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 events@modestoview.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.
