What is WAMA?

The Washington Area Music Association, better known as WAMA is an umbrella organization uniting musicians, concert promoters, entertainment lawyers, recording engineers, managers, graphic artists, and others working within the DC music industry.

Among WAMA's programs and benefits they are probably best known for their annual Wammies music ceremony, in which awards are given (in all genre's) to WAMA members, who are nominated and voted on by WAMA members.

WAMA also put's together and distributes a membership directory, WAMA Pages, sends out frequent e-newsletters, and provides you with a membership card.

The annual cost to become a WAMA member is $35.

In order to attend the Wammies there is an additional $30 cost per attendee. But in my opinion the money you dish out is well worth the networking.

Wishing you continued success!
