From the beginning the Missoula Area Music Association has been a connected effort. On January 15th, 2019 two strangers of different musical backgrounds started the conversation at Wave & Circuit in Missoula, Montana. After realizing the musical climate in our community Maria Zepeda & Anthony Brown decided to hold meetings to inspire a change. On February 21st, 2019, MAMA held its first official meeting. This meeting of 13 people acted as a sounding board that created the base of what MAMA can become.
