    #71 Live Shows-Your opinion
    There's always plenty of discussion about the health of live music and its venues. Any town's music scene will have some ebb and flow, certainly. I asked folks on Facebook and Instagram to opine about what makes them decide to go or not go to a live show. Is it venue? Start time? End time? Price? The acts themselves? Quality of publicity? Some combination of all these. We talked about their responses, and gave some thoughts of our own directed to venues, acts, and the General Public. We

    #70 No Time To Hate
    Recently in Lafayette IN (home of our podcast), racial tensions flared due to separate events. There was angry debate, along with substantive discussions. Hate groups had posted racist signs and flyers in prominent places, and two groups were booked to appear locally that many believed to be racist performers. To counter all that, a group of musicians have decided to perform in a show called "No Time To Hate" at the Lafayette Theater.   We spoke to one of those performers, Christopher Lee from

    #69 "Nine Hours" with Jason Wells
    Jason Wells is a guitar phenom who has been taking his music around the country for several years now. He's brought all that experience, along with three other superb musicians to his new release "Nine Hours". Wells intended for this album to sound like a spontaneous jam feel, and he hit the target. Varied in style, but never lacking intensity, 9 Hours is a piece of work the author can be proud of.  We discussed the album-making experience and got a sense of Jason's intentions for the album. I

    Mumcast 67 Jason Wells' Big Show
    Jason Wells plays the blues and rock, sells his own coffee blend, runs an open mic night, and generally works his butt off. Which is good for you, since you can see the fruits of his labor on stages across America, and in Lafayette IN on 12/30. His band will perform at the Lafayette Theater with a local band called Graciously Departed (a nice dose of Dead!), and up-and-coming singer songwriter Tara Marlow.  The show will start with Marlow's acoustic music, follwed by the GP and their happy set,

    Pepper Wrap and the LSG
    ​ This episode, we spoke to Brittany and Hans Rees of the band Frank Muffin, following their triumphant show at the Lafayette Theater: Sgt. Pepper in its entirety, with 22-piece orchestra. They talked about their view of how things went, the money made for charity, and what might be their next big show.   We also spoke to Jeff Lagaveen of Lafayette Super Group about their upcoming benefit show, a benefit for a friend of Jeff's (details in the podcast). We talked about the LSG, basically a music

    Mumcast 65 Frank Muffin's Sgt Pepper
    In 1967, we opened our new copy of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", expecting something brilliant and groundbreaking. Turned out to be much more, as Pepper became one of the most influential albums, not only in the Beatles' canon, but in all of contemporary music.  Members of local Lafayette band Frank Muffin, along with 20 musicians from the community and elsewhere, will be staging that album from start to finish, with extras, December 9, at Lafayette Theater. It's a

    Mumcast 62 Mosey Down Main
    Mosey Down Main Street is a music festival that happens throughout the summer in downtown Lafayette Indiana. It has become a perfect example of how the right planning and a willing community of store owners, vendors, and musicians working together to make something unique. The vibe at the Mosey is excellent, which is a big draw for the event. You can wander (or mosey) down Main, get a bite to eat, and hear good bands on 3 different stages. And the musicians are mostly local, which is another

    Mumcast 60-Three Cities Keeping Rock Fun
    Three Cities is a band on a mission to keep the fun in hard rock. We spoke to Patrick Barry Brown, guitarist for this rock band whose members hail from Indy, Fort Wayne, and Marion, IN. They recorded a live set in May at the Lafayette Theater, in Lafayette, IN. The theater is a beautifully renovated and expertly run music venue that was once an Art Deco style movie theater.    Three Cities' "Live from Lafayette" release consists of a few favorite originals from their previous sets, along with

    Mumcast 59 Bye Bye Becker/Mungion Update
    This Labor Day weekend included a tragic loss for the music community. Walter Becker, one half of Steely Dan, died at age 67. The Dan have influenced legions of musicians with their potent mix of jazz, rock, and r&b influences, not to mention the sardonic wit and their brainy, sometimes obtuse take on songwriting. Their music isn't for everyone, a big reason why those who get them love their ethos. We read an excerpt of Rob Sheffield's Rolling Stone article on Walter, which describes and sums up

    Mumcast 13- If Ya Wanna Make $1 mil in Music, Start With $2 mil
    On the most recent episode of Mumcast: The Rick Mummey Show, we interviewed journalist/musician Tim Brouk, formerly a writer at the Lafayette Journal and Courier, who now writes for media portal Thinklafayette.com, where he tackles subjects of local and universal interest.

    Your Favorite Show, My Favorite Show
    We asked people to contribute to Mumcast: The Rick Mummey Podcast by telling us about their favorite concert going experiences. These events often carry great memories for us, and bring us closer to the artists that bowl us over with skill, charm, and, sometimes, spectacle. Sometimes they're a rite of passage, when your parents loosened up enough to let you go, even though they were afraid (or certain) that you might descend into depravity. Regardless of genre or era, the concerts described by

    Post #1: WHY ARE WE HERE, ANYWAY?
    I guess I'm challenging myself with such a deep topic for my inaugural post. I choose the question because it dovetails nicely with my mission to tease out the motivations and inspirations from creative people. Why do they create? Why must they create? Many creatives with whom I've spoken tell me that making their art is as central to their existence as breathing and eating (for many artists, creating may be more important than eating, since eating requires what many artists find to be in short
