Feed The Hungry Benefit Concert 8/14

Southside Johnny Southside Johnny Live Nation is pleased to present Little Feat and Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes in a Concert to Feed the Hungry on Long Island on Tuesday, August 14.

Little Feat, the band founded by Lowell George and Bill Payne, is best known for songs like “Willin,” “Fat Man in the Bathtub,” and “Roll ’Em Easy.” Longtime members Kenny Gradney, Paul Barrere and Sam Clanton joined the band in 1972. They added “Dixie Chicken” (1973), “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now,” “Oh, Atlanta” (1974), and “Time Loves a Hero” (1977) to their growing repertoire. In 1979, Little Feat announced their break-up just prior to the death of Lowell George.

In 1988, Fred Tackett officially joined Little Feat and the band released “Hate to Lose Your Lovin” from “Let It Roll,” their first studio album after the nine year hiatus following Lowell’s death. “Texas Twister” (1990) followed on the album “Representing The Mambo.” Little Feat’s brand new album, “Rooster Rag” was just released.

Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes emerged on the music scene in 1976 with the smash hit, “I Don’t Want To Go Home.” Southside Johnny has been long considered a founding father of the “New Jersey” sound and is acknowledged as the inspiration for Jon Bon Jovi’s “reason for singing.”

Among their many hits and fan favorites are “Trapped Again,” “This Time It’s For Real,” and “Having a Party,” as well as Springsteen’s “The Fever,” and “Talk To Me.” Their new live CD, “Men Without Women,” was recorded last summer at the Stone Pony in New Jersey.
