Out of the well known Guelph music scene, The Funky Mamas are sending musical waves across the Nation. The Funky Mamas released their second CD, Rollin’ Along, to two full-house crowds in their hometown where over 800 parents and children, friends and relations danced, clapped hands, snapped fingers, and generally grooved with the Mamas at a free community event.
The enthusiasm of the crowd for the highly interactive performance coupled with the strong CD sales speaks of the loyal following The Funky Mamas have gathered over the years. Since 1998, these five musical moms have performed for families after meeting at a playgroup with their 11 children.
The Funky Mamas have performed across Canada, including such highlights as Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, Guelph’s Hillside Festival, Winnipeg Folk Festival in Manitoba, Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival, Lethbridge Children’s Festival in Alberta, as well as numerous theatres, public libraries, schools, corporate and fundraising events. Their live performances are memorable and uplifting for families.
Anyone who has heard The Funky Mamas knows how infectious their music is; Rollin’ Along continues that tradition with a hand picked selection of delightful tunes and beautiful artwork. The Funky Mamas richly produced CD includes playful original songs written by the Mamas and traditional compositions in both French and English. It features spirited vocals and sweet harmonies that are enjoyable for both kids and adults alike.
The Mamas include Georgia Urban on musical saw, guitar, mandolin, pennywhistle, bass, percussion; Tannis Maynard-Langedijk on guitar, ukulele and percussion; Kate Vsetula on banjo and banjo-ukulele ; Alicia Miecznikowski on bass, recorder and percussion (as well as CD cover artist); and Chantal vonMaydell, fiddle, bass and drums. Their first self- titled CD and this latest release also includes backing vocals by The Funky Kid Choir.
Bluegrass and folk influences are strong in arrangements of traditional songs such as “Shortnin’ Bread,” “Alouette” “Raccoon and Possum,” and “Rattlin’ Bog,” while funk and blues rhythms are infused into “Rollin’ Along”, “Blast off into Reading” and “Bananas Unite” The Mamas’ strong commitment to environmental causes inspired the group composition, “Breathe in the Air” which has recently been made into a music video.
