The RAMI Organization

Each year the RAMI organization hosts several events to help fund the Gary S. Wilmer RAMI Music Scholarship and to promote the local music community. Our premier event is the RAMI Awards Ceremony which is held in April each year. The RAMI Awards recognize and celebrate the efforts of groups and individuals who have involvement in the local music community. Other events include a benefit, held in March each year, featuring some of the premier retro/pop bands in the area.
