Hoyt Sherman Place rocked out to Little Feat last night with early help from Ida Mae a UK husband wife team. The crowd consisted of Baby Boomers who danced and sang along to classics many of which were from their epic release "Waiting for Columbus." Feat played for two hours covering their double live classics, and encored to standing room applause from an appreciative crowd.
i enjoyed the show!! Sounded great!! Already looking at dates to see them later in their tour!

The band sounded terrific! Crowd was pretty good but not overly enthused. We had a great time! Oy-oy

YET AGAIN SOUND WAS BAD
This venue is built for proper sound amplification, David Crosby remarked "wow" after he heard how his voice was amplified. Anyone who plays here knows that there will be good "house" sound. However Little Feats sound crew were left wanting and it did not matter what listening point one was in, they were all all equally bad. Issue at point there was too much bass, minimal treble and absolutely no midrange. This is an all star band that has multiple decades of entertainment experience......but no matter how good you are a bad soundscape will doom you. Hot Tuna the opening act were great, bassist Jack Casady (one of the best in the business) was in rare and playful form. Since they were mostly acoustic there sound was fine, but the main act.....could not hear the horn section at all, and they had a lot of nice solo's, the drums ruled the night to the determent of all else. I would love to give this a good review as I have been a Little Feat fan for multiple decades, but can't do it. Please fire your sound guys, get different equipment, do something!!! Learn from the mistakes.

LOVE THE BAND, BUT SOUND SYSTEM MADE IT HARD TO LISTEN TO
I first saw Little Feat at Hara Arena in Dayton on their original Waiting for Columbus tour (I have the t-shirt around here somewhere). I love this band, and always will. And I know the music and words well, but the Taft Theatre sound system and mix made it at times hard to listen to. And it was probably 20% too loud. Sitting in the Balcony was difficult, as I am 6'2" tall, and the seats were painful for this older body and are clearly build for people under 5'8" tall - no leg room worse than a Frontier Air passenger seat. And as the show progressed, it became obvious that the ventilation/cooling system was having a hard time cooling the crowd on a hot night. There were many extended solos, which as a musician I can usually enjoy, but the sound system rendered the solos and many of the lyrics unintelligible. In summary, go see Little Feat if you are a fan of the band. But if you hate instrumental solos, bad sound and unintelligible lyrics, try another show and venue.

BAND WAS GOOD, SOUND SYSTEM AT THE FOX THEATER WAS HORRIBLE
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.
Don R from Nashville, Tennessee
Sound system inadequate and terrible. I know the words to most songs and still could not understand.

SOMETIMES EVEN ROCK& ROLL IS TOO LOUD
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

SOUND LEVEL MUCH TOO LOUD FOR VENUE
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.
Randy Evans from Jamestown, Tennessee
The Taft Theater is a beautiful venue....and Little Feat is a great band, but the combination was dismal. Far too much volume, and the result was massive distortion. Some instruments were blasting over others, and the vocals were muffled. We drove from Tennessee for the show, and left there with a headache.
