Center Stage Series with Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Ironing Board Sam

When: Fri., June 7, 6-9 p.m. 2013

Asheville funk troupe Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band brings progressive party tunes to WUNC's Back Porch Music series. Futuristic synths, swaggering horns and shouted group vocals pour over propulsive grooves. The crew balances untamed originals that weld rock, R&B and funk with covers ranging from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Ol' Dirty Bastard to Allen Toussaint, Rage Against the Machine and The Doors. Music Maker recording artist and septuagenarian showman Ironing Board Sam opens with his band, performing boogie-woogie piano numbers and soulful blues standards. His inspiring energy is that of someone decades younger. —Spencer Griffith
