Here Come The Mummies season of freaks
Here Come The Mummies To Manchester Music Hall
I have seen my fair share of shows this year, but none have ever been quite this funky. The first time I heard about Here Come The Mummies, i was unsure how a band in all those bandages could possibly rock, so I had to do my research. Once I dug into iTunes, I found some of the grooviest music I have ever heard, so I knew right away that I needed to see this show for myself. I was truly not let down.
We arrived early for the show and talked to many fans, who came in thralls of all ages. The funk and the groove would be just right for this venue. A perfectly placed and wonderfully ran venue in Lexington, Kentucky.
Even the staff were pumped for the show. The bar staff got people feeling loose as the liquid courage began to flow, much like the funky tunes that would also flow late into the night.
First to the stage was Lexington’s very own and Austin City Star, Avery Glenn Crabtree. Bringing in some serious bluesy and slick guitar skills, not to mention some amazing vocals, Avery Glenn Crabtree got the crowd heated up with his unique and stellar performance, and gained a new fan in me.
This man and his band are ones to watch for!
The time had officially come for the Mummies to arrive. A faint drum line was heard echoing through the halls of Manchester Music Hall and the Mummies made their way through the crowd and to the stage to begin a very saxy performance; one Lexington would soon not forget. Also one I would never forget.
The famous undead musicians began their night with a massive bang. Fans old and young had their freak flags flying high as they were all getting down with the funk. Mummy Midnight drew us all in with smooth notes and groovy singing. Mummy Cass granted us all permission to enter the temple, and we all were grateful because this night would go down in the books much like these undead mummies already have.
Here Come The Mummies jammed the night away with all of the fans favorites, including “Freak Flag” from their 2010 album Carnal Carnival, and my personal favorite “Friction,” from A Blessing And A Curse. The fans were all digging the vibe and hoping to become unwrapped throughout the evening’s festivities of fun and funk. As the show came to an end a few of the members of the band even took the time to say “mmmmm” and “ahhhhhhrrrg” to their die hard fans. One even jumping on top of their merch table to take a few selfies with their fans! It’s quite fitting that this show unraveled its way to Lexington so close to Halloween.
If you have never seen a Mummies show your truly missing out on a show that will leave a huge impression on you. I will definitely try to catch another show with theses undead freaks who know how to get down.
So if you know this band of corpses is playing a city near you, go enjoy some terrifying funk from beyond the grave!
