But wait, there’s more.

Little Feat exploded out of its Covid hiatus with a fan-favorite “By Request Tour,” then began their tribute to the legendary live recording Waiting for Columbus, playing the song suite at every show.  It culminated in two recent shows in Nashville shot for PBS that featured multiple guests; the show will broadcast later this year.

The shows were volcanic, with band and guests throwing down their A games.  They all had so much fun that a number of the guests decided they wanted more.  So on April 12th at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, the audience will see and hear not only Little Feat, complete with horn section, but also:

Rosanne Cash, musical heir to America’s first family of song, the Carters and the Cashes.

Tommy Emmanuel, fingerpicking acoustic guitar master.

Steve Kimock, guitar wizard and sublime jam-band maestro.

Bettye Lavette, whose unique blend of blues, gospel, funk and soul placed her in the Blues Hall of Fame and onstage at President Obama’s inaugural.

John Leventhal, multiple Grammy winning singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist monster.

Oh by the way, the David Bromberg Quintet will open.  Be there or be….you know.
