Here Come the Mummies at the Historic Dixon Theatre
The Nashville-based funk/R&B band, Here Come the Mummies, is touring in full mummy attire. They have been featured on the Bob & Tom Show, in Hollywood productions, and, of course, headlining festivals and fairs all across the Midwest and beyond. The true identities of the band are literally shrouded in secret, but if rumors are true, the band is made up of numerous Grammy Award-winning musicians. The mummified get-up is believed to be used to hide any contract disputes with their music labels. The high-energy show is a performance that will bring the audience to their feet for a night of dancing and good vibes.
