ABOUT LITTLE FEAT

The brilliant musicianship of Little Feat, the classic example of fusing many styles and musical genres into something utterly distinctive, transcends boundaries—uniting California rock, funk, folk, jazz, country, rockabilly and New Orleans swamp boogie into a rich gumbo continually leading people in joyful dance. It began in 1969, when Frank Zappa was smart enough to fire Lowell George from the Mothers of Invention and tell him to start his own band. Lowell connected with Bill Payne, stirring up sparks. They then found drummer Richie Hayward, were quickly signed by Warner Bros. and began working on the first of 12 albums with the company. Little Feat, featured the instant-classic tune “Willin’.” Follow-up album Sailin’ Shoes added “Easy to Slip,” “Trouble,” “Tripe Face Boogie,” “Cold Cold Cold” and “Sailin’ Shoes” to their repertoire. Paul Barrére, Kenny Gradney (bass), and Sam Clayton (percussion) joined up, and the latter two remain rock-solid rhythm section members. Dixie Chicken (1973) offered the title track and “Fat Man in the Bathtub,” as good a blues as any rock band ever wrote. Their career thus far was summed up with Waiting for Columbus, truly one of the best ever live rock albums. Decades of touring cost them Lowell, then Richie and Paul, yet the music carries them forward. When you spend life on the road you can get eaten up by the stresses-—or hold onto your music and friends and the joy of the people out front and keep the priorities straight. Little Feat in 2024 is Bill Payne (keyboards, vocals), Sam Clayton (percussion, vocals), Fred Tackett (guitars, vocals), Kenny Gradney (bass), Scott Sharrard (guitars, vocals) and Tony Leone (drums). Fifty years on, they’ve been up, they’ve been down, and they know where they belong—standing or sitting behind their instruments, playing for you. Anything’s possible, because the end is not in sight.


ABOUT LOS LOBOS

It’s a matter of time—50 years to be exact. During that time, Los Lobos have created an unprecedented body of work; a legacy of greatness. The numbers are staggering, with 100+ gigs a year five decades running, crossing millions of miles, rocking millions of fans. They’ve recorded 17 studio albums, seven live LPs, three compilations, two Eps and two DVDs. They’ve contributed 40+ guest appearances on friends’ recordings—garnering four Grammys, an Austin City Limits Hall of Fame induction, ALMA Ritchie Valens Pioneer Award, NEA and Hispanic Heritage Foundation honors, Congressional recognitions, and countless “Keys to the City” and “Los Lobos Day” celebrations. Yet beyond the hoopla and applause is tremendous heart. Rather, hearts. Cinco corazones. Five blood brothers who’ve dedicated their off-stage time to helping others, working for peace and justice, penning some of the most literate and important music of their time, transforming hard cries from the East LA barrio into songs of hope; tales of common folk finding ways to endure. The young wolves were weaned on late-night radio’s soul, R&B, and doo-wop; cured through the African American currents of the blues, jazz, and rock ‘n’ roll. An amalgam. As proud Chicanos, their songs glisten with the distillation from their Mexican and Latin American roots—nourished by Norteña and rancheras, buoyed by bolero and cumbias, soaring on the rhythms of son huasteco and son jarocho. Los Lobos have helped spread the rich diversity of cultures across every continent; throughout the global community, The Wolves are cultural ambassadors. Talk about a living legacy and a productive half century. In the true rebel spirit, they did it on their own terms, against formula. For the ages. To our delight. They are one of the tightest, best, most prolific bands ever, with the original founding members still the pack.
