Big Mike and the Booty Papas
With Big Mike Ventimiglia up front on vocals and guitar, the Booty Papas are Glen “Cuzz” Hutchison on bass, Chris “CC” Crider on guitar, and Greg “Stew Meat” Stewart on the tubs. Showcasing an infectious, down-home style, the band performs with a spontaneity and energy that have garnered it a large and ever-growing following.
Big Mike and the Booty Papas grew out of many jamming Sunday nights at the Back Porch Lounge in Macon, GA. They have opened for such legendary musicians as Bob Dylan, Johnny Winter, and Bo Diddley. They also have released two CDs and were nominated for two Grammys in 1998.
