Join the Band
Come join FeatPrints as we pay tribute to an amazing piece of American music history with the music of Little Feat.
Throughout the 70’s and into the 80’s, 90’s and into the new millennium, Little Feat pushed the envelope of accepted styles blending rocks, 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 songlist of this iconic band with seven of the Bay Area's most in-demand talents whose credits include work with Pablo Cruise, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Kingfish, Elvin Bishop, Zigaboo Modeliste, Ivan Neville, Tommy Castro, Maria Muldaur, Bob Weir, Henry Kaiser, Jules Broussard, Huey Lewis, Shanna Morrison, Betty Lavette, Clarence Clemons, Mickey Thomas, Chris Cain, Gregg Allman, and Mazzy Star.
So for covers that pay homage to the bands original work mixed with jams sizzling with inspired improvisation, grab your sailing' shoes and catch FeatPrints live!
