PIMPS OF JOYTIME



If you have yet to encounter the Brooklyn-based band, The Pimps of Joytime, prepare to take a funky ride! The PJT's live events and recordings have captivated fans all across the country, as they have begun writing their own success story, show-by-show, and track-by-track.

Bandleader Brian J is a charismatic and soulful visionary, whose well-crafted songs invite the listener to enter a world of infectious dance grooves and indelible melodies. Spending formative years in New York City, New Orleans and Los Angeles, Mista J honed his craft, becoming an accomplished live performer, multi-instrumentalist and producer.

In 2005, Brian began to assemble a group of righteously soulful vocalists and musicians to assist in bringing to life the musical concept that would become The Pimps of Joytime. The band's diverse sound and spirited attitude is strongly influenced by the Brooklyn DJ culture and live music scene from which they emerge. Recent collaborations with legendary artists Cyril and Art Neville of the Neville Brothers and Roy Ayers have helped vitalize the band's connection to its roots.

Over the course of the past five years, The Pimps have evolved into a road tested and audience approved groove machine. They have excited crowds at over 100 club dates and festivals in 2012 alone, and are on target to exceed that volume in 2013. The exponential growth of the band's fan base can be partially attributed to an artful blend of musical styles, including elements of afro-beat, salsa, rock & roll and electronica. Brian J's classic songwriting and the band's undeniable swagger on stage consistently energize dance parties wherever they appear.

In 2011, The Pimps of Joytime released their second studio album, "Janxta Funk!" through the boutique label Wonderwheel Recordings. With a steadily increasing repertoire and a passionate following of music lovers nationwide, the time was right to fortify their organization. The wall of their Facebook page is constantly receiving enthusiastic posts from fans from around the globe as word of mouth further carries news of this fresh new arrival.

The Pimps of Joytime are poised to bring their audacious sound to savvy audiences around the planet. Their forthcoming third studio album coming this fall will be a new chapter in the book of the Funk and a testament to the fact that real music is alive and kicking!

YO MAMA'S BIG FAT BOOTY BAND



Deeply rooted in Funk and fully committed to the ongoing evolution of the genre, the Booty Band has a sound that is unique yet has the power and soul to create lasting melodies and seismic rhythms.

The group has been together for a full decade, performing well over 150 shows and completing three to four national tours each year. With a new album in the works at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC (projected release date: March 2013), a remix album entitled Re-Doin' It Hard debuting this August, and Fall tour in full swing, they are certainly artists to watch. Re-Doin' It Hard features some of the band's favorite DJ's including Agent 23 (GFE and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo), DJ leSpam (Spam Allstars), and Lee "InstaFunk" Allen (Booty Band and Eymarel) adding their distinctive perspectives to select tracks from their new album.

Doin' It Hard, their sophomore studio release, is a reflection of the Booty Band's approach to music, touring, performing, and to life in general. Recorded at City of Progress Studios in Miami, FL under the cultivated ear of DJ leSpam, Doin' It Hard is Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band next-generation, redefined for a new decade. Doin' It Hard hit the streets on March 27th 2012 and is available in 12" vinyl, compact disc, and digital download.

Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band is: Lee Allen (drums), Mary Frances (keys, vocals), Greg Hollowell (saxophones, flute), Derrick Johnson (trombone), Al Al Ingram (bass, vocals), and JP Miller (guitar, vocals).
