Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band

BandRockFunk

The Booty Band carries the truly liberating experience of Funk Music through the burgeoning years of our fresh Millenium via original composition and powerful delivery of Nu Funk music. Horn driven, bass & drum powered, rhythm suspension, occasional vocal navigation, no brakes. Let's hit the road.

Biography

The members of Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band hail from across the Eastern seaboard, eventually culminating in 2002 in the rugged mountains of Western North Carolina; Boone, NC. The band currently resides in Asheville, NC.

Gregbob “Rescue in the Night” Hollowell, from Connecticut and Michigan, is in charge of melodical explosions on the saxophones. When his hands are free, you may see Greg morph into the entity known as “Bongo Fury” or summon voices of various guest characters that he channels through the vocal chords. His partner in crime, the other half of the Asheville Horns, Derrick “Juices and Berries” Johnson, blows furious funk and cool jazz tones from the bell of his trombone. You can always expect to see Derrick engaging our friends in the audience and occasionally strumming the electric guitar, bringing the room to a warm, fuzzy whirlpool of emotions known as “Jazz Odyssey.” Speaking of electric things, J.P. “Smoke Machine” Miller, a recovering Florida beach freak, takes control of most guitar associated sounds, while hopping on the mic or blazing trails through the ether with nasty synth and keyboard sounds. Al Al “Sweet Nasty” Ingram, originally from Laurinburg, NC, is in charge of funky threads and all frequencies below the waist. Al Al will not respond to “Hey Bootsy,” but he will sing his heart out right into yours, while communicating directly with your hips via thick bass lines. If you find yourself tapping your feet while waiting for a drink at the bar, chances are that it’s because of this guy: Lee Allen. Also from the LBG, NC, Lee is one half of the power house duo, Eymarel, that the Booty Band recently absorbed. The other half of the new addition to our wonderfully motley crew is Mary “Nuke ‘em” Frances. Originally from Southern Virginia, Sister Mary holds down the heavy end of the keys, organs and synths, while pleasing the crowds with sensational vocals. Behold the glory!
