booty bandThe Sheridan Arts Foundation gets funky on Thursday, March 7, 2013, (doors open, 7:30 p.m., show, 8 p.m.), when  Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band raises the roof of the historic Sheridan Opera House.

Deeply rooted in funk and fully committed to the ongoing evolution of the genre, the Booty Band has a unique sound with the power and soul to create lasting melodies and seismic rhythms in one memorable musical moment.

Formed in 2002, the group has averaged more than 150 shows per year for more than a decade. Each performance is a high energy musical and visual experience that leaves crowds all across the country breathless. With their eccentric outfits and animated stage presence each musician exudes expertise and artfulness while performing at some of the nations hottest festivals: Wakarusa, Jam Cruise, Deluna Fest and Telluride Blues & Brews Festival  – and with some of funk’s legendary names including George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Galactic, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Soul Asylum and MC Hammer.

With a new album in the works at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC (projected release date: March 27, 2013), a new remix album entitled Re-Doin’ It Hard, which debuted in fall 2012, and tour in full swing, these are certainly artists to watch.

The Booty Band’s current winter/spring tour schedule is taking them through the South, the North and even out to the Midwest. Excited to play anywhere from intimate venues to large clubs and dance halls, the Booty Band strives to continually support and entertain their ever-widening fan base, while still finding time to have fun together. Some of their off time on tours have included dog sledding, car bowlin’, and hiking parts of the Grand Canyon. Revelation Bowl? Time will tell.

Doin’ It Hard, their sophomore studio release, is a reflection of the Booty Band’s approach to music, touring, performing, and to life in general. Recorded at City of Progress Studios in Miami, FL under the cultivated ear of DJ leSpam, Doin’ It Hard is Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band. Next-generation, redefined for a new decade.
