Originally formed in 1969, Little Feat is a band that has defied easy classification. Successfully blending elements of country, blues, rock and funk into their music, Little Feat won the admiration of music critics and rapidly drew a following of diehard fans with its 1970's album releases of DIXIE CHICKEN, TIME LOVES A HERO and WAITING FOR COLUMBUS. The band continues to evolve and released a new album, CHINESE WORK SONGS, in 2000. The Waterfront Blues Festival is the primary fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank, and this year featured over a hundred blues acts.
