Muzik Mafia takes over music scene

By Diana Ashjian
October 7, 2004, a pioneering website available for aspiring artists and fans, has been snatching up the spotlight these days one hit at a time. Here, MAFIA is pneumonic for Musically Artistic Friends In Alliance, and is straight out of Nashville, Tenn. Muzik Mafia is an underground organization that exists to entertain the general public, as well as to expose new talent. According to its’ founders, Cory Gierman, Big Kenny, John Rich and Jon Nicholson, “The purpose of the MuzikMafia is to advance the acceleration of greatness in music by combining creative peoples in a loving non-territorial celebratory environment of total respect and acceptance regardless of genre or format of musical style. Simply, we get together, play music, make art and have fun without limits.”

Since its launch into the music scene in Oct. 2001, Mafia has done just that by exposing us to the likes of Gretchen Wilson and her number one hit song, “Redneck Woman,” off of her debut album, “Here for the Party.” Also, founders Big and Rich have collaborated to form Big & Rich and created their own fun-loving album, “Horse of a Different Color.” Joining Wilson and Big & Rich as buoyant advocates of MuzikMafia are some other favored and famed crooners, such as Kid Rock, Tim McGraw, Puddle of Mud’s Wes Scantlin and Martina McBride.

However, you don’t have to sign up for line dancing or bull riding lessons just yet to share in fun and festivities because Muzik Mafia is spellbound by much more than just country inspired melodies. Music discovered in the world of Muzik Mafia is comparable to anything from hip-hop to rock and somehow prodigiously jumbled up with the harmonicas and guitars that are country.

With the ever growing expansion and popularity of Muzik Mafia, expect to learn of fresh new faces who belt out inspiring lyrics with the best of ’em. Through reciprocity as a recipe for promoting and an enthusiastic genre jumping style that knows no boundaries, the “godfathers” Big, Rich, Nicholson and Gierman comprise the kind of potential that only star quality can boast.

However, modesty is key for Nashville, as we’ve seen with artists like Johnny Cash and Tug McGraw who both exuded that country charm. Tuesdays in Bluesboro, Nashville, Tenn. are bound to be a phenomenon and you can bet your bottom dollar on that one. Just wait and see.
