“Come Alive” with Here Come The Mummies at Seminole Casino Immokalee
– “Come Alive” with Here Come The Mummies at Seminole Casino Immokalee on Saturday, October 12 at 8 p.m. The band’s music has never been more alive, so get ready to rock like an Egyptian! Tickets are on sale on Monday, August 12. While there are plenty of funk bands alive and kicking, there’s only one that’s made up entirely of Egyptian mummies, that being Nashville, Tennessee’s Here Come the Mummies. Careful to keep their identities under wraps, the band performs their funk/R&B jams completely wrapped up while using aliases like Eddie Mummy, Java, K.W. Tut, Mummy Cass, Spaz, The Pole, Midnight, Mummy Rah and The Flu. The mummies rose from their collective graves in 2002 with their debut album, Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave, which was followed shortly afterwards by 2003’s Everlasting Party. The band returned in 2008 with Single Entendre, as well as a live DVD, Undead Live, in 2009. The fourth album, Carnal Carnival, arrived the following year, kicking off a steady stream of releases including 2011’s Bed, Bath & Behind, 2012’s Hits & Mrs. and 2013’s Cryptic. From the thunderous opening chords of "You Know The Drill," to the romantic intonations of "Never Grow Old," the Cryptic album is full off funky hits. The life-of-the-party band has opened for P-Funk and Al Green, rocked Super Bowl Village 2012 and have played massive festivals like Summerfest. General admission tickets are $30 in advance and $35 the day of the show. Must be 21 years of age or older. To purchase tickets, call 1 (800) 218-0007 or visit the Cashier.
