The Southeast's favorite funk institution Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band hits the road with a string of tour dates stopping at Capone's on Saturday January 29th. Known for their off the wall live performances and dance floor heroics, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band has become one of the countries favorite up and coming touring acts, thanks in part to the buzz surrounding their sell-out shows and the success of their award winning and critically acclaimed debut studio album, "Now You Know" (independent release). The Booty Band will be appearing live at Capone's in Johnson City on Saturday, January 29th. This Asheville based six-piece funk monster exerts an undeniable energy - using funk as a foundation, the Booty Band weaves elements of hip-hop, reggae, ska and latin soul into the mix creating a musical entity that is entirely their own. With the addition of Lee Allen (drums) and Mary Frances (keys & vocals), of east coast favorite live electronica touring machine Eymarel (http://www.eymarel.com), Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band has jumped leaps and bounds musically. Simply put, the current Booty Band lineup is not to be missed. Comprised of musicians from all over the US, the Booty Band's unpredictable stage show, constant reshuffling of instruments and crowd rousing antics have helped build the band a loyal following and a strong name for themselves not only in the Southeast but all over the country. In the past few years the Booty Band's success has landed them headlining slots at many major festivals including Wakarusa, Jam Cruise 6, Grassroots, Smilefest, and AmJam to name a few. Wanting to give their fans the live experience to take home with them, the Booty Band released "Greatest Hips Vol. 2" this past summer which contains some of their best recent live performances and truly gives the listener an indication of where the band is going and how they have honed their live show. The band is also currently recording in Miami at DJ Le Spam's studio. The session will be on reel to reel tape. This will be the first official studio recording of the ultimate version of Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band.
