Artrageous is a Music & Arts Community based in the High Desert of New Mexico. They believe in bringing people together through the power and passion of the Arts. Their art works are in private and public collections around the world.

For the first time on one stage – the Fine Arts meet the Performing arts. Experience the thrill of witnessing giant masterpieces being created before your eyes in mere moments and join the challenge to see if you can guess what is being created. Artrageous artists use bold colours with hands and brushes as they are inspired by the troupe’s vocalists, musicians and dancers as they race to complete the paintings before the last note.

Artrageous is a totally unique concept that invites community and a sense of togetherness as the whole show culminates in a one of a kind Live Arts Installation at the end of each concert. Audiences interact with the Gallery, the Performers and even add their own art.

Let’s celebrate together.

A Tuba To Cuba is as much a soundtrack to our documentary as it is a collection of songs that we wrote and recording during the filming and after its completion.  The writing and recording of our previous release, “So It Is” began before our first trip to Cuba in 2015.  We had no idea that it would become the album it would until we returned home from that first trip.  The “A Tuba To Cuba” soundtrack is comprised of a combination of songs that are both in the movie and new songs that aren’t in the film or couldn’t have been in the film because not until we were able to watch it ourselves, we were again inspired to put that spirit into new music.  Our five years exploring the Cuba/NOLA history has been inspiring to say the least.

The name was part of the legend.  A member of the Mothers happened to mention Lowell’s small feet to him “with an expletive,” said Paul Barrere.  “Lowell deleted the expletive and the name was born with Feat instead of Feet, just like the Beatles.  Neat, huh?” The first album, Little Feat, featured the instant-classic tune “Willin’,” and the follow-up Sailin’ Shoes added “Easy to Slip,” “Trouble,” “Tripe Face Boogie,” “Cold Cold Cold” and the title track to their repertoire.  Estrada departed, and the band signed up Paul Barrere, Sam Clayton (percussion) and Kenny Gradney (bass), and the new guys are still around. 1973’s Dixie Chicken gave them the title track and “Fat Man in the Bathtub,” as good a blues as any rock band’s ever written.  The hits kept coming: the title track from Feats Don’t Fail Me Now (1974) and The Last Record Album (1975), which included “Rock and Roll Doctor,” “All That You Dream,” and “Oh, Atlanta” – another Southern-based winner (pretty good for a bunch of guys from L.A.!)  In 1977, Time Loves a Hero delivered the classic title song, and their career to that point was summed up with the live Waiting for Columbus, truly one of the best live albums rock has ever heard. Success is hard.  It cost Feat their founder, Lowell George, who passed in 1979.  And it cost them, temporarily, their joy; shortly after, they disbanded.  In 1986, Barrere and Payne met up in a chance jam session, and found that they could still find that inspiration.  They added Bob Dylan’s guitarist Fred Tackett to the lineup and toured for quite a while, but in 2010 the big C claimed Richie Hayward.  They looked around and realized that Gabe Ford, Richie’s drum tech (and Robben’s nephew), fit right in.  And that’s the Little Feat of today:  Payne, Barrere, Tackett, Gradney, Clayton & Ford, for your listening pleasure. In the early part of the new millennium, Feat started their own Hot Tomato Records and began to share their rich archives with their fans, producing the double CD collections of rarities Raw Tomatos and Ripe Tomatos from both fan and band tapes. Join the Band, in many ways a summing up of all that preceded it, came in 2009, with re-recordings of their classic songs bringing together a vast slew of musical friends on vocals backed by Feat – Dave Matthews on “Fat Man,” Jimmy Buffett on “Champion of the World,” Emmylou Harris on “Sailin’ Shoes.”  Bill Payne said it was about locating their influences.  In some ways, it documents the way they’ve influenced the musicians who listen to them.  And it certainly documents a musical career. Their latest work is Rooster Rag, by critical consensus their best studio album in twenty years, featuring four songs co-written by Payne and the Grateful Dead’s legendary lyricist Robert Hunter, four breakout songs by Fred Tackett, and a superb collaboration between Paul Barrere and the late Stephen Bruton, Fifty years down the road, they’ve been up and they’ve been down and they know where they belong – standing or sitting behind their instruments, playing for you.  And anything’s possible, because the end is not in sight.

From the earliest jugband beginnings, through the acid-drenched 60’s, Americana roots, Jam-based Jazz explorations to their 80’s brush with the Top 10, Dead On Live will faithfully recreate the classic album cuts and infamous live versions that defined the Grateful Dead. All presented in DOL’s truly unique, note for note, as played by the Dead format. You’ll hear Phil’s rootless syncopations, Weir’d guitar rhythms, Billy and Micky driving drum army and of course, the heart and soul of Jerry Garcia.

The group was born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 35 albums, including their latest, Make America Grin Again. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.

DOORS 6:30PM • SHOWTIME 7:30PM

Artrageous is a Music & Arts Community based in the High Desert of New Mexico. They believe in bringing people together through the power and passion of the Arts. Their art works are in private and public collections around the world.

For the first time on one stage – the Fine Arts meet the Performing arts. Experience the thrill of witnessing giant masterpieces being created before your eyes in mere moments and join the challenge to see if you can guess what is being created. Artrageous artists use bold colours with hands and brushes as they are inspired by the troupe’s vocalists, musicians and dancers as they race to complete the paintings before the last note.

Artrageous is a totally unique concept that invites community and a sense of togetherness as the whole show culminates in a one of a kind Live Arts Installation at the end of each concert. Audiences interact with the Gallery, the Performers and even add their own art.

Let’s celebrate together.
