Hmong Music Awards

Wicked Mayhem presents the first Hmong Music Awards live at Fresno, CA to be held on December 27th, 2012 at the Warnors Theatre from 7pm – 10pm and the after party from 10pm-2am.

Warnors Theatre (pictured below) is located in downtown Fresno – a 2,104-seat Pantages Theatre. From the architectural features that are as remarkable as they are stunning, to the completely unique visual and acoustic experience, the Warnors Theatre offers you a truly delightful experience whether you come to enjoy our movie series, a comedy or stage show, one of our many live music shows, or even your own wedding!

As 2012 comes to a closing, so does all the hard workers who has put in a lot of effort in reaching beyond their respective community. This year, I have observed from afar a huge new talented Hmong artists on the rise and old friends to commend on their roles in trying to implement inspiration to a whole new level. There has been various Hmong events that has done a full circle into the beauty that are Hmong. The Hmong New Year has exploded through YouTube, making the Hmong New Year the most anticipated events of the year and enjoying the sound of Hmong popular musicians.

This year, CEO and President Sid Lo of Wicked Mayhem will be sponsoring the first annual Hmong Music Award (HMA) live in Fresno, CA on a one night event in honoring the most talented Hmong individuals or groups for the year of 2012.
