The Foundry Well-Represented in This Year’s MAMA Awards

We are very pleased to announce that once again, Madison Music Foundry's is nominated in this year's MAMA Awards. Blast House Studios is nominated for "Studio of the Year" and Blast House recording engineer Landon Arkens is nominated for "Studio Sound Engineer."

In addition to the Foundry awards, we have many instructors and students who are nominated as well. See below for a complete list. It's not easy keeping track of the hundreds of students who pass through the Foundry, so if you are a current or former student, and don't see your name or your group on this list, please email us, and we'll add you.

The MAMAs (Madison Area Music Association) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to put instruments in the hands of kids who can't afford them. The awards ceremony is their high-profile event of the year, which is enjoyed by local musicians and fans alike, but ultimately serves their mission.

For a complete list of all nominees go to: MAMAs Awards
