DIXON – Here Come the Mummies, the Nashville-based funk/R&B band that played a sold-out show in September 2013, are coming back to play at 8 p.m. May 3 at the Historic Dixon Theatre, 114 S. Galena Ave.

“The Mummies blew the crowd away last fall,” Josh Albrecht, executive director of Dixon Main Street said in a news release. “So we knew we had to bring them back when the date opened up on their tour schedule.”

General admission tickets go on sale at noon Friday and are $20. Tickets are general admission and are available at www.dixontheatre.com, or at Trein’s Jewelry and Venier Jewelers in downtown Dixon. To order by phone, call Dixon Main Street at 815-288-2308.

“We strongly recommend not waiting to get your tickets for this show. The Mummies are a band not to be missed,” Albrecht said in a news release. 

The band has been touring since 2002, in full mummy attire, throughout the country. They have been featured on the Bob & Tom Show, in Hollywood productions, and have been headlining festivals and fairs all across the Midwest and beyond. 

The true identities of the band are literally shrouded in secret, but if rumors are true, the band is made up of numerous Grammy Award-winning musicians. The costumes are believed to be used to hide any contract disputes with their music labels.

For more information, call Dixon Main Street at 815-288-2308.
