"House of Blues"

Nothing could have prepared the Steve-O crazed crowd for the 2000-yearold
funk from beyond the grave that played next. Here Come the Mummies
unwrapped a funktified set that would have given the great Osiris his
groove back. The 10-piece band from Nashville, Tennessee, made the
crowd jump out of their coffins when they graced the stage in their
mummy jumpsuits. Horns a blazing and booties a shaking, the crowd went
wild to one of the most original, fun-loving bands I have ever seen. - Switch Magazine - Andre S. Pope

"Believe in Things you Can Not See"

The mysterious 'Here Come the Mummies' to head up St. Patrick's Day
festivities on River Street Wednesday night.

When KISS painted their faces in black and white makeup, donned Elviralike
wigs and dressed up in outlandish costumes in the '70s, the band
made rock 'n' roll history.
For years, no one knew what they really looked like underneath those
layers of makeup. It was a concept that worked. KISS made millions, and
became a musical classic.
In the decades since, the music world has seen few acts that could
compare in concept.
And then came Here Come The Mummies.
Under wraps
A couple of years ago, a new musical sensation began to reach stages in
and around Nashville, and then beyond.
The nine-member "Here Come the Mummies" band tried out their unique
blend of blues, R&B, funk, soul, disco and rock on audiences.
Almost instantly, they became known for more than just musical talent.
The band performs in full wrap, or rags, to be more specific.
That's because Here Come the Mummies wasn't just some obscure name for
a band that someone dreamed up to sound hip.
They're mummies. Really.
At least according to the writings of Professor Nigel Quentin
Fontenelle Dumblucke IV, who insists that he discovered them during a
1922 archeological in the Egyptian desert south of Tunis.
"In their desperate quest for immortal peace, they rocked all the
ancient empires of Earth down to the ground," Dumblucke is quoted as
saying at "They rocked Atlantis so hard, y'all,
it ain't never been found."
Mum's the word
Which leads us to the question: Just who are these mummies?
No one will tell.
Not even William Garraty, the band's manager.
Sure, there are rumors that the main reason for the wraps is to
disguise the band members, some of whom are actually famous musicians
who would be violating their recording contracts if they were
recognized. There's gossip that many of the other band members are
studio musicians with a secret passion for funk. And the story goes
that several of the core band members are old friends who jammed back
in high school.
But the truth is, they're mummies, Garraty says. Really.
"They're from Memphis, Egypt," he insists.
Rags to riches?
The mummies define themselves as "more undead then Dick Clark, and
cursed with the funk of 5,000 years."
The curse, though, may be a blessing in disguise. The band's popularity
has been growing steadily since they first started playing,
particularly among college students, Garraty said.
They've produced their first CD, aptly named, "Here Come the Mummies."
Their songs have been featured on MTV's television show, "The Real
World." They tour regularly, and have played with the likes of Al Green
and George Clinton.
And they play an occasional wedding gig.
"They're really catching on quite a bit," Garraty said.
Wrapping it up
Wednesday night, the mummies will bring their "terrifying funk from
beyond the grave" to River Street during the St. Patrick's Day on the
River festival. It's the first time the mummies have been in Savannah,
so they're excited, Garraty said.
They promise a bone-shaking show, during which the audience will be
commanded to dance. And they hope their listeners will obey the name of
one of their songs:
"Believe (in Things You Cannot See)." - Savannah Now

"Nuvo Show Review"

Here Come the
Mummies jumped up on stage, and before the crowd knew it, there were
mummies gettin funky everywhere.
Performing tunes including "Ra Ra Ra", "Fenk-Shui", and "Believe (in
things you cannot see)" the octet flawlessly rocked the Patio crowd for
a solid 2 hours. Not only do these guys have it together, but they also
have one hell of a good time doing it, and make that obvious to the
crowd. By the end of the night every person in The Patio was shakin
what their mummy gave them, and having a great time.
Although no one seems to know who they are individually, the scoop I
got on these guys is that they dress up like mummies and sing tunes
about being mummies. No thanking the crowd in between sets, but lots of
mummy- esque groans and grunts of approval. Although we may never know
the identities of H.C.T.M., they are a great band, I don't know when
these guys will be back through town, but I would highly recommend to
anyone to make an effort to go out and get funky with a mummy.

"The show was great, and the kids loved it... They are a great band, and lots of fun." - John Sammons, Lambuth University - Director of Student Activities and Greek Life

Over 5000 years ago, from the dry stretches of the not-so-fertile crescent wandered a nomadic, foul smelling people. A robust, well-endowed, and manly tribe, they were united through ancient rituals involving instruments capable of infinite fonkiness and overt sekshul innuendo. The Pharaoh, a mean mother (shutcho' mouth), hated the nomads and their ability to shred like a mofo all up in that biatch. But more than that, he hated the power of their righteous grooving to make drop the tunics of his five luscious teenage daughters.

One night, the Pharaoh found the nomads dressed as mummies and creating grooves in an effort to compromise the moral integrity of his five daughters. The angry Pharaoh cursed the nomads (already conveniently dressed as mummies) with a spell so vile, that seeing its name in print here would make your eyes melt and flow freely from their sockets. Already doomed, these nomads fled into the night, at last finding refuge in the abandoned caves of the Unleavened Jews. But when the sun rose the following morning, the Pharoah's curse had taken hold, and these were men no more.

For years, scholars of the ancient world wondered what became of this group. Theories citing the Mummies' involvement in historical events from the Siege of Troy to the sacking of Rome, the fall of Pompeii and the sinking of Atlantis were initially scoffed at and dismissed as parlor quackery. However, in 1922, at a dig in the desert south of Tunis, Professor Nigel Quentin Fontenelle Dumblucke IV unearthed the ruins of an ancient discotheque and found a dozen stank-ass fonky mummies still all up in the act of rockin' tha hizouse.
From these mummies, Professor Dumblucke learned of the powerful curse that doomed them to wander the earth throughout eternity, seeking the ultimate riff, the one that would allow these souls to finally rest after 5000 years of banging out solid fly grooves. To quote the Professor: "In their desperate quest for immortal peace, they rocked all the ancient empires of Earth on down to the grizound. They rocked Atlantis so hard, y'all, it ain't never been found".

And now they're coming to rock your town with a funk so strong, it's gonna make all the cats explode. Strap in.
