A Tribute to Little Feat
Feats Done Right!!!
Join FeatPrints nine piece all star band as we pay tribute to an amazing 50 years of American music history with the music of Little Feat.
Throughout the 70’s and into the 80’s, 90’s and the new millennium, Little Feat pushed the envelope of accepted styles blending rock, blues, cajun, country and fusion into a tasty gumbo. Their hits, like “Dixie Chicken,” “Willin,” “Oh Atlanta” and “Let It Roll” just begin to scratch the surface on what they could do live. The legions of grassroots loyal fans that still follow them to this day are a testimony to their legacy. FeatPrints take on the prodigious task of playing the songfest of this iconic band with nine of the Bay Area’s most in-demand talents whose credits include work with Little Richard, Elvin Bishop, Herbie Hancock, Zigaboo Modeliste, Ivan Neville, Tommy Castro, Percy Sledge, the Drifters, Maria Mauldaur, Bob Weir, Henry Kaiser, Jules Broussard, Huey Lewis, Shanna Morrison, Betty Lavette, Clarence Clemons, Mickey Thomas, Chris Cain and Gregg Allman.
