May the Fourth Be With You-Star Wars Day

May the Fourth Be With You-Star Wars Day
Since 1977, “May the Force be With You” has been part of the global lexicon. This phrase, created by Modesto native George Lucas symbolizes the magic and influence of his epic film Star Wars, the follow-up film to his breakthrough American Graffiti. Just say "May the 4th Be With You" out loud and you will hear the pun that so many Star Wars fans worldwide have used to proclaim their love of the saga.

Modesto area music

Modesto area music
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.
