that own and install coin-operated amusement and music equipment in locations throughout New York State. It has about 65 members.
