Here Come the Mummies, 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 them (and possibly vice versa). Since their discovery Here Come the Mummies has opened for P-Funk, Al Green, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village 2012; been invited to play Summer Camp Music Fest 2015/16, Musikfest 2016, Summerfest, and Riverbend 2016; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America.

Saturday, August 19: Stage opens at 8:00 p.m.

Clare Dunn earned a name within the songwriting community for having written with highly-regarded songwriters in Nashville and Los Angeles. She is an energetic, guitar-playing country music singer and songwriter from a small farm-town, Two Buttes, Colorado. Dunn made her debut in 2015 and has shared the stage with Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Bob Seger and many more popular artists. She was named one of Rolling Stone's "Best Things We Saw at CMA Music Fest 2015" and her hit "Tuxedo" is currently being played on country radio across the nation.
Trace Adkins' trademark baritone has powered countless hits to the top of the charts and sold over 10 million albums, cumulatively. He recently released a new hit album, "Something's Going On," in March 2017. His hit list includes "You're Gonna Miss This," "Ladies Love Country Boys," "Songs About Me," "Every Light In The House," "Hillbilly Bone (Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins)," and "Just Fishin'," to name a few. The Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is a TV personality, actor, author, spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Program and the American Red Cross, for whom he raised over $1.5 million dollars as winner of NBC's All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. In recent years, Adkins has performed 10 USO Tours.

Grand Funk Railroad is a classic American pop rock band that has experienced just about every facet of the music industry. Rolling Stone magazine once said "You cannot talk about rock in the 1970s without talking about Grand Funk Railroad!" With several top ten hits under their belts, Trails West!® is extremely pleased to bring this high energy five-piece group back to Trails West!®.

Join us Sunday at 12:00 p.m. for fellowship with Stars Go Dim. SGD  creates music that is not only timely but timeless, serving as a reminder of both God's presence in the universe and our ongoing need for it.
