Mary Frances (aka Mama Funk) is probably best known as the irrepressible vocalist and keys player for local funk collective Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band. Fronting her own project, Mary Frances and The Dirty Classics, she kicked off this season’s RiverMusic concert series in fine style. Stephaniesid headlined.

That concert was on Friday, May 24. The next RiverMusic event is Friday, June 14 with David Mayfield Parade (energetic roots/Americana), Underhill Rose (bluegrass/soul and Empire Strikes Brass (funk/rock).
