This Year’s Concert for Cumberland Heights Promises to be a Party at the Ryman Auditorium
‘Here Come the Mummies’ to bring the funk and the fun to this popular fundraiser
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – July 10, 2018 – The Concert for Cumberland Heights on Oct. 2, 2018, will be a fun, memorable night of great music at the historic Ryman Auditorium. This annual concert will feature “Here Come the Mummies” and is the biggest fundraiser of the year to benefit the John Hiatt Fund for Adolescent and Young Adult Treatment at Cumberland Heights. Additionally, some of proceeds will go toward construction of Cumberland Heights’ new youth facility, ARCH Academy, to be competed in 2019.
“Here Come The Mummies” (HCTM) bills themselves as an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian Mummies with a one-track mind. Their “Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave” is sure to get you into the seasonal spirit.
Since their discovery HCTM has been direct support for P-Funk, Al Green, Mavis Staples, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village; become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; played massive festivals like Summer Camp, Common Ground, Voodoo Fest, Musikfest, Suwannee Hulaween, and Riverbend; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America.
The concert will start at 7:30PM. Cumberland Heights will also host a VIP pre-party (ticket details below) for donors from 5PM to 7PM.
Proceeds of the event support Cumberland Heights’ adolescent and young adult treatment programs and have raised more than $3 million in the past 21 years. With a treatment plan based in the 12 Steps, these programs help patients set goals for life-long recovery.
“The Concert for Cumberland Heights is always very popular with the community and our supporters,” said Cumberland Heights’ Chief Marketing & Development Officer Martha Farabee. “This year is going to be such a blast. ‘Here Come the Mummies’ is such a fun band, I predict we will all be out of our seats dancing and singing along for much of the night.”
Here’s what “Here Come the Mummies” have to say about themselves: “Some say we were cursed. Others claim we are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM’s mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for ‘Here Come The Mummies!'”
