DES MOINES ROCKS WITH LITTLE FEAT AND IDA MAE
Hoyt Sherman Place rocked out to Little Feat last night with early help from Ida Mae a UK husband wife team. The crowd consisted of Baby Boomers who danced and sang along to classics many of which were from their epic release "Waiting for Columbus." Feat played for two hours covering their double live classics, and encored to standing room applause from an appreciative crowd. i enjoyed the show!! Sounded great!! Already looking at dates to see them later in their tour!

YET AGAIN SOUND WAS BAD
This venue is built for proper sound amplification, David Crosby remarked "wow" after he heard how his voice was amplified. Anyone who plays here knows that there will be good "house" sound. However Little Feats sound crew were left wanting and it did not matter what listening point one was in, they were all all equally bad. Issue at point there was too much bass, minimal treble and absolutely no midrange. This is an all star band that has multiple decades of entertainment experience......but no matter how good you are a bad soundscape will doom you. Hot Tuna the opening act were great, bassist Jack Casady (one of the best in the business) was in rare and playful form. Since they were mostly acoustic there sound was fine, but the main act.....could not hear the horn section at all, and they had a lot of nice solo's, the drums ruled the night to the determent of all else. I would love to give this a good review as I have been a Little Feat fan for multiple decades, but can't do it. Please fire your sound guys, get different equipment, do something!!! Learn from the mistakes.

LOVE THE BAND, BUT SOUND SYSTEM MADE IT HARD TO LISTEN TO
I first saw Little Feat at Hara Arena in Dayton on their original Waiting for Columbus tour (I have the t-shirt around here somewhere). I love this band, and always will. And I know the music and words well, but the Taft Theatre sound system and mix made it at times hard to listen to. And it was probably 20% too loud. Sitting in the Balcony was difficult, as I am 6'2" tall, and the seats were painful for this older body and are clearly build for people under 5'8" tall - no leg room worse than a Frontier Air passenger seat. And as the show progressed, it became obvious that the ventilation/cooling system was having a hard time cooling the crowd on a hot night. There were many extended solos, which as a musician I can usually enjoy, but the sound system rendered the solos and many of the lyrics unintelligible. In summary, go see Little Feat if you are a fan of the band. But if you hate instrumental solos, bad sound and unintelligible lyrics, try another show and venue.

SOUND NO BETTER IN OAKLAND
If I didn't know most of the lyrics I would't have understood a word all night. The horns and vocal mics were too quiet while the drums and lead guitars were too loud. The ironic thing is that Waiting for Columbus was one of the cleanest live albums I had ever heard but this live performance was quite cluttered. It was great to relive these amazing tunes, but to me the performance didn't gel. Not sure every artist needed to have their own solo for every song. Just play the tune. It worked for the original album didn't it? People will say 'This is what Little Feat do live... that's who they are'. Well may be, but Waiting for Columbus was a live production, not studio. It sure worked for them back then, and still does. Despite some cons, it was a nice show and glad I went.

You don’t know as I said fairly close to the front row at the Fox Theatre this Tuesday evening to watch Little Feat relive their great live album waiting for Columbus with only two original members but a fine band nonetheless I thought I was being picky by complaining about the sound quality but evidently after reading other peoples reviewsI was right on the money. I’ve seen this band in various different carnations but was too young to see them before Lowell died. So the chance to see them go back to those Wonderful days was irresistible. I was also stoked about the opportunity to see Hot Tuna who as only a 59 year old I had missed any opportunities to see them in the past. Probably my own fault. The absolute highlight to the show however in my mind and the playing was phenomenal was Jack and Jorma joining the band for a wonderful rendition of Dixie chicken in which they managed to meld Tennessee Jed for a perfect choice of tunes to do with those two. Overall I agree with other reviews fantastic performance, crappy sound
