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.

This is a special day here in Modesto USA!
This year is the 40th Anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars. May 25, 1977, was the day that changed modern film forever. From the opening theme and the rolling script, the world had a new lexicon of interstellar characters, starships and even speed measurements.
