For those who made it out to The Big Easy this past Saturday night – thank you very much. We’d also like to thank Ken, Eddie, and all the staff at The Big Easy for making it such a great night and a great place to play.
Now, if you didn’t get a chance to get out Saturday, we’ve got you covered with a couple videos from the show. First up, we have our version of the Baby Huey & The Babysitters classic “Hard Times” (which was more recently covered by John Legend & The Roots on their Wake Up! album). After that, there’s some Headhunters funk with “God Made Me Funky”. Enjoy!
Every so often, the funk hotline rings here at The Boomshack (you know, the red one we keep under glass here at our palatial estate) and someone is in need of The Funk. Well, it happened again this week and we’re ready to respond.
This coming Saturday night at 8pm, Mama’s Boomshack will be shakin’ everything we got at The Big Easy in Portland, ME – and we need YOU! C’mon by for a couple pints with five of your closest friends and dance a little of that post-Memorial Day work week dust off your brain. Five bucks gets you in the door for a couple hours of funky music. At 11 pm, Goosepimp Orchestra takes over and jams the night away.
Greetings ‘Shack denziens – it’s Tuesday, do you know where your funk is? Well, wonder no more…
Mama’s Boomshack will be mixing with the folks in Portland tonight as we grab the open mic at Bull Feeney’s on Fore Street around 9:30 pm. The plan is to get there and be first on, so make sure you plan your interstellar jump early and have a pint of Guinness in hand for the appointed hour. We’ve got some good ol’ funky music along with some soulful stuff too, so bring yourself and a dozen or so friends for a funky good time.
Oh, and in case you’re not down with yet – head on over to our Facebook page and bang that Like button for us. Then, you can wander over to Twitter and follow us there as well. Imagine that – Mama’s Boomshack coming at you in 3D. So groovy… well, you know the rest…
Pssssssssssssst! Hey you! Yeah, you! The one with the bright orange flared bell bottoms… Why spend another Tuesday night sitting around editing Larry Graham’s Wikipedia page when you could get off your duff, out of the house, and get a sample of the groove to come instead?
That’s right, tomorrow night – Tuesday April 26th – you can catch an extra special, top secret shakedown test flight of the mothership as Mama’s Boomshack grabs the open mic at The Run Of The Mill in Saco. What time? Well, that’s a good question… We have a few funkonauts who’ll be making the transgalactic jump a little later than the rest of us, so figure on showing up around 9pm and we’ll get up there when we can. Head on down, grab a pint (did I mention that they brew their own brew?) and enjoy the entertainment.
