TheÂ Concert for Cumberland HeightsÂ onÂ Oct. 2, 2018, will be a fun, memorable night of great music at the historicÂ Ryman Auditorium. This annual concert will feature â€œHere Come the Mummiesâ€ and is the biggest fundraiser of the year to benefit theÂ John Hiatt Fund for Adolescent and Young Adult Treatment at Cumberland Heights. Additionally, some of proceeds will go toward construction of Cumberland Heightsâ€™ new youth facility, ARCH Academy, to be competed in 2019.
â€œHere Come The Mummiesâ€ (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 atÂ 7:30PM.Â Cumberland Heights will also host a VIP pre-party (ticket details below) for donors fromÂ 5PM to 7PM.
Proceeds of the event support Cumberland Heightsâ€™ adolescent and young adult treatment programsÂ 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.
â€œThe Concert for Cumberland Heights is always very popular with the community and our supporters,â€ said Cumberland Heightsâ€™ Chief Marketing & Development Officer Martha Farabee. â€œThis year is going to be such a blast. â€˜Here Come the Mummiesâ€™ is such a fun band, I predict we will all be out of our seats dancing and singing along for much of the night.â€
Hereâ€™s what â€œHere Come the Mummiesâ€ have to say about themselves: â€œSome say we were cursed. Others claim we are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTMâ€™s mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for â€˜Here Come The Mummies!â€™â€
