For its second iteration, North Beach Music Festival plans to take over the Miami Beach Bandshell and adjacent Bandshell Park over three days—the 9th to the 11th—this December. Today, the festival shares its daily lineup, and starting tomorrow fans can secure single-day tickets for the event via northbeachmusicfestival.com.
Following their debut single “Nebula,” Colorado based electronic trio LVNDR.SOUND announces their latest single titled, “Virtual One” featuring Grammy award winning trumpet player Eric ‘Benny’ Bloom of famed group Lettuce. “Virtual One” is LVNDR.SOUND’s second single off of their forthcoming nine track album set to release later this year. “Virtual One” has a highly anticipated release date of Tuesday, August 2nd via Denver based record label Perception Records.
Chicago is excited to host the inaugural Sacred Rose Festival on August 26 - 28, 2022. A big reason for that excitement is that Lettuce will be bringing the funk. After the release of their new album Unify, Meagan Panici caught up with Adam Deitch from Lettuce to talk about the funk, the origin of Funkateer and how the last few years have gone for them in their artistic pursuits.

Shape-shifting producer and multi-instrumentalist Marvel Years has dedicated his career to redefining electronic music’s traditional genre boundaries. Melding guitar instrumentation with studio beatmaking, the Vermont-born, New York-based artist fuels his productions with soul and blues to create the raw, bass-heavy signature sound that’s landed him multiple performances at Red Rocks alongside ZHU, STS9, and Pretty Lights.
In this day and age, a singular, definitive stamp of approval is a hard thing to come by. Unless, of course, you’re the modern funk band Lettuce and THE Bootsy Collins steps into the studio to put his timeless spin on your new record—which is exactly what happened when the band was tracking “Keep That Funk Alive” from their upcoming album Unify.
Northlands is ramping up and promises to be the biggest event in the region, with 15 bands over multiple stages.
“We super excited about this year,” says Northlands Director Seth McNally. “We’ve curated a fantastic diversity of genres, basically an entire season worth of dynamic bands and lined them all up for one fantastic weekend of music.”
