Fresh out of the tomb and ready to get funky, Here Come the Mummies (literally, mummies) shamble and bounce into action. With six studio albums under their wraps, and maybe even a few Grammys, these guys are (un)deadly with their instruments. With a legendary brass section and swing sound the Mummies will have you dancing in the aisles. Combine a “lively” stage presence with extraordinary talent, and you’ve got a performance fit for everyone to get down.

Complete with their very own tap dancer, this is straight-up, foot-stomping jazz! Get dolled up, find something bootlegged, grab a partner and get swinging with The Hot Sardines.
