Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band wsg. The Queen's Guard
@Visulite Theatre

Funk has a new spokes band, and that band is Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band. Known for their raucous live shows, the Booty Band’s sound is a mix of deep funk, high energy rock, plus a little old school soul thrown in for good measure.
Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band formed in 2002 and went through a few incarnations before culminating into the dynamic ensemble it is today. Mary Frances “Mama Funk” creates a sultry platform for her keyboard and keytar playing with her powerhouse vocals. Laying down the horns are Derrick Johnson and Jonathan Cole on trombone and sax. JP Miller soars on guitar, Ben Bjorlie lays down the bottom on bass, and Lee Allen drives it all forward on drums. The 6 piece funk outfit fuels their show with original compositions, triumphant horns, laid-back grooves and heavy backbeats.

Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band has rubbed elbows on stage with classic purveyors of the funk like Parliament Funkadelic, Galactic, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Maceo Parker and Bootsy Collins and have ventured into new territory with modern funksters The New Mastersounds and Orgone.
Never abandoning the call of duty, Booty Band is spreading the gospel of funk throughout the country by playing an average of 150 shows per year. They have proven themselves to be a staple in the live music festival circuit by whipping fans into dancing frenzies at Wakarusa, Bear Creek, Jam Cruise, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, Aura Fest, Floyd Fest, DeLuna Festival, Jazz Aspen, Center of the Universe Festival, Purple Hatters Ball, Camp Barefoot, Trinumeral and more. For years the Booty Band has been a mainstay at their hometown’s Bele Chere Festival, the largest free outdoor festival in the Southeast that’s historically drawn over 350,000 attendees.

The Queens Guard
Start Time: 8:00
A community of artists seasoned in the Gospel, R&B and Funk scenes across the country, led by the inspiring and dynamic vocal stylings of Blanche J-this is The Queen's Guard. Playing together for years in various contexts, the members formally branded themselves as The Queen's Guard in early 2016, debuting to a deafening, sold out audience at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, NC. While members of the community have worked with and been featured alongside influential artists such as George Clinton, Anthony Hamilton, Roy Ayers, Kirk Franklin and Chantae Cann, the musical rhapsody of their debut propelled them to emerge beyond the local music scene; welcome to the Queen's court, we hope you enjoy yourselves.
