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

Our first experience of Little Feat. There’s no doubt these are talented musicians, very talented- no weakness. They played non stop so gave value for money. Three disappointments though. Firstly, the sound/mixing meant that we found it very difficult to distinguish the vocals, regardless of who was singing. Secondly, we think overdid the improvised solos. These two factors meant that some songs sounded very similar. Third disappointment is that the band themselves support secondary ticket sites by referring queries to them on their website.

The band seemed to play well, but the sound was so bad that I had to imagine what it should have sounded like. As a long time fan, I was very disappointed in the sound system. It was hard to listen to.

2.0 star rating Don R from Nashville, Tennessee


Sound system inadequate and terrible. I know the words to most songs and still could not understand.

2.0 star rating Jake Johnson from Atlanta, Georgia


As an ex-musician, I don't mind loud music but when the overall volume is too loud for the size hall they are plaing(like Atlanta Symphony Hall, it ruins the music. The sound man had way too much bass ansd the vocals were not mixed so that you could hear them over the guitars. It got a little better toward the end with "Spanish Moon" and "Dixie Chicken" but overall, this was not en enjoyable experience. I liked the fact they they honored Lowell George in multiple places and Scott Sharrard did yeoman's work on guitar and vocals. But while I should have been up and dancing on "Oh Atlanta", I was simply disappointed by a group pofof old pros, whose musiv I dearly love being marred by bad sound micing and WAY too much volume. And I saw them play a similar set in Athens Ohio in 1976 ata larger venue where I could hear every word on a magical summer night. RIP Lowell George

2.0 star rating Fred Bamberger from Cleveland, Ohio


The volume was cranked up and almost unbearable. General lack of onstage charisma outside of Kenny. New members were ok but nowhere near the talent of the late Lowell, Paul and Richie. Lead guitar riffs were lacking in range and repetitive. Overall a disappointing show and I’ve seen them around 15 times.
