Little Feat

July 24, 7:30 pm | The Factory | $49.50

It feels as though we’ve all just passed through fifteen months of the longest, coldest winter of our lives. But all that cold prepares us for spring, and rebirth. So it is with Little Feat. Through all the loss and torment of the past 18 months, the joy and sparkle of all that music, all those songs, has held true. As their newest song, “When All Boats Rise,” puts it:

 

“When All Boats Rise we will find another pathway / When All Boats Rise we will shine like stars above / When All Boats Rise we can ride the silver skyway / That day is coming soon When All Boats Rise.”

 

We need that kind of optimistic faith, and Little Feat is ready to supply it. Feat, do your stuff.

 

The members of Little Feat 2021 are: Bill Payne, Keyboards and Vocals; Sam Clayton, Percussion and Vocals; Fred Tackett, Guitars and Vocals, Kenny Gradney, Bass; Scott Sharrard, Guitars and Vocals; and Tony Leone, drums. Scott joined in 2019, Tony in 2020. Lots more on them later, but for now…

 

Little Feat is very possibly the last-man-standing example of what used to be the norm in American music, a fusion of a broad span of styles and genres into something utterly distinctive. They combined earthy, organic material with first-rate musicianship in a combination that transcends boundaries. Feat took California rock, funk, folk, jazz, country, rockabilly, and New Orleans swamp boogie and more, stirred it into a rich gumbo, and has been leading people in joyful dance ever since.
