Concert for Cumberland Heights
116 5th Ave N | Get Directions
The Concert for Cumberland Heights on October 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 7:30 p.m. Cumberland Heights will also host a VIP pre-party for donors from 5 - 7 p.m.
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.
