A theater in the round… normally a tough sound task for a rock and roll band… but not this time.

This was a spectacular run. Everyone in the Little Feat family is awesome and an honor to work with! Anytime we hear a call from them… we’ll answer in a heartbeat.

Justin, Jack, Myron, Michelle from the Little Feat gang, Phil and I!

Big thinks to all these folks who became family!

I’m writing from New Mexico tonight. It’s been an awesome drive today and I’ll weigh in tomorrow in more detail on the trip!

    Theatre in the round reminded me of the old Front Row Theatre in NE Ohio. I’m sure Hurl will remember it well as it was in our neck of the woods on the east side of Cleveland. It was a round and rotating stage with about 2,500 seats or so. Not a bad seat in the house…unless the band was facing the other way! Haha! Actually, it wasn’t bad at all and the sound was pretty good as I recall. It opened in the early 70’s and one of my sisters worked the concession stand and was in heaven when Andy Williams asked her for an orange soda on his way to the stage. Big bro worked there too and played some pick-up basketball with Germaine(?) Jackson when he was working “security” for the Jackson 5 show. Later, my younger bro worked there parking cars. I got to see some great musicians and epic shows there back in the 70’s and 80’s including: Crosby/Nash, John Prine/Arlo Guthrie, Third World/Jimmy Cliff, Warren Zevon, Bobby Blue Bland/B.B. King, Stephen Stills and The California Blues Band, Mark Farner/Hollies, and The Animals on their last reunion tour in about 1985 when they got into a fistfight with each other after that show and their reunion tour ended abruptly that night. Imagine that! Anyway, I am sure I failed to remember some other great shows there. It was a pretty cool place back then. Again, I’m sure Hurl will recall the venue and maybe have some memories of it as well. Safe travels and hope y’all get back out east for some more shows down the road.

    You post some really nice pictures of the interior of old theaters that the band performs in. When going to different shows in some of these venues I try to take the time to admire the architect & Mater Craftsmanship. Did you ever think to turn those pics into a nice book of some sort ?
    Safe travels
