Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band is a seasoned group of musicians, who have taken their high energy, Funk filled live stage show back and forth across the country, performing in 49 of the 50 US states since they first hit the scene, back in 2002. The band was conceived in Boone, NC and quickly gained a cult following for their wildly entertaining and “over the top” stage antics. In 2006, Booty Band, as fans affectionately nicknamed the group, moved to Asheville, North Carolina, and have since become the poster child for the Asheville Music scene. The band has released 4 studio albums, 2 live albums and 1 remix album over the span of their career and recently received the honor of being featured artists on a Grammy Winning Album “Infinity Plus One” from “Kid-Hop” artist Secret Agent 23 Skidoo. These road warriors have stripped layers of varnish off many dance floors, laid down immeasurable amounts of rubber on the pavement and have left fans all over the country with memories that will last a lifetime.
Growing up in the small town of Benson, North Carolina, Rebekah Todd has been surrounded by music for as long as she can remember. At the young age of 11, Rebekah’s father (a musician himself) gave her a black acoustic Washburn guitar and taught her to play. Flooding the house with sounds of classic rock and folk, her father played everything from Pink Floyd to the Righteous Brothers, leading Rebekah to instantly find her musical niche somewhere between melodic soul and alternative folk rock. Growing into her soulful voice and musical style, the singer-songwriter started to pull inspiration from a wide range of musical genres, citing passionate singer/songwriters like Lauryn Hill and Susan Tedeschi as the inspirations that shape the music she writes and performs today. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from East Carolina University in 2012, Rebekah has been devoting her life to writing and touring.
Currently based in Murphy, North Carolina, Rebekah is a gifted performer with a natural, soulful and powerful voice. She has three releases under her belt; her debut EP Forget Me Not (2011), her first LP Roots Bury Deep (2014) and most recent LP Crooked Lines (2017). Todd has received countless awards and recognition including 2013 Carolina Music Awards “Best Female Musician,” 2016 winner of Floyd Fest “On The Rise” Competition, 2017 Wilma Magazine’s Women to Watch, 2018 Encore Magazine’s “Best Female Musician” and much more. Todd is currently recording a new album set to be released and toured with her full band in 2022.
