Over the years, I have found many new bands but none have been quite as impressive as the 5000-year-old funk band from beyond the tomb, Here Come The Mummies. Every member of this band has personality and amazing stage presence. Together they put on a performance that is riveting and dripping with sexuality.
HCTM is one of the funkiest bands I have ever seen in my entire life. They are the perfect blend of mythology and music, sex and funk. Some of the members are said to be, Grammy award-winning musicians and their identities are completely hidden from the public, under wraps, so to speak. This mysterious persona is only enhanced when you realize what a talented group of musicians these mummies are.
From on point-funky vocals, lead guitar and electric keyboard solos; too amazing saxophonists, Here Come The Mummies has it all. I was most impressed when the sax players wielded two saxophones each and at the same time, began soloing and dueling each other, in some otherworldly cataclysmic reaction. This band is no joke and even though all of their songs include some sort of sexual innuendo, they never come off as cheesy or overdone.
HCTM was one of the best performances I have seen all year. One of the mummies even came out into audience and was climbing all over everything, hitting on the girls, acting wild. I would totally pay the $50 price of admission again, because this band is well worth it. I would love to see HCTM added to more Jam festivals and larger venues. They recently played Hulaween this past month and have also joined moe. on stage at a past Gathering Of The Vibes festival. If you haven't heard of HCTM, I recommend checking out this video below.
