Little Feat was formed in Los Angeles in 1969 by the late, great Lowell George. The music remains an eclectic blend of rock and roll, blues, R&B, boogie, country, folk, gospel, soul, funk and jazz fusion influences. Today, Little Feat is composed of Paul Barrere, Sam Clayton, Gabe Ford, Kenny Gradney, Bill Payne, and Fred Tackett. Barerre, Clayton, Ford, Gradney, and Tackett will be performing at The Pageant, along with Craig Fuller, a past member of Little Feat and founding member of Pure Prairie League.
Jake’s Leg is a St. Louis-based cover band that has been playing and interpreting the music of the Grateful Dead for nearly 40 years. Started as a duo by Randy Furrer and Tim Fahy in the mid-1970s. Today the band members are Furrer, Dave Casper, Joe Trunko, Bill Noltkamper, and Ryan Wilhite.
AAF was founded in May 2014 with the goal of providing educational programs that empower high school students to recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide and take the necessary actions to stop the loss of life. In addition to various awareness efforts, AAF is currently working with Missouri State Sen. Jill Schupp, D-Creve Coeur, to push Senate Bill 328, which would require school districts to adopt a policy for youth suicide awareness and prevention. AAF has also established an annual college scholarship for high school seniors.
“According to save.org, suicide is the second leading cause of death for those 15-24 years old,” said AAF President Rick Cantor. “Mental illness isn’t something people like to talk about, but it touches so many lives—as it has touched mine. Avery’s Angels Foundation was created in memory of my daughter with the goal of saving lives.” For more information, visit Avery’s Angels Foundation website at http://www.averysangelsfoundation.org.
