Asheville, NC-based six-piece dance band Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band is taking their show on the road from July 25 through September 20. Known for their energetic live performances and dance floor heroics, a buzz has been surrounding their sell-out shows and the success of their award winning, 2007 indie debut studio album, “Now You Know.”

“Now You Know,” voted Best Album of 2007 by the Homegrown Music Network, went on to win the “Band of the Year Award” as well. It also charted at #3 for best regional album by WNCW, one of the top Triple A stations in the country.

Using funk as a foundation, the Booty Band weaves elements of hip hop, reggae, ska, and Latin into the mix. In the past few years, the band’s homegrown success has landed them headlining slots at some of the largest festivals, including Wakarusa, Grassroots Festival, Smifest, AMJAM and Jam Cruise 6.

On their current tour, the band will be recording their upcoming performance at Castaway’s in Ithaca, NY for future release on a forthcoming live album, “Greatest Hips Vol. 2,” tentatively scheduled for release this fall.
