Welcome to the Modesto Area Music Association.
Soon, we will be presenting the 2016 MAMA awards at the State Theatre on October 11, 2016. But in the meantime, you, the local music fan and listener, will choose your favorite local bands, artists, venues and events. So put your headphones on, and listen to the radio, “purchase” local CDs from Local bands, download their music, see tham at local venues and vote for your favorite. You can vote right here. Get going. Vote!
We are excited to celebrate Modesto’s Silvermoon Band. Celebrating their 40 Year Anniversary, Silvermoon has been rockin’ non-stop for four decades, performing all over the world. What makes them so special is how they give back and donate to the community with fundraisers like the upcoming Teddy Bear Fundraiser in November. Join us in congratulating Silvermoon
The MAMA Awards will begin at 7 pm on October 11, and the invitation only award show will be live streamed at modestoview.com for the whole world to see. You can watch live as each award is announced and celebrate with your fellow music fans.
One vote per person and voting will end at 11:59pm on Sunday October 9 (John Lennon’s birthday). Celebrate our local music. Oh yeah, get voting, and tell a friend.
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 email@example.com so we can promote your event.
Hall of Fame
You can check out the history of these dynomite winners. Check out the MAMA Hall of Fame. You can see who has been making the musical contribution to Modesto over the years. MAMA is all about diversity. If a band wins a MAMA, they are added to the Hall of Fame. They are not elegible for nomination for two years, so learn some more about this year's nominees and your previous favorites will be back in the running soon. Listen to local music and spread the love. Check out the MAMA page on facebook.com/modestoareamusic
Past MAMA Award shows have been held at The State Theatre, Fat Cat, the Gallo Center, the Doubltree and Club Maxx. The MAMAs are held this year in the historic State Theatre. There have been some great performances, some big surprises and best of all, the MAMAs are a night that is shared by all of the radio stations and the Modesto Bee with the best of the Modesto Area performers.
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.
