"The Secretions are men of peace in a world of mayhem. They are poets and onanists and bloodsucking freaks. They are punk rock."

Greetings and Salutations everyone,

I write this in hopes of getting you to spend about 5 minutes of your day to go to www.SAMMIES.com and register to vote for this year's "Sacramento Area Music Awards" otherwise known as "The Sammies". The Secretions are nominated for best band in the PUNK category.

Being nominated is an honor. As un-punk as it may sound, being recognized by your peers and being voted on by your fans really makes Mickie, Paul, and I grateful for all the work we have put into this band.

However, the Sammies always brings mixed emotions for us as a band because we usually end up in the same category with other bands with whom we are friends with. This year is no exception. Along with The Secretions, our brothers in Final Summation and The Helper Monkeys have also been nominated. The Bananas, a band that has been around for nearly as long as we have, are also nominated. Newer bands on this year's punk nominees include the amazing Blame Betty and The Mayyors.

The Secretions have been fortunate enough to win 2 Sammies, one in 2006 and another in 2007. When a band wins 3 Sammies, they are then inducted into the Sacramento Area Music Hall of Fame. After they are inducted, they are then ineligible to be nominated again. That means, we would NEVER have those mixed emotions of having to "go up against" our friends. This year, I am asking you to vote for The Secretions and thus inducting us into the Hall of Fame.

In the entire history of The Sacramento Area Music Awards there have only been 2 punk bands to ever be inducted into The Hall of Fame. I am asking you to help us make history and make The Secretions the 3rd punk band to ever be inducted into The Hall of Fame.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

Danny Secretion
