Get Behind The Mule: The 17th Annual Tom Waits Tribute & Benefit

GET BEHIND THE MULE: the 17th Annual TOM WAITS TRIBUTE & BENEFIT for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle TN music & visual art event will return to The 5 Spot in East Nashville, TN on SAT., DECEMBER 10, 2022.

For the First Time Ever, this Benefit Concert is IN-PERSON and ONLINE!

In December of 2020, the MULE went completely virtual due to the widespread return of Covid.  “This concert brought me as close to that soul quenching, cozy, live music experience I’ve longed for as is possible right now, and I can’t thank you all enough. It was easily worth a thousand dollar donation,” wrote B.H. Thompson, an online attendee at the 15th Get Behind The Mule Tribute + Benefit in response to the live streaming presentation.

Each of the music artists on the bill is invited to play three Tom Waits selections in any fashion or style they choose, some even adopting stage names adopted from Waits’ lyrics.

The 2022 line-up features 11 musical artists, including:
Angel Snow  •  Daniel Lawrence Walker  •  East Kin  •  Irene Kelley  •  Jamison Taylor  •  JP Ringvold & The Rain Dogs  •  Kevin Gordon  •  Linda McRae’s Blue Valentine  •  Molly Martin  •  Sizzle Went The VCR  •  The Volcano Brothers   + Live Painting stage-side with Billy Martinez + Silent Auction

For the sixth year in a row, visual artist Billy Martinez will be “live painting” a Tom Waits image stage-side, with other original artistic creations from award-winning painters Andee Rudloff and Jeff Bertrand, guitar-engraver Mike Lancial, Cigar-Box Guitar creator Jonathan Greiner, and several other items being offered via Silent Auction.

All proceeds from the show and art/silent auction sale will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.  All participants are donating their time in support of helping to feed our hungry neighbors.

The event consistently raises a mighty sum for the Second Harvest Food Bank, a cause you can appreciate whether you’re a devout [Tom] Waits apostle, or you feel like the fan-made video of Cookie Monster synced to ‘God’s Away On Business’ is the only good thing associated with him.”  (Nashville Scene)
