Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band

The Orange Peel will host funk band Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band at 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 29 at 101 Biltmore Ave.

Funk is more than a musical genre, it’s a way of life. And since that mindset is what Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band embodies every day, the collective titled its fourth studio album Funk Life.

The new record is as sassy and self-possessed as lead track “24/7,” a fearless plunge into contagious rhythms and bold horn hits. Recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in the Booty Band’s hometown, Asheville, Funk Life paired the musicians with engineer Julian Dreyer(Band of Horses, Avett Brothers, Zac Brown Band).

The band was still arranging a couple of songs when tracking began, leaving room for the element of surprise. That spirit of excitement is captured on tracks like “Quick E,” an instrumental with plenty of swagger and vintage cool; the bold, woman-power manifesto “Mama Feelgood,” originally recorded by Lyn Collins; and “Wake Yo’Self,” a caffeinated dance track that builds to a keys-driven crescendo.
