This year, we celebrate and honor 20 different categories that keep the music scene alive. We will be recognizing the Lifetime Achievement of one of our legendary bands from the 1960s, the Ratz. They are still performing today and will be performing at the MAMAs.

The MAMAs are a celebration of the huge talent here in town. It is not so much as who is the best, or most popular, but the recognition of all of the hard working people in the local music industry here, from the bands, the venues, the promoters and the people that work behind the scenes to make it all happen.

Best of all, you are the academy. There is no hidden committee, just you the people that love local music. You vote and you choose and with every vote, you help spread the word to people to check out the Modesto area music scene so we can all make it better and more successful.
