For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat. Formed at Boston’s Berklee School of Music, Lettuce cut their teeth playing in local clubs, steadily building a following that soon extended to cities across the country, and then, throughout the world. On their fourth studio album, Crush, Lettuce deepen that sound by channeling the sonic freedom and infectious energy of their incendiary live show. Rooted in psychedelia, ‘90s hip-hop and bass-heavy funk, Crush first came to life on the road, with the band developing new material and testing it out as they toured. Maneuvering the album’s kaleidoscopic sound with sophisticated ease and powerful synergy, Lettuce offer up everything from all-out party jams to headphone-ready journeys into space funk. With their unabashed love of live performance, we can’t wait to introduce this band to Fredericton!
