Here Come the Mummies moaned and groaned their way into October with a free, all ages, packed show at the Dekalb County Fair.
Seeing Here Come The Mummies is an experience that is hard to forget. This group of expert musicians put on a theatrical, humorous and entertaining show each time they hit the stage, and this night was no exception. Â A large crowd gathered at the fair stageÂ and was not disappointed. The excitement and energy that the mummies send out to the crowd is infectious. Fans, old and young alike, obviously enjoyed the show evidenced by the singing, clapping and dancing. It is apparently impossible to see Here Come The Mummies and stand still.
Java Mummy, percussion and vocals, announced in September that after this round of touring, he will be leaving Here Come The Mummies so local fans made certain to see Java in this area one last time. HisÂ pelvicÂ gyrating, huge bright smile and his entertaining innuendos will definitely be missed by the fans. Java worked hard this night to entertain fans who came from several states to see this show.
Fort Wayne Funk Orchestra opened the evening. Their mix of funk, rap, hip hop and soul was well received as the crowd grew for Here Come The Mummies. Bringing covers from the 70s to today and a growing repertoire of originals, Fort Wayne Funk Orchestra is taking Fort Wayne by storm evidenced by the crowds response as well as taking home 5 local awards fromÂ Whatzup magazine readers recently.
