A mutual love of old school funk bonded a group of Berklee College of Music students back in 1992, and now, more than 20 years later, Lettuce has evolved into one of music's most pervasive modern funk ensembles. Coupling studio releases Outta Here (2002), Rage! (2008) and Fly (2012) with electrocuting live performances across the nation and overseas, there's no denying that Lettuce is one of the tightest groove juggernauts on the scene today. "We play music that reflects our way of life,” says bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, who is joined by fellow Royal Family ragers: guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, keyboardist Neal Evans, vocalist Nigel Hall, drummer Adam Deitch and the Shady Horns featuring Ryan Zoidis on alto sax, Eric Bloom on trumpet and James Casey on tenor sax. "We love that nasty funk, that undeniable funk... the funk of the ages."
