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.
Craig Fuller is a past member of Little Feat and founding member of Pure Prairie League. While with PPL, he wrote and sang the band’s most noteworthy song, “Amie,” and was the major songwriter on the band’s first two, most highly acclaimed albums. As a member of Little Feat, he was a major writer on “Let It Roll,” “Representing The Mombo,” and “Shake Me Up.”
New Orleans native John “Papa” Gros has spent more than a quarter-century behind the piano championing the music of the Big Easy. He’s played it all—New Orleans funk, rock & roll, jazz, blues, Americana, pop/rock— and he swirls those styles into a genre-bending gumbo that pays tribute to his influences while still pushing ahead into new territory. Like Allen Toussaint and Dr. John, Gros is a proud local who carries on the tradition of New Orleans music, both honoring its past and helping to shape its future.
A.R.C. Angels Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization 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.
