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!'”

Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 13 at 10AM via Ticketmaster outlets, online at Concert for Cumberland Heights as well as Ticketmaster, the Ryman box office and by phone 800.745.3000. Tickets are $49.50, $39.50 and $29.50.

Cumberland Heights Alumni Association Event
Cumberland River Cruise

Cumberland River CruiseLet’s go cruising with Captain Jim Steele, the originator of Scenic Nature Cruises in Tennessee. Every year since 2002, he has entertained thousands of passengers aboard the Blue Heron, a U.S. Coast Guard inspected 40’ pontoon boat. The scenery offers both relaxation and adventure, as the boat glides past waterfront homes and through 30,000 acres of wildlife refuge. The foliage and wildlife changes from spring to summer to fall. The narration, music and mood are tailored to the passengers aboard!

Water & Snacks Included!

WHAT: Cumberland River Cruise
WHEN: Saturday 5/19/18, 4:00PM – Sunset
WHERE: Blue Heron Cruises

Come join us for the April 26, 2018 Sumner County Community Education event on adolescent & substance abuse event at Indian Lake Peninsula Church. By the time they are seniors, almost 70% of high school students will have tried alcohol, half will have taken an illegal drug, nearly 40 percent will have smoked a cigarette, and more than 20 percent will have used a prescription drug for a non- medical purpose. Join us for an educational evening with Dr. Chapman Sledge, as well as other substance abuse professionals, to learn more about youth brain development and the effects substance abuse can have during these developmental stages.

There are many reasons adolescents use these substances, including the desire for new experiences, an attempt to deal with problems or perform better in school, and simple peer pressure. Adolescents are “biologically wired” to seek new experiences and take risks, as well as to carve out their own identity.

DATE: Thursday, April 26, 2018 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM CDT
LOCATION: Indian Lake Peninsula Church, 235 Indian Lake Road, Hendersonville, TN 37075

Alumni Relations of Cumberland Heights invites to join us for an experiential activity and a day of fellowship experiencing emotions in a dynamic way! The Alumni Ropes Day consists of both low and high rope elements and processes. These experiential activities place the participant in scenarios, often outside of comfort zones, that allow emergence of a core truth about themselves. Concepts of powerlessness, surrender, keeping it simple, honesty, courage, community support, trust, faith, and many others emerge. The participant is able to draw parallels and metaphors from their experience then transfer it to practical application to their recovery journey.

What: Alumni Ropes Day & Escape Game (Boxed Lunch Included)
When: Saturday, April 27 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Where: Cumberland Heights Alumni Pavilion

Cumberland Heights Alumni Association Annual Easter Egg Hunt


  1. TALK TO YOUR SPONSOR – Talk to your sponsor and others in recovery. They will share their experience, strength and hope with you.
  2. GROW TOGETHER – If you’re dating someone in recovery continue to work your individual programs to make it work one day at a time.
  3. PUT RECOVERY FIRST – Keep a strong relationship with your Higher Power so you’re happy with or without someone in your life. When relationships don’t work it can be devastating. If you’re not emotionally sober this could trigger a relapse. Put your recovery first.


  1. DATE TOO SOON – Don’t date in early recovery. Relationships take time and energy. If you’re focused on a relationship you’re taking away from your recovery.
  2. GO TO ALL THE SAME MEETINGS – Don’t attend all the same 12-Step meetings. Continue to go to regular meetings on your own.
  3. PUT YOURSELF IN UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATIONS – If you’re dating someone who’s not in recovery set clear boundaries. If they’re involved for the right reasons, and alcohol is not a problem, this shouldn’t be a difficult request.
