LETTUCEFillmore AuditoriumSaturday, December 7Doors 7:00 PM / Show 8:00 PMTHIS SHOW IS AGES 16+.LIMITED $20.00 ADVANCE TICKETS! For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency. Comprised of a stellar group of musicians – Drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, keyboardist and vocalist Nigel Hall, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet player Eric Bloom—the band consistently displays an applauded mastery of their respective crafts. Blending together these talents in a sound distinctly their own, Lettuce has garnered praised by the likes of New York Times, NPR, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Relix, Red Bull Music, Live For Live Music, and more. According to the band, it is a sense of unity and togetherness that has much to do with the camaraderie that’s only intensified over the lifespan of the band. Formed in 1992, when several band members attended a summer program at Boston’s Berklee College of Music as teenagers, Lettuce was founded on a shared love of legendary funk artists like Earth, Wind & Fire and Tower of Power. After returning to Berklee as undergrads in 1994, Lettuce started playing in local clubs and steadily built up a following that soon extended to cities across the country and then throughout the world. Releasing their studio debut Outta Here in 2002, its follow-up Rage! in 2009, Fly in 2012, and Crush in 2015, the band has dedicated their time to balancing their prolific touring with involvement in a host of other musical endeavors. In recent years, Lettuce have watched their fanbase expand as they’ve hit bigger and bigger stages. Selling out shows across the country, they have truly earned their name as a can’t-miss live act. As bass player Erick “Jesus” Coomes puts it, “some of these shows we’ve played over the past couple years have been so amazing, it’s like you go home a different person.” TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, AUGUST 16 @ 10:00 AMat the Fillmore Auditorium Box Office or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
