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.

2018 saw TAUK release their most adventurous, emotionally expansive work to date. An early-2018 EP, Shapeshifter I: Construct was followed by a full album Shapeshifter II: Outbreak. The new album picks up where its predecessor’s narrative thread left off, and broadens the band's sonic palette to include a vast spectrum of synth sounds and programmed effects. The band took the new songs out on the road in the fall and released nearly every show via their partnership with Nugs.net for sale and streaming through the Nugs subscription platform.

Enter TAUK, a mind-melting, continually moving, an ever-evolving force of nature that has taken the jam community by storm with their complex time signatures and catchy, melodic grooves.
