MAMAView: Modesto Area Music Wins

The State Theatre was the site for the 20th Anniversary of the Modesto Area Music Awards and with a record number of votes coming in we were set for a celebration of a lifetime. Cole Hinke and the Debauchery entertained the guests as they entered on the red carpet and drank cocktails waiting for the festivities inside to begin. Representatives from the City, the County, Radio, Print and Television were all in attendance to help present. We had some amazing hall of fame performances from past winners that brought the crowd to their feet. Congratulations to all the MAMAnees and thank you all for playing the halls, the bars, the cafes and theatres for us to enjoy.
