Lettuce: Vegetable or Funk Party?

Don’t be fooled by the name, for Lettuce is not simply the produce you may think it is.

Since originally budding in Boston, Massachusetts in the early ‘90s, the band Lettuce has blossomed into something special. The band spoke for itself through live performances, and through mostly word of mouth to thank for their growth, they have thrived into something we can all bite into.

Essentially, you can think of Lettuce as a melting pot of a jam band. Each of the seven notable musicians, of which Lettuce is made up of, no doubt fills the group and their live concerts with energy, creativity and soul. With inspirations rooting in bands like Earth, Wind and Fire and Tower of Power, Lettuce is certainly worth the hype. 

Act after act, they have become an incredibly popular and prominent band, specifically in the jam band community. Appearing at many festivals with bands like Umphrey’s McGee, the Motet, Lotus, STS9, the Floozies and tons more, they have succeeded at creating a noteworthy name for themselves.

Just this summer so far they have already racked up a pretty impressive lineup. Making appearances at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Fool’s Paradise, Summer Camp Music Festival and many more, they are eager to still hit even more events this summer. Headed for, to name a few, Camp Bisco, Lollapalooza, LOCKN’, they are ready to blow you the funk away!

Each member’s individual talent and passion contribute to the funk party that they bring. Sound pretty groovy so far? Well it doesn’t stop there. Not only do they come with strings and drums, but horns and keys, too! The blend of all these joyous deep sounds with the groups love for music and performing will put you on your feet so bring your groove shoes and prepare to dance.

Why would you want to miss a night full of dancing and Lettuce’s first time headlining a Long Island concert? Come get your dose of funk this summer at the Paramount on Friday, July 8th and get up to get the funk down.
