Little Feat at the Uptown Theatre Napa on 3/18

In his liner notes for Join the Band, Little Feat’s 2008, career-summing CD, Bill Payne described their motivation for recording as a way of locating the band’s influences. When you’ve played together for nearly forty years and have the instrumental chops and ears that Feat does, that’s a lot of influences, so that they can work with friends from Jimmy Buffett to Dave Matthews to Bob Seger to Emmylou Harris to Vince Gill to Chris Robinson and Mike Gordon – and it all makes musical sense.

Little Feat

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. 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. Join the Band sums up that story.
