Longstanding, eclectic rock n’ roll band Little Feat bring their Waiting on Columbus Tour to Montana for shows at The ELM in Bozeman on Aug. 3 and outdoors at KettleHouse Amphitheater near Missoula on Aug. 4.
The tour shares the name and celebrates the 45th anniversary of the band’s first live album which they recorded in 1977 and released in 1978. For more than 50 years, Little Feat has been busting out a freewheeling fusion of California rock and Dixie-inflected funk-boogie.
Since their formation in 1969, Little Feat has had a prolific career making more than 40 combined studio, live, and compilation albums. Feat’s fabled collaborators have included Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Beck, Brian Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Plant, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Lang, and Leftover Salmon.
Easily one of the hardest working bands in show biz, today’s Little Feat is a six-member powerhouse consisting of band founder (and current Montana resident) 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.
