The Detroit Music Awards (DMA) was initially proposed in 1988. Presented by the Motor City Music Foundation, the multi-genre awards ceremony was established to bring recognition to Detroit area musicians. The first award show was held in 1992 at Detroit’s Music Hall, and moved to the State Theatre in 1993. In 1998, the organization merged with the Metro Times-sponsored Detroit Music Awards. It has now held at The Fillmore Detroit theatre annually in April. Since its inception, the DMA has featured some of Detroit’s most notable musical artists; including Bob Seger, The Clark Sisters, Eminem, George Clinton and Parliament, Glenn Frey, Grand Funk Railroad, Kid Rock, Martha Reeves, The Miracles, Insane Clown Posse, Smokey Robinson, Ted Nugent, and Was Not Was.
