The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown

The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown, a funk conglomerate of musicians from George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Dumpstaphunk, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and many more just released their first single on Itunes, Room 2112 in anticipation of their debut studio album due out this spring.  The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown has only performed live a couple of times due to the conflicting schedules with many of  B.O.N.G's members committed to their other bands' touring schedules.

The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown's first historic live perfomance was in 2008 at the short lived Loki Festival held at the scenic Deerfields just outside of Asheville, NC.  The all-star performance pioneered new ground in funk with a wide range of sounds.  Laura Reed and Ralph Rodenberry and the badly missed Garry "Starchild" Shider all took leads of vocals.  Founded by Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band members John-Paul Miller and Derrick Johnson along with bassist John Heintz, The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown seems destined to evolve with the comprehensive crew of funk extraordinaires.

More photos of The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown at their first live performance are online at Performance Impressions' concert photography archives.
