The National Cherry Festival is thrilled to announce that by popular demand, the ever-popular Funk/Rock outfit Here come the Mummies will be playing at the Pepsi Bay Side Music Stage Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, on Sunday, July 1, 2018. “We’re very happy to give in to popular demand and bring Here Come The Mummies back to our big stage for the fourth time in five years” said Kat Paye, Executive Director of the National Cherry Festival. “They’ve become Cherry Festival Favorites and a special favorite among the local folks here in Northwest Michigan.”
Here Come the Mummies is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian Mummies with a one-track mind. Their "Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave" is sure to get you into them. Since their discovery, HCTM has opened for P-Funk, Al Green, Mavis Staples, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village; become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; played massive festivals like Summer Camp, Common Ground, Voodoo Fest, Musikfest, Suwannee Hulaween, and Riverbend; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America.
