      Lettuce

      with Greyhounds
      Known for their incendiary live shows, extensive touring, die-hard fans, and massive two-decade career, Lettucehave brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspiredurgency. Their latest offering, Witches Stew [Lettuce Records]is a contemporary jazz fusion album that pays tributeto the lateMiles Davis, one ofLettuce's biggest and most beloved influences. An interpretive take on the historicallyexperimental and lauded Bitches Brew era, Witches Stew is a collection of seven songs, handpicked by the band andwas recorded at the2016 Catskill ChillinLakewood, PA.Released on Halloween Day 2017, the EP brings forth aneerie, ethereal, and psychedelic reimagining to what was one of the most impactful periods in Miles legacy, furtherdistinguishing the band for their technical mastery and improvisational, rhythmic genius.To further pay tribute to their hero, Lettuce released the first single from the EP "Shhh / Peaceful" on the26thanniversary of Miles' passing. Keeping tempo with steady percussion, the track features an otherworldlysound which is echoed by distant horns and tranquil guitar riffs. As a whole the album seamlessly floats from trackto track, almost as if telling a story in a language unique to each listener. Taking cue from Miles himself, the brassycrooning of the trumpet threads together each song into a cohesive body of work and brings the listener on ajourney that only Lettuce could navigate.Comprised of a stellar group musicians - DrummerAdam Deitch, guitarist Adam Smirnoff, bassistErick "Jesus"Coomes, keyboardist and vocalistNigel Hall, saxophonistRyan Zoidis, and trumpet playerEric Benny Bloom - themembers of Lettuce are highly sought after musicians who, together, continue to earn their name as masters oftheir craft.Blending together these talents in a sound distinctly their own, they have garnered praised by the likesof New York Times, NPR, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Relix, Red Bull Music and more.According to the band, it is a sense of unity and togetherness that has much to do with the camaraderie thats onlyintensified over the lifespan of the band. Formed in 1992, when several band members attended a summerprogram at Bostons Berklee College of Music as teenagers, Lettuce was founded on a shared love of legendary funkartists like Earth, Wind & Fire and Tower of Power. After returning to Berklee as undergrads in 1994, Lettucestarted playing in local clubs and steadily built up a following that soon extended to cities across the country andthen throughout the world. Releasing their studio debut Outta Here in 2002, its follow-up Rage! in 2009, Fly in2012, Crush in 2015 and Mt. Crushmore EP in 2016, the band has dedicated their time to balancing their prolifictouring with involvement in a host of other musical endeavors.In recent years, Lettuce have watched their fanbase expand as theyve hit bigger and bigger stages. Selling outshows across the country, they have truly earned their name as a cant-miss live act. As bass player Erick JesusCoomes puts it, some of these shows weve played over the past couple years have been so amazing, its like yougo home a different person.The band is currently spreading their sonic hijinks and soulful vibrations across the country on their Beyond theClouds 2018 headline tour. Comprised of 23-dates, the tour will lead the band to their third annual Rage Rocksshow, which will take place at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday, June 8, 2018.
