Description

Funk is more than a musical genre, it’s a way of life. And since that mindset is what Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band embodies every day, the collective titled its fourth studio album Funk Life.

Funk Life was conceived in the back seat of a 1972 Impala while listening to a mix tape of P-Funk, Sly and the Family Stone, Buddy Miles, Aretha Franklin, Tower of Power, and James Brown. So pervasive are those influences that the track “Living the Dream” came to keyboardist/vocalist Mary Frances-Mama Funk when, in a sleep-charged vision, George Clinton and Garry Shider of P-Funk taught her the melodic riff.

The band, which formed in Boone in 2002, now Asheville natives, takes its cues from the crowd. "When the ladies are dancing, that's when you know the vibe is right," says Mama Funk. Booty Band focuses on contagious choruses because they believe "When you walk away from a show, you want to remember something." Funk Life’s title track is as much an anthem as a deep groove, at once choreographed and organic. It’s the kind of song that has fans singing along on first listen. During a Booty Band show you might find band members in the crowd, on top of a bar, and definitely in yo face!

True musical road warriors, their live show is an absolute must see! A musical experience rather than simply a band, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band is all facets of funk wrapped into one deliciously deviant package.
