Little Feat Shakes up The Ridgefield Playhouse July 18
Little Feat have led a storied life ever since they formed in 1969. Their unconventional signature of earthy, organic appeal and polished, first-rate musicianship wrapped around eclectic and memorable songs -- clearly delivered as an authentic labor of love -- has been a lasting fixture on the musical landscape. As American as apple pie--and rock ‘n roll itself--Feat’s music transcends boundaries, a freewheeling fusion of California rock and Dixie-inflected funk-boogie. 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. Through the years, they’ve scored dozens of hits, including “Dixie Chicken,” “Willin,’” “Let It Roll” and “Rock & Roll Doctor.” Little Feat will shake up The Ridgefield Playhouse on Wednesday, July 18 at 8pm, part of the Pepsi Rock Series powered by Xfinity. Visit The Hideaway (30 Grove Street • Ridgefield) for dinner the day of the show and enjoy a complimentary draft beer or glass of wine with your entree when you show your ticket. Media sponsor for this great night of classic rock is i95, The Home of Rock and Roll.
