Rock icons Little Feat were famously backed by the Tower Of Power horn section at the 1977 shows that yielded their landmark live album Waiting For Columbus. Forty years later, the band will soon embark on a run of U.S. shows and will be joined by The Midnight Ramble Horns at five of the dates.
The Midnight Ramble Horns were put together by the late Levon Helm for performances at his home/studio and beyond. Back in January, Little Feat brought the horn section down to Jamaica for their annual excursion. The players in The Midnight Ramble Horns are saxophonist Jay Collins, multi-instrumentalist Erik Lawrence and trumpeter Steven Bernstein.
Little Feat will be backed by the horns at the first five shows of their six-date May run. Up first is a performance at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. on May 21. From there, the group and the horns head to the Keswick Theater in Glenside, Pennsylvania on May 22 and the Bergen PAC in Englewood, New Jersey on May 24. The Midnight Ramble Horns will also join Little Feat at The Klein in Bridgeport, Connecticut on May 25 and Huntington, New York’s The Paramount on May 27.
