Fresh from pulling off a hat-trick of prestigious music awards, namely
The Home Grown Music Awards #1 New Band of the Year Award, The Home
Grown Music Awards Studio Album of the Year, and, last but not least,
fittingly named by The Onion as having one of The Worst Band Names of
the year, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band is poised to blow the doors off the
Green Parrot on Friday and Saturday night, June 25th and 26th, with shows at 5:30 and 10 P.M.
This seven-piece from Asheville, NC mix triumphant horns, laid-back
grooves, and heavy backbeats to encompass many styles of music that
can only be described as one… Bounce Music. The swarms of swaying
bodies at their shows testify to their thick thump and boundless
energy. The Booty Band cuts to the core of what great live music is
all about: having fun and feeling good. Their energy is contagious and
instantly transforms the average night out into an evening to
remember. They’re quickly becoming the hottest new band on the
jam/funk circuit, adding colorful costumes and an interactive stage
personality to make everyone in the room feel right at home. They are
the Booty Band, and they like to put the Live back into Live music!
*For the latter half of June, the Booty Band will be down in Florida recording their new album with DJ Le Spam in his studio in Miami. This will be the first studio album since 2007’s “Now You Know” was released. It will include newest Booty Band members Lee Allen on drums and Mary Frances on vocals and keys from the band Eymarel.Much of the album will be recorded right to tape (reel to reel) to utilize some of the ol’ school recording techniques. The band expects a late Fall/early Winter release.
