What could be better than a night of Little Feat music? Well, a night of Grateful Dead AND Little Feat music!
The Left-Hand Monkey Wrench Gang was formed by Pete Sawyer (Brightshine, Seconds On End) to explore the depth and breadth of the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band catalog. Through conversational improvisation and deep listening, the Monkey Wrench Gang lets the music play the band, serving as a channel for the energy inherent in the Grateful Dead experience. The Left Hand Monkey Wrench Gang draws from their extensive experience playing with members of the Grateful Dead, The Jerry Garcia Band, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and Stu Allen to provide scintillating interpretations of Grateful Dead and JGB classics.
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.
