Lettuce Announces Concert at The ELM in Bozeman

Grammy-nominated, psychedelic funk band, Lettuce, will make their debut at The ELM in Bozeman on Sunday, August 18, 2024.

Formed in 1992 by four Berklee College Of Music alumni, the now 6-member musical collective has become one of the leading figures in the world of modern funk music. In 2020, their album Elevate was nominated for a Grammy for Instrumental Album of the Year. Their 2015 album, Crush, features some of their most popular songs like “Phyllis,” “The Force” and “Get Greasy.”

Over ten albums in, Lettuce continue to cement their status as boundary-pushing innovators with one of their latest records, VIBE. Released digitally for the first time in 2023, VIBE is a single 48 minute continuous session of pure, free-flowing improvisation.

Montana has been fortunate to host multiple Lettuce shows over the years, and one particular performance stands out to us: their electrifying show at the Top Hat in 2015, where they played to a boisterous, sold-out crowd (photos).

Don’t miss your chance to experience their electrifying live performance, filled with infectious grooves, mesmerizing solos, and irresistible energy. Get your tickets early and be prepared for a night of unforgettable funk!

About Lettuce

Lettuce is (a) the prime ingredient in a salad, (b) a slang for cash, (c) a green herb that can be smoked, (d) a genre-busting six-member musical collective formed in 1992 by four alumni of the prestigious Berklee College Of Music, or (e) all of the above. If you answered “e,” then you’re in on the sheer magic of a band that both feeds the rich history of funk music and combines it with strains of hip-hop, rock, psychedelia, jazz, soul, jam, go-go, and the avant-garde.  

The Grammy Award-nominated six-piece is comprised of Adam Deitch [drums, percussion], Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff [guitar], Erick “Jesus” Coomes [bass], Ryan Zoidis [alto, baritone, tenor sax, Korg X-911], Eric “Benny” Bloom [trumpet, horns], and Nigel Hall [vocals, Hammond B-3, Rhodes, clavinet, keyboards].  To date, their discography includes Outta Here [2002], Rage! [2008], Fly [2012], Crush [2015], the EP Mt. Crushmore [2016], the live album Witches Stew [2017], Elevate [2019], Resonate [2020], Unify [2022], and now VIBE – a single 48 minute continuous session of pure, free-flowing improvisation, available digitally for the first time. 

With VIBE, Lettuce cement their status as boundary-pushing innovators over three decades into their lauded career, blurring lines and smashing up jazz chords, psychedelic passages, big horns, strains of soul and go-go, hip-hop elements for an uplifting, improvisational sound all their own. Ryan Zoidis explains, “we got into a vibe and hit record. 48 minutes went by like a blink of an eye. This is our first purely improvised recording. Nothing planned, nothing edited or overdubbed. This is a true spontaneous musical expression captured in its entirety.”

All together now… Lett us VIBE.
