Little Feat to play in Huntington May 27

Little Feat to play in Huntington May 27

The band Little Feat has led a storied life ever since they formed in 1969.

From then on, their unconventional signature of earthy, organic appeal and first-rate musicianship wrapped around eclectic and memorable songs has been a lasting fixture on the musical landscape.

As American as apple pie — and rock and roll itself — Little Feat’s music transcends boundaries, representing a freewheeling fusion of California rock and Dixie-inflected funk.

In the mix as well are strains of folk, blues, rockabilly, country and jazz, inventing a hybrid sound that is truly Little Feat’s own.

Students of the music of Little Feat will recall their seminal album, “Waiting for Columbus,” recorded in 1977.

The album features the addition of the Tower of Power Horns and is widely considered to be one of top live recordings ever produced.

Now, forty years after “Waiting for Columbus,” fans of Little Feat are in for a treat with a concert performance at The Paramount on Saturday, May 27 at 8 p.m.

The Midnight Ramble Horns will perform the horn section for the show.

Little Feat performed with the Midnight Ramble Horns in Jamaica as part of Little Feat’s annual Jamaican excursion.

The Midnight Ramble Horns consists of Jay Collin on saxophone, who has performed with the Gregg Alllman Band, the late Levon Helm, and Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen; Erik Lawrence, a saxophonist and flutist who has also performed with Helm, as well as Bob Dylan, Mavis Staples, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Aretha Franklin, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, and many other headline musicians; and Steven Bernstein, a trumpeter, arranger and composer who has been featured on MTV, “Saturday Night Live” and National Public Radio.

This special concert event will showcase Little Feat classics and a horn section of the highest caliber.

The Paramount is located at 370 New York Ave. in Huntington.
