Go on Shake it, Shake it! Shake That Healthy Butt!

Asheville, North Carolina’s Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band’s name may summon thoughts of Wilmer Valderrama’s “Oh, Snap!” face (from MTV’s Yo Momma), but the band’s handle means more than mother-slaggin’ insults.

Instead, YMBFBB’s moniker is a celebratory call to those with healthy-sized backsides (and the boney ones too, why not?) to hit the dance floor. The P-funk of posteriors, YMBFBB, stuffs ten pounds of horns, costumes and funk into a five-pound bag, making them a fan favorite. The band hits the Backroom Blues Bar (7200 North Dixie Hwy., Boca Raton) on Friday at 8 p.m. And in lieu of standard applause, drop down and Make-it-Clap to show some love. Call 561-988-8929.
