Love, or more aptly, lust was in the air when Here Come The Mummies groaned their way through Valentine’s Day for a crowd of loversÂ that won’t soon forget this fun night of music.
You can always count on Here Come The MummiesÂ for an amazing show. Each time they take the stage, you can expect a show full of exceptional music from well-rounded musicians, larger than life showmanship, and a morning of sore muscles from all the dancing you did during their well-executed set.
This night at YOLO in Fort Wayne, IN was no exception. From the first song,Â the Mummies parade through the crowd to the stage and those in attendance are ready and willing to participate in the funk. Their zeal is contagious and makes you shake things you didn’t know still worked. Is it even possible to not dance when you see a full band dressed as mummies dancing, jumping, and suggestively moving on stage?Â If the crowd on this night was any indication, the answer is no.
Opening for the Mummies was the local act, The Freak Brothers. The Freak Brothers share their own twist on popular dance music as well as coveting a large arsenal of classic funk. They seemed to be a perfect openingÂ act; with their tight horn section and their strong funk sound, they got the crowd pumped and ready for the theatrical set of the Mummies. Their tag line, “If funk was money… The Freak Brothers would be guzillionaires” sums it up perfectly. They have non-stop fun on stage that pours into the crowd.
