Snow Don’t Stop The Funk… Thursday Night at Empire!

2015-01-29-empire-webGreetings funkonauts one and all… To those digging out in the northeast, it’s time to shake off that cabin fever and shovel a path to your car because the show Thursday night at Empire is on like Donkey Kong.

In case you haven’t heard, we’re kicking out the jams with this one. Our fellow funkateers from New Hampshire, Harsh Armadillo, will be joining us for the night and they’re bringing a whole big bag of sound with them. These are some great players, playa – don’t miss ’em.

As for us? Well, we’ve come to kick ass and chew bubblegum… and we’re all outta bubblegum.

Doors open up at 9:30pm and the show starts at 10:00pm. Tickets are only $6 and you can grab them online right now or pay at the door. 21+ as always at Empire. We’ve got a handful of new songs to drop on ya, so don’t sleep on this chance to get some fresh funk in your lives.

You probably already missed one day of work this week – why not make it an odd three days and give yourself an epic 3-day weekend? You deserve it a break today.

Building An Empire Of Funk

10679733_733683856705670_7427548322468062539_oGreetings funkonauts… We’ve been having a blast in 2015 so far working on some new tunes for you to dig and it’s almost time for you to come check them out!

The next time to get your dosage of funky soul music is Thursday January 29th at Empire in Portland, ME. We’re bringing our New Hampshire friends Harsh Armadillo to town to get things rolling, and believe us when we say you don’t want to miss these guys because they lay it down. After that, we hit the stage with a fistful of new songs and a whole lotta pent-up funk to get out of our systems.

Tickets are only $6 for the whole night and you can get them online now. No seriously, get them now because you don’t want to get shut out of this one. Doors open at 9:30 pm and the show gets rolling at 10:00 pm. If you have vacation time, plan accordingly for the next day – if not, start practicing your sick voice now for the early morning call out.

Saturday Night, Naples Feels The Funk

Funkonauts, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…

You come out to the shows, you’ve bought Speed Of Soul in at least 3 different formats (not to be too pushy, but you can grab the physical CD from Bull Moose or us at a show, the iTunes version, and then hit up Bandcamp for the audiogeek lossless formats… just sayin’), you like our stuff on Facebook, followed us on Twitter, and then watched through our two outstanding videos from the new album. Really, you’re fantastic.

So let’s have a date night, just the eight of us. Or maybe twelve. Or however many people show up. Whatever. You know we only have eyes for you, right?

Why don’t you put on them dancing shoes (you know the ones) and come out and party with us at Bray’s Brew Pub this Saturday night (678 Roosevelt Trail in Naples). We’ve got all them original funky soul songs that you’re craving, some classics you’ve been missing (did we mention that Lisa is back on the job?), and a new original tune for you to chew on. C’mon… those plans can be cancelled. Let’s do this thing…

See you Saturday night Funkonauts….

TONIGHT at Empire In Portland!

Mama's Boomshack live at Empire in Portland, MaineFor all those funkonauts who have been craving a Portland show, your prayers have been answered! We’ll be tearing it up TONIGHT (Saturday October 11th) at Empire in Portland – and we’re bringing a whole bag of tricks with us…

Portland, Prepare For The Funk

2014-10-11-empire-11x17-webGreetings and salutations funkonauts! It’s been a little while, but it’s time for us to have ourselves a little hometown throwdown in our favorite town on this rock we call earth – Portland, Maine.

Saturday October 11th is the date you’ll want scrawl on your refrigerator in permanent marker – that’s when we’ll be serving up a heaping movable feast of funky soul music at EMPIRE. It’s going to be a fun night for all with our new friends OC & The Offbeats starting things off at 10pm, and then we’re going to hit the stage for the rest of the night. Tickets are only $6 and you can grab them online right now.

And if you’re heading out to the show and haven’t gotten yourself a copy of our new album, Speed Of Soul, why swing by a Bull Moose store near you (say the locations in Portland, South Portland, Scarborough, or Lewiston for instance) and get a CD for the ride? Or if you’re into instant gratification, download the whole shebang right now through Bandcamp, iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon.

See you October 11th!

Friday Night At Mine Oyster

2014-08-08-mineoyster-webFunkonauts, we’ve been having lots of fun at our summer residency up in Boothbay Harbor at Mine Oyster. So much fun – SO MUCH – that we wanted to invite everyone up for the weekend!

You have something better to do on a Friday night than shaking your booty to some funky soul music?

Didn’t think so…

We kick things off at 9:30 pm Friday night (August 8) and keep it rolling until half past midnight. There’s no cover for the show, the sound is kicking, the beer is cold, and there’s a great big place to dance. All the funky favorites will be there along with a couple new tunes for your earhole. Keep the funk alive and come get down with us!

Speed Of Soul Now On Sale!

MamasBoomshack-SpeedOfSoul-frontFunkonauts, we’ve got an exciting couple of weeks ahead of us… We head up to Mine Oyster in Boothbay Harbor, ME for a funky Saturday night on June 21st. After that, we have our album release party at One Longfellow Square in Portland, ME with special guest Essence on Saturday July 5th.

However, you don’t have to wait until then to grab your copy of Speed Of Soul! For those inclined towards a digital download, visit our Bandcamp page and get your copy in a variety of file formats, including high-quality lossless formats. We’re also on iTunes (which is pretty cool no matter how you slice it) and will soon be available on other online stores as well. If you want a CD, head on over to a Bull Moose location in Portland, Scarborough, South Portland, or Lewiston and pick one up off the shelf – if you’re not near any of those stores, you can order a CD through their online store. We’ll also have CDs for sale at all of our shows as well.

Thanks again for all your support – we owe each and every one of you a sweaty hug after a show!
