Dead Feat Back for a Pair at Jazz Fest
New Orleans Jazz Fest will once again feature a couple of shows by a collaboration of two of the best jam bands we’ve been lucky to hear. Dead Feat – featuring Anders Osborne and Bill Kreutzmann of the Grateful Dead, Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett of Little Feat, plus Billy Iuso – will hit the stage of The Howlin’ Wolf in the Crescent City on April 25 & 26. This particular occasion has become a unique landmark for fans of both groups, providing a chance to see new spins on some of their favorite classics.
The Nolafunk Jazzfest, in its fourth year of programming as part of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, will make pre-sale tickets available this Friday, November 21, at noon before general sales begin Friday, December 5, at the same time of day. This supergroup of sorts has held shows at other time and places as recently as this year, but it’s starting to look like this is your only yearly guarantee to catch Little Feat in action. You never know what other special guests may show up to jam out with these guys deep into the Cajun night, too!
