LETTUCE will bring their psychedelic sonics, blissful grooves, jazz rhythms and hip-hop inspired beats to over 20 cities this winter including Pittsburgh on Thursday, January 17 at the Rex Theater with support from Ghost Note.
Lettuce’s latest album, Witches Stew, is the sextet’s contemporary jazz fusion tribute to Miles Davis. PRESS HERE to listen. Recorded live at the 2016 Catskill Chill, the album is an interpretive take on the historically experimental and lauded Bitches Brew era. In a similar vein of Thundercat, Flying Lotus and Kamasi Washington, Lettuce continues to push jazz fusion forward with this latest release, a tribute to one of the band’s biggest influences. Lettuce is currently working on a new studio album.
This morning (Dec. 3) the band announced their 4th annual Rage Rocks show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre will take place on Saturday, June 15th, 2019. The show, Lettuce’s sixth overall time playing the legendary Colorado venue, will feature two full sets from Lettuce, one of which will be a Jerry Garcia Band cover set, along with support from TAUK and The Soul Rebels.
Known for their incendiary live shows, extensive touring, die-hard fans, and massive two-decade career, Lettuce brings forth a new vitality to classic funk music. Together, the stellar group of musicians continues to earn their name as a can’t-miss live act and acclaimed masters of their craft. The members of Lettuce are also highly sought after musicians in hip-hop and pop. Adam Deitch is a member of Break Science and has played with everyone from John Scofield and 50 Cent to Talib Kweli and Wyclef Jean. Erick “Jesus” Coomes is a noted producer who has worked with Kanye West and Dr. Dre and was a touring bassist for Britney Spears and The Game. Blending together their talents in a sound distinctly their own, Lettuce has garnered praise by the likes of New York Times, NPR, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Relix, Red Bull Music and more.
