Mama's Love
Mama's Love
Mama’s Love is an American Rock band formed in Athens, Ga. in 2007. Like the town where the band resides, the sound is progressive with hints of classic tones. Live energetic shows, definitive song craftsmanship, and a genre-defying sound have formed the buzz that follows the Mama's Love experience. They maintain a strong sense of tradition in classic American music, while staying progressive with their improvisational segments and song structures. Catchy melodies, lyrical hooks, and layered harmonies are supported by a tight rhythmic foundation with a classic rock, funk, and americana flavor, harvesting their songs from the roots of time.

Continuous touring has built a devoted fanbase across major music markets throughout the country. With influences like Little Feat, The Grateful Dead, and Steely Dan, they play with rare maturity and integrity. The demand to play in clubs, theaters, and college events across the country has been increasing with the rise of their musicianship, and the reception of their rowdy and loyal fanbase. The success of Mama’s Love today springs from strong creative chemistry, energetic live performances, and an ever-growing arsenal of classic songs.

What originally started as an organic, impromptu and free-flowing collection of musicians casually performing in the renovated remains of a dilapidated “shack” in Blacksburg, VA has morphed into what is now The Shack Band. Since 2010, things have changed. The band relocated from Blacksburg to Richmond, VA. A true lineup was established, with four members signing on. The songwriting abilities and sensibilities matured and improved. At the start of 2013, the quartet became a quintet with the addition of a horn player adding more complex arrangements and texture to the band’s already well-established sound. But, the one thing that never wavered was The Shack Band’s intent to wow new crowds with their off-the-cuff, high-energy live shows melding funky rock ‘n’ roll and soaring harmonies with a strong emphasis on song-writing.

In 2012 alone, The Shack Band played 120 + shows up and down the East Coast and as far west as Chicago, while performing alongside a number of national touring acts, including: moe., Moon Taxi, The Machine, Perpetual Groove, The Pimps of Joytime, The Heavy Pets, Assembly of Dust, Everyone Orchestra and Dangermuffin among others. Thanks to their raw, infectious live shows and incessant touring, The Shack Band have seen, felt, and heard the effects of their budding reputation and burgeoning fan base. In February of 2012, they released their first EP, Born & Raised, to a sold-out crowd in their hometown of Richmond, VA. For 2013, the goals are simple yet ambitious: hit the rarified level of 200+ live shows, release their first full-length album, and continue to hone their craft while writing and learning new material.
