2009 MAMAs Recap

Thank you to everyone who came out to the MAMAs last night, and congratulations are in order for those who won! We also wants to thank everyone for showing so much support last night! There was much excitement about the return of Rick’s Cafe as Local Sounds Magazine and the debut of Local Sounds TV! We were impressed with how many artists were in line for TV interviews! We hope to have the coverage up on as soon as we can!

Local Sounds to be at the 2009 MAMAs on May 9th

Local Sounds is proud to announce that it will once again have a presence at this year’s Madison Area Music Awards on May 9th, 2009 at the Barrymore Theatre in Madison, Wisconsin.

As usual we will be set up in the lobby near the doors to the theatre.  For those of you who have been to the MAMAs in the past, you’ll know right where we are!  Feel free to stop by and say hi!  There will be a handful of Local Sounds representatives on hand to provide information, sell MAMAs merchandise, and answer your questions.

This year we will have a few announcements to make!  The Madison Area Music Awards has become a sort of staple location for Local Sounds to unveil new services and announcements to the public.  This year looks to be one of the best yet.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Local Sounds, An Official Sponsor of the 2009 MAMAs

Local Sounds is proud to announce that it is an official sponsor for the 2009 Madison Area Music Awards, to be held on May 9th, 2009 at the Barrymore Theater in Madison, Wisconsin. The Madison Area Music Awards (MAMAs) is a nonprofit organization with the mission of putting musical instruments into kids’ hands.

True, this isn’t the first year we’ve been recognized as an official sponsor, however, with each passing year the status and reputation of being a sponsor for such a great (and young) organization becomes more and more significant. This year is no different.

Details regarding organization efforts, fundraisers, the awards show, and the voting and nomination processes can be found on the official Madison Area Music Awards website at
