When is the last time you saw a group of mummies in concert? Well, there's a first time for everything.

Here Come The Mummies is a band. A group of musicians who play funk, rock, pop and  R&B music... and they do it dressed as mummies. No, I'm not making this up. If you want to see something truly unique, then here's your golden opportunity.

The groups website explains their existence in part, like this...

It’s been a long and dusty road since 1922 when, at a dig in the desert south of Tunis, Professor Nigel Quentin Fontenelle Dumblucke IV (1895-1973) unearthed the ruins of an ancient discotheque to find a dozen undead Egyptian mummies inexplicably throwing down what he dubbed, "Terrifying Funk From Beyond the Grave."

From these hovering souls, who called themselves Here Come The Mummies, Professor Dumblucke learned of the powerful curse that doomed them to wander the earth, seeking the ultimate riff, the one that may allow their spirits to rest after eons of, as they put it, "banging out solid fly grooves, y'all." This so-called curse may have been retribution for the deflowering of a great Pharaoh's daughter, but the story has become somewhat murky over the centuries.

Yeah... you're in for something very different at Boondocks in Springfield, Illinois this Thursday night September 26.
