Smalls' 'Lukewarm Water Live!' tour begins on November 6 in Los Angeles. Backing the iconic fictional bassist will be three celebrated guitarists, Toto's Steve Lukather, Dweezil Zappa and Waddy Wachtel.
In addition to the live band, Smalls will also employ "satellite technology" to avail himself of the services of the likes of Steve Vai, Steely Dan's Donald Fagen, actress/comedian Jane Lynch, Snarky Puppy Horns and the Hungarian Studio Orchestra.
"Playing live with a symphony orchestra and some of the greats in rock music was never anything I could even hope to dream of," Smalls said via a release. "But I can now!"
The bassist teased more guests to be announced as the four concerts draw near. The November tour is touted as a precursor to a more substantial trek coming in 2020.
