Welcome to the Modesto Area Music Association. We are glad you are here and thanks for supporting MAMA.

Chris Murphy - ModestoView Chris Ricci – Chris Ricci Presents Middagh Goodwin – MAMA Association And the whole MAMA team. Modesto Area Music Association is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 and we invite your donations and sponsorship.

The Nomination Process This is a team effort. Over the last few months, the MAMA team has reached out to venue owners, local promoters, event planners, radio DJs, previous winners to get the best information possible. It is cross indexed with active social media efforts, updated websites and regular gig schedule as well as the availability of online music. The best way to make sure that you are on the MAMA radar is make sure that you send us your events and gigs to get on our calendar and keep your website/Facebook/music sales presences up to date. All of that wrapped up is what creates a nominee.

This is the most democratic and quantifiable way to showcase our musicians. Thanks to all that participated and apologies to all that Middagh had to ask over and over. See you at the MAMAs.

Musicians and promoters, send your gig info to so we can promote your event.
