The Funky Mamas are a delightful group who engage children of all ages with their captivating stage presence, charming antics and, of course, funkiness. Their songs are both familiar and original – from blues and folk to a sprinkling of pop, rock, swing and funk.
The Mamas have kicked up their heels and strummed, picked and fiddled their way across Canada. Recent highlights include Home County Folk Festival, Canada Day Place, Vancouver, BC, Santa Claus Parade Summer BBQ in Toronto, The McMichael Gallery, Alianait Arts Festival in Nunavut, Cambridge and Peterborough Folk Festivals, Guelph’s Hillside Music Festival, Forbes Park Children’s Festival, Fergus Fall Fair, The Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, Nathan Philips Square, Royal Botanical Gardens, Guelph’s River Run Performing Arts Centre, Mariposa Folk Festival, Northern Lights Boreal, Winnipeg Folk Festival and the Lethbridge Children’s Festival.
"Hailing from the great northern land of children's music (Ontario, Canada) The Funky Mamas is a delightful group that mixes the string bending fun of bluegrass bands like Uncle Earl, with the witty lyricism of Loudon Wainwright III."

“Fortunately things are looking up on the kids music front. There are great Canadian acts that understand that parents are listening too. Eric Nagler, Fred Penner, Jack Grunsky, Connie Kaldor, Raffi, and The Funky Mamas are among the best!”
