Egyptian burial traditions and funk music are rarely mentioned in the same breath, but in the past 15 years, Here Come The Mummies have wrapped themselves in greasy grooves and irresistible rhythms that have stirred the souls and feet of concertgoers from the band’s home base in Nashville to all lands within the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Unlike most of their ancient predecessors, the true identity of the funk-driven, hard-gigging, Mummies remained buried behind hipster, cryptic monikers, including Professor Dumblucke, Eddie Mummy, Java, K.W. Tut, Mummy Cass, Spaz, The Pole, Midnight, Mummy Rah and The Flu. Rumor has that prominent session players and music industry hotshots from the Music City comprise the band’s 10 members, but their identities remain, well … under wraps.
HCTM has opened for Al Green and appeared at Super Bowl Village, Summerfest, and the 2013 Oaks and Smokes Derby throwdown. PBS is spotlighting the band during its third season of Front And Center. In June, HCTM dropped its latest free EP, Pull It Off.
