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’s spontaneity and energy during live shows have garnered it a large and ever-growing following.

Big Mike and the Booty Papas have opened for such legendary musicians as Bob Dylan, Johnny Winter, and Bo Diddley, among others. This Jubilee performance, in which they have the stage all to themselves, was recorded at the 1999 W.C. Handy Blues Festival in Henderson, KY.
