Welcome to Mule Town Records, let me tell you a little bit about us…
Mule Town Records was established in 2009 with the vision of bringing community together through music. With each successful release of a unique 7″ vinyl record featuring a traditional A-Side and B-Side, Mule Town Records was paving the way to help local musicians do what they love!
This passion and drive led to Mule Town Records being asked to provide entertainment to a long standing tradition of throwing a field party during Mule Day weekend; started by a group of friends from Maury County back in the 80’s. As the locations may have changed year to year, the tradition and folks showing you a true “Mule Day Party” did not.
So was born an annual Music Festival known as Mule Day Extravaganza. This festival was focused around the City of Columbia, TN and the popular Columbia tradition Mule Day (see link below) that attracts over 200,000 people and takes place over a week long period.
Mule Day Extravaganza hosted over a thousand people from all over Middle Tennessee as well as other states; and consisted of many different artists performing, food vendors, and camping.
Mule Town Records also contributed to the Southern Fried Festival which was held on the town’s square.
Mule Town Records was purchased in the fall of 2015 by local musician and entrepreneur William Wiesenauer.
After re-branding Mule Town Records, William spent a lot of time networking and developing relationships with others in the industry, supporting local artists as well as local businesses, and attending shows.
William has helped develop singer-songwriter events at a few local businesses; joined the Maury County Fair & Exposition Board as a board member and helps direct their Concert Series.
William welcomed Co-Owner and fellow musician / entrepreneur John Slimak in September 2019.
John has a seasoned background in localized music production, audio engineering, and live event coordination; his strongest driving force in the music industry is providing musicians with resources and outlets, so they can focus on what they do best, making music.
William and John have became involved with events within their community; all while learning, listening to hone their knowledge.
Today- Mule Town Records; a small business in Columbia ,TN specializes in event coordination, event consultation, bookings, and professional entertainment.
