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 Here Come The Mummies has opened for P-Funk, Al Green, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village 2012; become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; been invited to play Summer Camp Music Fest 2015/16, Common Ground 2015, Voodoo Fest 2015, Musikfest 2016, Summerfest, and Riverbend 2016; 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.
Opening for Here Come the Mummies is Peelander-Z. Peelander-Z is a Japanese band based in New York City. They bill themselves as a "Japanese Action Comic Punk band hailing from the Z area of Planet Peelander". They perform on stage and appear in color-coordinated costumes, which they state are not costumes, but their skin. The costumes range from sentai style suits, to kimono, to rubber Playmobil style wigs.

The Purdue Club of Elkhart County Foundation is excited to once again be bringing the world-famous Purdue Varsity Glee Club to The Lerner Theater on October 23. This is the major fund-raiser of the Foundation, so that scholarships can be awarded to students from Elkhart County who are attending Purdue University, with most recently over $23,000 being awarded to qualified students. Recent Elkhart county graduates of Goshen High School (Joel Byler) and Fairfield (Austin Erb) are current members and featured soloists of the Glee Club. A dynamic program of music of all types will be presented, but audiences are continually amazed that Purdue does not have a School of Music - Glee Club members major in all types of challenging academics including engineering, pharmacy, education, agriculture, business, etc. Joining the Glee Club on stage this year will be the award-winning mixed show-choir from Fairfield High School - Fusion. This will be an afternoon you won't want to miss.

The Lerner's Silent Movie Experience series returns for its third season, celebrating Hollywood's best actors, director and stories. The classic films are only half the show, though, as the events showcase the theatre's original and restored 1924 Kimball pipe organ. With professional organists providing the score, the sound surrounds the audience for a truly unique experience.
Hunchback is a huge production: the sets depicting 15th century century Paris covered nineteen acres of Universal Pictures’ backlot and included the facade of Notre Dame Cathedral. Filming took six months and the climactic sequence employed two thousand extras, but it’s Lon Chaney’s performance as the iconic Quasimodo that makes the character unforgettable. Featuring organist Brett Valliant.

When The Eagles stopped to catch their breath a few decades ago, having sold over 100 million records, collected six Grammy’s, and enjoyed six #1 albums, Hotel California began a pioneering journey through their history-making music that has taken them around the globe and thrilled hundreds of thousands of Eagles fans. It’s been a journey they could never have imagined back in 1986, but their dedication, unique musical gifts, and an obsessive commitment to doing this legendary music true justice in performance, set them apart from the many Eagles bands that came after them. Hotel California toured relentlessly from the 80’s straight through to today, setting the standard for world-class tribute productions as they went, and sharing stages with the likes of The Doobie Bros., Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gretchen Wilson, REO Speedwagon, and many more. From Japan to Dubai, Toronto to Texas, Hotel California has boldly taken the tribute band where none had gone before them, and changed an industry’s collective mind about how good a “tribute” band could really be.
Today Hotel California continues to tour internationally, and their stage show has evolved into one of the most impressive and popular productions on the North American soft-seat and festival circuits. Featuring original members within their strongest lineup to date, the band is enjoying what they do today more than ever – and it sure sounds like it! It won’t take you long to hear why legions of Eagles fans come back to see them time after time, and the top venues & festivals have them back again and again. The easy-going warmth that comes from the band onstage exemplifies the Southern California sound of the 1970’s. The experience of a Hotel California show isn’t just about the band – it’s about celebrating the music and the memories, and the band gets the audiences involved and on their feet! Close your eyes and you’re right back there…
For any band to continually exceed such high expectations this deep into their career, and remain at the top of their field for as long as Hotel California have, is a truly remarkable accomplishment. That’s why when top talent buyers need the proven, absolute highest quality Eagles show in the world, they book the original Hotel California year after year. – Steve Birnstihl, CTA Tributes
The members of Hotel California have also performed in many other touring bands, such as The Guess Who, April Wine, Glass Tiger, Coney Hatch, and Foot In Cold Water.
