Here Come the Mummies
May 12, 2021
Zombies might have the cultural spotlight, but the members of the world’s oldest band are here to remind you that mummies are the OG undead.
It’s been a long road since a 1922 desert dig unearthed the ruins of an ancient discotheque and revealed a bunch of Egyptian mummies throwing down “Terrifying Funk From Beyond the Grave.” Here Come the Mummies are reportedly doomed to walk the Earth in search of the ultimate riff that will finally allow their spirits to rest.
HCTM will claim the title of “kings of the undead” when they storm the stage at the 13-24 Drive-In in Wabash on May 20. Armed with guitars, horns, drums, sticks, and a mean setlist of songs, they owe much of their popularity to the “Bob & Tom Show,” centuries of hard work, and one of the deadliest live shows you’re likely to ever see and, hopefully, live to tell about.
While their real identities remain under wraps (ha!), these ancient musicians are rumored to be world-class performers who simply want to remain anonymous, dress in cloth, and play music like their heroes. These include legends like Sly Stone, James Brown, Ray Charles, and Billy Preston.
Over the past 20 years, they have delivered ten full-length studio albums rife with comedic lyrics, double entendres, and suggestive innuendos,. They are a perfect fit for audiences looking for a night full of fun, laughs, surprises, and terrifying grooves.
