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 (and possibly vice versa).

Since their discovery, HCTM has opened for P-Funk, Al Green, 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, Summerfest, and Riverbend; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America. Maybe that’s why the ladies (and some dudes) can’t stop losing their minds over these mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth.

Some say they were cursed after deflowering a great Pharaoh’s daughter. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM’s mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for Here Come The Mummies.

  • HCTM “‘KILLED’ it… Not only did they pack their stage – they were the hit of the night when they jumped on stage with moe. in front of 20,000.” – Jay Goldberg, Summer Camp Music Festival
  • “Here Come The Mummies are one bad-ass band, a hybrid of Idris Muhammad, George Clinton, Ohio Players, and Earth, Wind & Fire.” -Blurt Magazine
  • “A band unlike any other.” -examiner.com
  • “That’s the most fun I’ve had in 20 years.” -Bob Kevoian, The Bob & Tom Show
  • “Cock wobbling brilliant.” -Joe Elliott of Def Leppard

THE FRITZ IS LIVE ROCK.
THE FRITZ IS LIVE FUNK.
THE FRITZ IS LIVE MUSIC.
After five years of traveling the East Coast and steadily building a reputation as a live act not to be missed, Asheville music ambassadors, The Fritz, played a strong year of sets showing thousands of new fans what throngs of Southeastern music lovers have known for years: The Fritz likes to get funky. As much as they take their funk seriously, the band takes it’s rock-honed songwriting just as seriously, but the well crafted song is not the only final product in the live forum.  Individually, the members of The Fritz are masters of improvisation, carefully weaving their personality into each performance.

While the music may range from hard driving soul to progressive rock, a common thread of The Fritz’s passionate energy reigns true in each show.  Whether live or in the studio, the band creates an energetic dance party every time. Their 2013 release, Bootstrap, released positive acclaim around the region. The Fritz brought several unforgettable performances to festivals all over the East Coast. As 2016 rounds to a close, the boys are preparing to enter the studio to record a new album with the help of Dave Brandwein (Turkuaz, The London Souls, Zongo Junction). The Fritz looks forward to a great year in 2017, as they continue to spread the good Fritz gospel of intoxicating live music.

THE FRITZ is:
Jamar Woods – Keyboards, Vocals
Jamie Hendrickson – Guitar, Backup Vocals
Jake O’Connor – Bass, Backup Vocals
Michael Tillis – Drums
Mikey Spice – Percussion
Matt Schueler – Light Designer
