Booty Band Land This Weekend w/ Yo Mama's, Donna


nice booty…
Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band will be hosting their first full festival this weekend, September 24-27 at the Sneedville Yacht Club Ranch in Sneedville, TN (120 Miles from Asheville, NC and 70 miles from Knoxville, TN). The festival features a lineup of improvisational monsters as well as two nights of performances from the two main headliners, the Booty Band and Donna the Buffalo.

The Booty Band came up with an idea to provide an affordable, interactive, yet top-quality event to showcase some of the Southeast's excellent emerging artists, as well as some world-class greats, all in the name of dance, groove and party - the bacchanalian elements that are the Booty Band. The event takes place in the breathtaking surroundings that are the mountains of Eastern Tennessee on the 135-acre Sneedville Yacht Club Ranch, located on Clinch River. Aside from an impressive musical lineup of bands and DJs, as well family friendly funky theme camps and a Saturday night effigy burning, attendees can also enjoy a wide array of outdoor activities including camping, canoeing, kayaking and mountain biking.

The four day weekend includes music on three stages, as well as the indoor/outdoor Badonkavillion, which provides a covered location for the morning yoga sessions, the High Noon Patriots, a high noon discussion session, a 12 step community support session, as well as a variety of musical workshops hosted by members of the Booty Band (Al Al on bass) and top musicians Jeff Sipe (drums) and Lefty Williams (guitar). The Badonkavillion will also house the early AM DJ sessions.

Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band has always been known as a multifaceted live act and is often joined onstage by trapeze artists and fire dancers as well as visual artists. Their festival aims to stay true to this philosophy by providing a wide variety of recreational activities that include fire performers, drum circles, theme camps, disk golf, the Bootygras Masquerade (bring your costume and boogy!), and a small regional film festival consisting of short films produced by various independent filmmakers and artists.
