Renowned for their energetic live shows, Lettuce are a seven-piece Boston collective who describe
themselves as ‘modern day rulers of old-school funk.’ The original line-up of guitarists Eric Krasno
and Adam ‘Shmeeans’ Smirnoff, keyboardist Neal Evans, bassist Erick Coomes, saxophonist Ryan
Zoidis and drummer Adam Deitch first came together during a music program at the Berklee College
of Music in 1992. Inspired by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Earth, Wind and Fire, and Tower of Power,
they then began performing under the guise of Lettuce – named after their habit of asking various
bars and clubs if they would ‘let us play’ – two years later. The band continued to sell Lettuce tickets
for shows across the US throughout the 90s, gradually building up loyal followings in the likes of New
York, San Francisco and Chicago. But it took them until 2001 to record their first studio effort, Outta
Here, which was then supported by the release of Lettuce tickets for a national tour. Recorded in
front of fans with Lettuce tickets in Japan, 2003’s Live at Blue Note Tokyo proved to be their last
official release for half a decade as the band pursued various side projects. Krasno and Evans formed
jazz/organ trio Soulive, Zoidis played in both The Shady Horns and the Rustic Overtones, while Deitch
produced records for the likes of John Scofield, Wyclef Jean and Robert Randolph & the Family Band.
Featuring cover versions of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up” and Charles Wright’s “Express Yourself,”
2008’s Rage! saw the group return to the fold in style, and Lettuce tickets were subsequently
snapped up for its accompanying tour. In 2011, the band performed to thousands of fans with
Lettuce tickets for the Royal Family Ball tour which also featured Soulive, and their former part-time
member, trumpeter Rashawn Ross. In 2012, the group celebrated their 20th anniversary with the
release of their third full-length LP, Fly!, and Lettuce tickets for another national tour. After fans
snapped up Lettuce tickets for their performance on the 2013 Jam Cruise with Soul Rebels Brass
Band, the group released a limited edition ‘45 with Brooklyn blues vocalist Alecia Chakour (“Don’t Be
Afraid To Try”), and Lettuce tickets for co-headlining shows with New York electronic duo Break Science and Colorado funk outfit The Motet.
