Little Feat

The Milford Oyster Festival, sponsored by Xfinity, celebrates 50 years of FUN with a great line up of bands representing a wide range of musical genres.

The Festival welcomes Little Feat to headline the main stage on August 17, 2024. Over the past 50 years, Little Feat has used a combination of elite musicianship and brilliant songwriting to create a repertoire that transcends all boundaries. California rock, funk, jazz, country and rockabilly mixed with New Orleans swamp boogie led to a powerful sound that has kept the audience dancing for decades. From the new release , Sam’s Place, to old favorites like “Dixie Chicken”, “Spanish Moon”, “Fat Man in the Bathtub”, “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now” Little Feat will be rocking MILFORD.

Lead Singers

Opening for Little Feat will be Lead Singers of Classic Rock. This band features Jason Scheff, longtime lead singer of the band Chicago and Tommy DeCarlo, a former lead vocalist of Boston. Jason and Tommy will feature Chicago's classic ballads and Boston's thumping guitar-driven hit songs.

Living Colour

Warming up the stage for these two great bands is Living Colour. Living Colour is a Grammy award winning rock band from New York City, formed in 1984. Stylistically, their music is a creative fusion influenced by heavy metal, funk, jazz, hip hop, punk, and alternative rock. The band's lyrics range from the personal to the political.

Kicking off the music will be No Strings Attached a popular local duet playing your favorite hits from the 60’s to the present.

Jay Pinto, President of The Milford Oyster Festival said, “This is the first time we will have three national acts at the Festival. The bands represent a wide range of rock music and will be a tremendous way to celebrate our 50th anniversary.”
