Mama's Batch


There is nothing quite like Mama's home cooking. That wholesome feeling is embodied within the music created by this talented group of friends. With each member adding their own unique flavor, the captivating blend of sounds and souls from these musicians is truly something special. Bassist Harry Ong and drummer Aaron Buckingham create an unstoppable force that lays the foundation for keyboardist Tommy Shugart and guitarist Josh Lamkin to add layers of texure and sonic color. Together they produce a perfect mixture of homegrown funk. Add on top of that the soul shattering vocals of Nalani Rothrock and you have a recipe that will leave you begging for more. From the first note played, they establish an intimate relationship with the audience, making each member feel like they are a part of the family. Taking live improvisation to a higher level, a unique experience is created at every show. Bringing a fresh twist to a classic sound, Mama's Batch mixes funk and rock and roll with a sultry taste of soul.
