This chapter describes the origins of the MuzikMafia, which was created in the fall of 2001 by like-minded individuals who come from different backgrounds but whose lives shared similar threads of identity-building experiences. Biographical sketches of MuzikMafia’s founding members (aka godfathers)—Kenny Alphin, Jon Nicholson, Cory Gierman, and John Rich—are provided. The Pub of Love is where the MuzikMafia created its self-described freak show that highlighted social and musical diversity, a place where artists and listeners could be themselves.

Keywords:   musicians, Nashville, founding members, Kenny Alphin, Jon Nicholson, Cory Gierman, John Rich, Pub of Love
