Little Feat is an American rock band formed in 1969 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Lowell George and keyboardist Bill Payne. Known for their eclectic blend of rock, blues, R&B, country, and jazz influences, Little Feat has maintained a devoted fan base and influenced generations of musicians with their distinctive sound. The band's early lineup included bassist Roy Estrada, drummer Richie Hayward, and percussionist Sam Clayton. They released their self-titled debut album in 1971, which showcased their unique musical style and George's songwriting prowess. With tracks like "Willin'" and "Dixie Chicken," Little Feat gained critical acclaim and a loyal following for their tight musicianship and genre-blurring approach. Throughout the 1970s, Little Feat released a string of albums that further solidified their reputation as one of the most innovative bands of the era. Albums like "Sailin' Shoes" (1972), "Feats Don't Fail Me Now" (1974), and "The Last Record Album" (1975) continued to showcase their eclectic musical range and George's witty, insightful songwriting. Tragically, Lowell George passed away in 1979, marking the end of an era for Little Feat. Despite this devastating loss, the band continued to carry on his musical legacy, recruiting new members and releasing albums throughout the 1980s and beyond. One of the defining characteristics of Little Feat's music is their dynamic live performances.

Their concerts often feature extended jams and virtuosic solos, showcasing the individual talents of each band member.
