Little Feat Set to Headline Summer Camp Music Festival

Summer Camp Music Festival reveals that acclaimed American rock band Little Feat will perform a headlining set of their full album, Waiting for Columbus, this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend 2022 (May 27-29), with the Pre-Party taking place on Thursday, May 26th. Debuting more than 50 years ago, Little Feat is taking the stage to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the iconic ‘Waiting For Columbus’ down in Chillicothe, IL. This marks the first Summer Camp appearance for the band, who will join over 100 other artists on multiple stages with 3 days of music and camping. This announcement follows a reveal that The Smashing Pumpkins will also be joining host bands moe. & Umphrey’s McGee in 2022.

Making a truly great live rock and roll album is an enormous challenge, so difficult that they are a rarity.  Waiting for Columbus is a consensus member of that very exclusive club. Feat’s trademark blend of California rock, funk, folk, jazz, country, rockabilly, and New Orleans swamp boogie rested on a base of improvisational skill and jazz-based chops that made their live shows special, and on Columbus those abilities are on triumphant display.

Little Feat 2021-22 features Bill Payne (keyboards, vocals), Kenny Gradney (bass), Sam Clayton (percussion and vocals), Fred Tackett (guitars and vocals), Scott Sharrard (guitars and vocals), and Tony Leone (drums).
