Tuff Mama was formed in November 2004 by a group of local musicians with one goal: To play a different flavor of Rhythm & Blues than typically found in the San Francisco Bay Area. We were tired of hearing the same tunes played the same way year after year and we wanted to be a catalyst for change in the Bay Area Music scene. The result was the beginnings of Tuff Mama. Debra & Howard started searching the bay area for like minded musicians and within six weeks held their first rehearsal. Our members had been a part of numerous bands in the bay area since the 1970’s and have now joined together to bring their musical resumes to the public as Tuff Mama.
Tuff Mama is 3 lead vocals, keyboards, lead/rhythm & bass guitar & drums. We finished our first CD in late May 2005 and are currently working on our next CD which is scheduled for release in April 2007. Since 2005 we have brought our show to many venues in the SF Bay area. Tuff Mama is available for every type of function. From wedding receptions and private parties to corporate events and night clubs we are prepared to make your event one that you remember for years to come.
The tunes we cover range from hits by Sam & Dave, The Beatles, Linda Ronstadt and Jackie Wilson to The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Boz Scaggs, Tina Turner, Steve Winwood and Grand Funk Railroad. We play the blues, Motown, Philly Soul and Stax era tunes and we can rock ‘n roll with the best.
We are adding new tunes every week to our song list with the determination not to become just another boring band.
