Five thousand years old and funky in more ways than one, Here Come the Mummies is a forgotten tribe of raunchy pun lovers out of the distant, dusty past. In an unforgettable stage show, the 13 rag-wrapped, vulgar-minded undead unravel funky jams such as "Bump" and "Carnal Carnival," which weave innuendo with tales of characters such as the boogeyman and a hot-dog vendor. Other songs include "Libido Knievel" about a lascivious daredevil and "Dirty Minds," a confession about the gutter-bound thoughts of the band set to a mambo-paced rhythm. Perhaps the most thrilling portion of any Here Come the Mummies concert occurs when the band breaks out its trademark cowbelts—one-of-a-kind pelvic bells played with hip thrusts.
With two stories, four bars, a massive soundboard, and 12,600 square feet of room for music to roam, the entertainment complex of Mojoes polishes sonic heirlooms and gives fans breathing room for full-lunged sing-alongs. Polished hardwood floors accentuate a cozy, couch-laden lounge area—a decided class that extends to the concert area in the form of a giant chandelier hanging overhead.
