Barry Wofsy Heart of Rock & Roll Series featuring FeatPrints

From the event description:

Come join FeatPrints as we pay tribute to 50 years of American music history with the music of Little Feat. Throughout the '70s and into the '80s, '90s and into the new millennium, Little Feat pushed the envelope of accepted styles blending rocks, blues, Cajun, country and fusion into a tasty gumbo. Their hits like “Dixie Chicken,” “Willin,” “Oh Atlanta” and “Let It Roll” just begin to scratch the surface on what they could do live.
