New allotment of rooms for Jamaica 2018 is now available
Ramble on the Island has been sold out since it went on sale a few weeks ago, but we're happy to announce that we've secured a limited number of additional rooms at The Royalton Blue Waters.
This resort is just 15 minutes from Melia Braco Village where the concerts will be taking place, so you won't miss any music. Shuttle is only included for the nights of Jan 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14th. On the pre-night of Jan 10th the shuttle will begin in the evening. Guests can enjoy the 'stay at 1 play at 3' benefits with access to the adjacent Royalton White Sands and also, the Melia Braco Village where the event is taking place.
As mentioned, there will only be a limited number of rooms available as we want to retain Ramble on the Island’s intimacy, but also accommodate those who were shut out by the quick sellout. Ramble on the Island will be from January 11-15, 2018.
Little Feat is happy to announce a return to our Jamaican roots with the always highly anticipated Feat Camp, aka Ramble on the Island. Returning to the site of our first Feat Camp, we will take over the recently remodeled Melia Braco Village from January 11-15, 2018. The Melia has an old-world charm reminiscent of the Grand Lido, but it has been tastefully updated and modernized. Take a moment and look at the Island Gigs website to get a better understanding of what awaits you. We think you will love it!
After we got home from Jamaica last year we all felt it was the best event yet and one well worth repeating. We are thrilled to announce that both Jackson Browne and the Ramble Band are coming back. Each artist will play three shows during the Camp and you can expect plenty of crossover collaboration. In addition to Feat’s three Camp shows, the band also will play on January 10 for folks who arrive a day early.
For this upcoming Ramble on the Island, Jackson will be accompanied by longtime vocalists Alethea Mills and Chavonne Stewart, along with the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).
Despite how connected we all have become in this modern world, occasionally scheduling conflicts can still occur. As we prepared the announcement for our return to Jamaica, Billy got the news that the Doobie Brothers had committed to a series of shows at exactly the same time as our trip to Jamaica. After all the possibilities of moving the dates were exhausted, it became apparent that Billy would not be able to join us.
“Unfortunately, Billy won't be with us this year due to conflicting schedule commitments, Paul says. “But having the Ramble Band’s Brian Mitchell sit in on keys will definitely add some flavor. And speaking of flavor, we've invited Papa John Gros to join us as well. For those that don't know about John, he's a wonderful keyboardist from New Orleans.
“Both of these guys are masters at blending rock and roll, funk and rootsy Americana into genre-bending gumbo. Kinda like Feat, if I do say so myself! Fred and I have worked with John many times on our trips to New Orleans, so we plan on having a bit of a Mardi Jah Mon! It will be funky for sure. So get your rooms early and come join us for the fun in the sun.”
Billy adds, “I have had the pleasure of playing with both these cats and I can think of no one else more suited. When I started to think about who could take this on, they were the two players at the top of my list. I have spoken with both Brian and John and I can say they are both looking forward to being a part of our wonderful event and they will play some inspired music for everyone to soak in.”
We look forward to seeing you back where it all began! And if you’ve been there before you know it’ll be all that you dream!
