Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes
Southside (a nickname picked up because of his bent toward the blues sounds of
the Southside of Chicago) and his band, eventually called the Asbury Jukes,
worked on their growing reputation as a dynamic live band through the late 60's
and early 70's. "We built a big band, a home for lots of musicians, horns and all:
sure we called it Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, but it was really just a
bunch of guys getting crazy on stage." Then, in 1975, they signed with CBS/Epic
Records and released the critically acclaimed I Don't Want To Go Home--and a
legend was begun. What followed were decades of recording and touring and
solidifying a place in rock 'n roll history…a period of ups and downs, dozens of
great songs, and storied live performances. Today Jukes fans flock to every corner of the globe to hear what the masters sound like.
Easily one of the hardest working bands in show biz, today’s Little Feat is a seven-member powerhouse that ably carries on the group’s tradition in both the recording and touring arenas. Their most recent studio album is Kickin’ It At The Barn, produced by Feat-ers Paul Barrere, Bill Payne and Fred Tackett. It’s named after the place it was recorded throughout 2003, Tackett’s barn-come-studio in Topanga Canyon, which Bill Payne has called ”Little Feat’s version of The Band’s ‘Big Pink’,“ and which lent an invaluable ambience to the undertaking. In his liner notes, faithful Feat scribe Paul Barrere writes, ”If music is a conversation between the players, then we are talking like never before…this has been truly one of the most memorable recording projects we’ve done. We started with an idea to write songs on acoustic guitar and piano, like the old days before computers and samples, and then let the band interpret the music.“
Feat’s story began in 1969 when songwriter, performer, multi-instrumentalist, and all around colorful character Lowell George, formerly of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention, set out to form his own band -- at Zappa’s suggestion. The brilliant and often idiosyncratic George connected with keyboard master Bill Payne, and, along with drummer Richie Hayward and Roy Estrada, founded Little Feat. They were soon signed to Warner Bros., where Little Feat, in various configurations, would remain for twelve of their sixteen albums. With hits like Dixie chicken, Times Loves a Hero and Sailin Shoes "the Feat" don't fail ya live!
