"Ask Yo' Mama" is the debut album by The GroovaLottos and it has been finding its way onto over 150 radio station rotation lists throughout the USA and Canada, and was recently the "album of the week" on BBC Manchester in the UK. Now the album has made it into the preliminary round of The Grammys in six categories: "Best Contemporary Blues Album"; "Best Alternative Album"; "Best Traditional R&B Performance" for the song "Autumn Moon"; "Best Traditional Pop Performance" for the song "Ask Yo' Mama"; "Best Contemporary Country Performance" for the song "Do You Mind(IfWeDanceWitYoDates)?"; and "Best Production" for the production work of band members Mwalim & Eddie Ray Johnson.

This has been a landmark year for The GroovaLottos who are quietly making the rise from New England regional band to an international act. They were selected to open the Gathering Of Nations Powwow this past April where they performed in front of an audience of 48,000 people live and 1.5 million via webstream. Their highly successful "The Phunk Hits" summer street concert tour on Cape Cod raised their international profile as tourists from all over danced in the streets to their music.
