Coral Reefer Band

Bill Payne

Bill Payne is one of the founding members of the rock band Little Feat. He is considered to be one of the finest American piano rock and blues music artists by many other piano rock musicians, including Elton John. In addition to his trademark barrelhouse blues piano mastery, evident on such Little Feat classics as the Payne-penned Oh Atlanta, he is notable for his work on other keyboards, particularly the Hammond B3 organ.

Bill Payne has worked and recorded with a lot of other musicians including J.J. Cale, Doobie Brothers, Emmylou Harris, Bryan Adams, Pink Floyd, Bob Seger, Toto, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Helen Watson, Stevie Nicks, and Shocking Edison.

Bill performed with Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band during many of the shows of the 2006 Party At The End Of The World Tour.
