HISTORY: On 25 August 2006, hundreds of people gathered for the first Project MUM, a unique outdoor dance event under McGrath Highway. A fundraiser for 5 local Somerville arts organizations, MUM06 featured music by DJ Brother Cleve and spectacular lighting (and mirror ball) courtesy of Todd Sargent and the crew at VDA Productions. Did you know the proper name for a disco ball is a mirror ball as they existed long before the advent of disco? The world’s largest mirror ball is in Glasgow, Scotland.
