I might have gotten some of the categories wrong, as they usually weren't repeated and I wasn't always paying as much attention as I ought.
There were also a bunch of theater awards, but I didn't write those down.
Best Open Mike: AS220

Best Choir Groiup: Providence Gay Men's Chorus

Best Blues/R&B Act: Steve Smith & the Nakeds

Artistic Vision Awards: These were special awards given to people working to build Providence's artistic community. Two were given: one to Matt Montgomery, who organized the 'Music at the Museum' Friday night events at the RISD museum, and Bill Hanney, who organized the 'Theatre by the Sea' productions in Matunuck.
Best Live Act: I didn't catch this band's name, unfortunately. Consulting my notes, I see that three guys went up on stage to accept the award and that they all wore hats.
