Big Shoes, Featuring the music of Big Shoes and a tribute to the music of Little Feat
Big Shoes is a group of Nashville and Mid-South American musicians who play their own compositions as well as a tribute set featuring the music of, and paying tribute to the L.A. based band Little Feat. Each member of Big Shoes is himself a veteran of American Classic Rhythm and Blues with credits as support musicians that are as impressive as you will find anywhere. Big Shoes’ own band members boast credits as studio and touring musicians for such greats as Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Robben Ford, Jackson Browne and many more.
Big Shoes has taken on the task of paying homage to Little Feat by re-assembling their music with surgical precision as well as passion and are here to play it for you now. Come join us as we pay tribute to this amazing piece of American history with the music of Little Feat. Little Feat emerged in the early 1970s and released numerous albums on the Warner Bros. Record label throughout the 70’s and into the 80’s at a time when pushing the envelope of styles was accepted and even lauded on a major record label. Little Feat’s underground hit song “Dixie Chicken” only starts to define what Little Feat was and would become. For those of us whose tastes encompass blues, jazz, country, soul, and lyrical ballads, Little Feat is like a comfortable sneaker, with soul.
