Big Shoes was the creation of drummer/producer Andy Peake. In 2012. With a local trend among musicians to form "tribute" bands, Andy had the wild idea to gather musicians of like mind to create a tribute to the 1970's eclectic and brilliant band, Little Feat. Big Shoes gathered a following based on the Little Feat fan base who came to see the "Shoes" meticulous and rocking renditions of their favorite Feat recordings. As time passed the boys in Big Shoes realized how much they enjoyed the genre and their fellow band members and decided to record and perform their own material.
