Crazy Mama's started almost 31 years ago

In December, 1979 Crazy Mama's opened as Columbus's defacto New-Wave nite club. It was a second floor bar on the southern edge of the south campus bar area. It was the first to show music videos on multiple monitors at a time before VHS cassettes. It hired DJ's like the fading disco club scene, but was opened to all of rock and roll, past and future. It was a small venue for bands, but members of local new-wave bands became the regular customers.
