The MAMA’s Are Coming!

This year, the MAMAs go retro lounge as we move our event to the Doubletree Grand Ballroom and Lobby.  Over 10 live performances, 17 awards including 2 new categories thisyear, Rockabilly and Rockshow Promoter. 

Since 2000, the MAMAs have been a showcase for the best local talent in all kinds of music from metal, to acoustic, jazz to blues and hip hop to House DJ.  Amazing performances over the years have come from Good Luck Thrift Store, Flying Blind,  UVR, Megan Slankard, DAM, Moonshine Bandits, Devante, Puffin Billies and so many more.  More incredible performances and surprises are sure to happen this year.

The 2011 MAMAs will honor and recognize the amazing Ernie Bucio with an Annual Ernie Bucio Music Scholarship to support music in our schools and community.

Our entire community works together to make the MAMAs happen and thanks in advance to all the people that donate their time and facilities to make the MAMA Awards one of the best nights of the year.  This MAMA show has been made possible by the Modesto Doubletree Hotel.
