- Littlefield sings with the Long Players
The Long Players
performing The Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers
The Long Players are a group of Nashville-based musicians who have taken classic albums and performed them live in their original sequence since 2004. The Long Players unique tribute to “the album” as a conceptual work of art sets them apart from other tribute bands that focus on look-a-likes and sound-a-likes. Through this approach and their remarkable ability to pull off a variety of musical styles, they have received national notoriety and have been featured in Billboard and on NPR. The band includes Bill Lloyd (Foster & Lloyd), Steve Allen (20/20), Steve Ebe (Human Radio), Brad Jones (record producer) and Jen Gunderman (Jayhawks). Dipping into Nashville’s exceptional musical community, The Long Players always offer a stellar roster of guest artists to help them bring these classic albums to life.
As homage to Andy Warhol’s love of, if not near obsession for, Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones, The Long Players will perform a faithful rendition of The Stones’ album Sticky Fingers. Renowned saxophone player Bobby Keys, whose sax work is heard on The Rolling Stones’ “Brown Sugar” and “Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’” will be sitting in on The Long Players’ Frist Friday performance. Warhol designed the Sticky Fingers album package which will be on display in the Warhol Live exhibition.
