The Modesto Area Music Awards celebrates performers from around the greater Modesto Area. Over the last 18 Years, we have seen some Winners go on to National and International Fame; Flying Blind, Grandaddy, Moonshine Bandits, DEV, UVR, and Megan Slankard have all found success beyond the 209. 
This year the MAMAs celebrate 18 years and I am sure that Murphy and Ricci had no idea that they would still be hosting the Show all these years later. It is a testament to how much talent we have in the area.We can only hope that many of this year's class are recognized beyond just receiving the stainless steel Carhop trophy. The talent is there as well as the drive for many of the nominees. The Event is Free but is invite only. Remember this is a Black Tie encouraged event so dress to impress. 
Voting went live on September 1st and will end on October 8th. 21 Categories with over 230 nominees to choose from. Everything from Rock to Rap, Jazz to Metal. The Awards Show will once again take place at the Historic State Theatre in downtown Modesto, CA. With any good awards show, there will be tons of Music from bands from all the categories. 
One of the highlights of every year is the Lifetime Achievement Award. 2017 will be no different, this year the Lifetime Achievement Award is going to Mike Allsup guitarist for Three Dog Night. You will not want to miss the extended set that will be performed by Mike and Friends. 
Representatives from the City as well as the County, local Radio and Press and members of the Arts Community along with last year's winners, will be presenting the Awards to those you have chosen to be worthy. The Modesto Area Music Awards is the one night you will see people from all walks of life, fans of all genres of music, under the same roof for one night. All come together for the same reason. To Celebrate Music and the Venues and Events that provide a stage for performers.
If you want to watch but cannot attend for one reason or another it will be streamed live at www.modestoview.com. Doors open at 6 pm and will start promptly at 6:30 pm. 
If you have not voted make sure you do before the polls close at 11:59 pm October 8th at www.modestoareamusic.com/vote you are the Academy, your Vote chooses the winners. 
Please support all the venues that host Live Local Music, buy the bands merchandise without them, there would be no local music community.
