LETTUCE



lettucefunk.com

Lettuce is a seven person all-star collective who sprouted in the fertile environment of Berklee College of Music in Boston twenty years ago, where all members met at a summer music program when they were still in their teens. They came together through their mutual love of pure funk (Tower of Power, Earth, Wind & Fire, Herbie Hancock, Sly & The Family Stone, The Meters, etc.) and were fond of showing up at underground jazz clubs with their instruments and seeing if they could get some stage together hence asking the question “will you LET US play?” and the rest as they say, is history. Lettuce also began the careers of a few notable world-class musicians in guitarist Eric Krasno (Soullive) and drummer/producer Adam Deitsch (John Scofield band). The group is rounded out by Krasno’s Soullive bandmate, keyboardist Neal Evans, along with bassist Erick “E.D.” Coomes,  saxophonists Sam Kininger and Ryan Zoidis, as well as second guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff. The group is part of the Royal Family Collective, and while all the players in the band have other main gigs Lettuce remains a welcome outlet for each. As Krasno says “It’s all about good friends getting together to play the kind of music that made us all want to become musicians in the first place”. Lettuce brings the funk, hard-hitting, genuine funk and there will be plenty of it on hand in Quincy, especially in the late night Funk ‘N Jam House as Lettuce will be part of the first Royal Family Ball gala at High Sierra.
