Now, Let us not forget Lettuce's 2018 Lockn’ Music Festival Jerry Garcia Band set. Due to the overwhelming amount of hype and love that set received, Lettuce figured to give the people what they want and reprise that set at their Rage Rocks show. Clearly, an already amazing set, but just to amp it up, even more, they added the addition of legendary keyboardist Melvin Seals. Melvin Seals, long time Jerry Garcia Band member and what we all know as a pioneer to jam band music as we know it. His happy attitude made us all smile, and his charisma and chemistry with Lettuce was a perfect fit.
