HERE COME THE MUMMIES
What surely started as a Halloween joke, or something goofy a group of musician friends did for kicks in the early ’00s, has proven to not just have legs, but kick ass on a musical level… with or without the shctik. Here Come The Mummies have always had a rotating lineup, of up to eleven musicians (none of which have ever been unmasked), and their mummified funk, rock and blues is no laughing matter. With so much mystery behind a band, it’s always fun to dig for clues. We do know they’re based in Nashville, possibly under contract studio musicians, who have to hide their identities to keep from the breaking the “rules,” but that’s about it. It’s also rumored that there are several Grammy winners and possibly even a really high profile name or two, among the undead. Best part? You can download their entire catalog for free at their website. For now, have a taste below, and don’t miss what promises to be one of the best Halloween throwdowns in all of Music City!
Here Come The Mummies will perform Halloween night, Saturday, Oct. 31 at Marathon Music Works. The show is 18+, begins at at 9 p.m. (doors at 8 p.m.), and tickets are available for $30-$35.
