Jackson Browne Joins Little Feat and the Midnight Ramble Band in Jamaica
“Jamaica Say You Will” – This just about says it all, doesn’t it.
In a fortuitous turn of events, Bill was in San Diego enjoying a day off from touring with the Doobie Brothers, when he decided to drop by and visit his old friend Jackson Browne, who also happened to be in town performing. As the conversation went along Jackson recalled that awhile back we had mentioned the idea of him joining in the fun while we were in Jamaica, to which Billy inquired, “Well, if you don’t have any plans this January, why don’t you come on down?” Never one to shy away from a good time, this struck a chord with Jackson and he responded with an enthusiastic, ” That sounds awesome, I want to do this!”
As a result of that conversation, we are thrilled to be able to share with you that Jackson Browne, along with Greg Leisz, the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist from his band, will be joining us for the 15th Annual Feat Camp in Runaway Bay, Jamaica, January 9-13, 2017. Jackson and Greg will perform two acoustic shows as well as sitting in and generally stirring up the pot in the best way possible.
It bears repeating that Jackson and Little Feat are branches of the same family tree that grew from the LA music scene of the 70’s. They played shows together, played on each other’s records and have known each other for so long that this upcoming Feat Camp is now truly reminiscent of a family reunion, albeit in the best sense. In that same vein, what you may not know is that Jackson shares a similar connection with Larry and Theresa. Not too long ago Jackson went to Woodstock and played a Ramble and he saw first hand what an amazing scene was going on there. Soon after he was there, he invited Larry and Theresa to tour with him and had them join his band and open some shows. If you were lucky enough to have attended one of these shows you know how special they were. It appears that the branches that sprung from LA now extend all the way to Upstate New York. The musical possibilities that could emerge as a result of this gathering are tantalizing indeed!
