The funk band Lettuce has been carving stone cold grooves since 1992, when its members met at a summer program at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Reviewing the band live for The New York Times in 2009, Nate Chinen wrote, “The sharpness of the arrangements recalled 1970s funk workhorses like Tower of Power.”
Over the last two decades, Boston-via-Brooklyn jam band Lettuce have gained plenty of notoriety around the festival circuit. They’ve performed everywhere from Pemperton to Bonnaroo, even performing as the backing band at the 2013 hip hop Superjam. The band members have also found additional success supporting numerous mainstream artists: drummer Adam Deitch has played sticks for acts like Pretty Lights and Talib Kweli, guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff toured with Lady Gaga, trumpeter Rashawn Ross is a member of Dave Matthews Band, and bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes recently played on Dr. Dre’s long-awaited Compton.
The Jam Band's new album, "Crush" will be available everywhere on November 6th through Lettuce Records.
