Performing Live! Here Come the Mummies at Le Poisson Rouge, NY Sept 15 2019
Review & pictures by Mark Ashe

Here Come The Mummies invaded the intimate (Le) Poisson Rouge on September 15th, with a well-attended stop on their current, seemingly never ending tour.  According to their bio, HCTM is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian Mummies with a one-track mind. Their “Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave” is sure to get you into them (and possibly vice versa). They certainly made good on this claim, seeming to have as much fun as the audience, whooping it up and throwing out t-shirts to the ecstatic crowd.

From the opening number where the Mummies march through the audience, each with a drum, like a school marching band at a halftime football game, to the glorious last sweat soaked song, Here Come The Mummies plays its own brand of funk that is danceable and engaging, and 100% original. There’s a four-piece horn section, two keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, talk box, and multiple singers ganging up on seriously innuendo-laden word-play.  

Here Come The Mummies are fresh off their virgin Canadian run, which featured a well-attended show in Toronto at Lee’s Palace, as well as a face-melting alien-spaceship type sighting in Montreal.

Be sure to see this band if you like Funk, love to dance and want to have a great time!
