Brooklyn based funk outfit, Lettuce, has been one of the pioneers in modern funk and jam music. The band’s skill and taste, combined with their ability to blend historic and popular music aesthetics together puts them in the spotlight for aspiring bands. The spotlight is nothing new to Lettuce and they are perpetually growing a global fan base. In fact, members Adam Deitch (drums/percussion), Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff (guitar), Erick “Jesus” Coomes (bass), Nigel Hall (keyboards/vocals), Ryan Zoidis (saxophone) and Eric “Benny” Bloom (trumpet) have been doing this for 25 years, scoring Grammy’s and working with some of the biggest forces in music such as Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, Kanye West, and Stevie Wonder, to name a few. It’s no wonder the glamor for more original Lettuce music after a three-year wait was at an all time high. That time has come with their new album, Elevate.
