About US

- Our mission -

The Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) is a volunteer organization whose purpose is to educate and recognize the achievements and accomplishments of individuals in the Wisconsin music industry. In addition, we endeavor to provide annual scholarships to students and/or emerging artists in the Wisconsin community; promote the Wisconsin music scene; and execute an awards ceremony annually.


Since 1980, WAMI has worked to:

  • Improve communication and interaction among members

  • Present awards to honor and celebrate the accomplishments of the Wisconsin music industry

  • Produce music industry/music business seminars and workshops

  • Accumulate information for use within a comprehensive Wisconsin music industry directory

  • Partner with other Wisconsin-based organizations with a shared mission

  • Encourage, promote and educate musicians.
