Lettuce to perform at Snowshoe Resort
Genre-defying funk-jazz-soul-hip-hop-psychedelic-jam-art-rock-experimental-avant-garde music titans Lettuce released their sixth studio album, Elevate, on June 14 via their own Lettuce Records.
Produced by Lettuce and recorded at Colorado Sound Studio outside of Denver with legendary engineer Russ Elevado (D’Angelo, The Roots, Erykah Badu), the 11-track album features the critically-acclaimed songs “Krewe” and their jazzy take on the Tears For Fears hit “Everybody Wants To Rule The World.”
The six-member ensemble known for their incendiary live shows, extensive touring, die-hard fans, and massive two-decade-plus career – Grammy-nominated drummer and percussionist Adam Deitch, guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, Grammy Award-winning keyboardist and vocalist Nigel Hall, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Ryan Zoidis and Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Eric “Benny” Bloom – maintains its eclectic, free-wheeling approach while embracing a progressive and futuristic vibe, with elements of Pink Floyd, the Grateful Dead, Eno and Miles Davis, thanks to their love of improvisational music and arts.
The powerhouse collective has drawn acclaim from everyone from NPR, The New York Times, Parade and Consequence of Sound to BrooklynVegan, Earmilk, HipHopDX and Red Bull. They are also some of the most highly sought-after musicians in the industry, working and performing alongside some of music’s elite including Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, Justin Timberlake, Eminem, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Britney Spears, DJ Quik, Gary Clark Jr., Talib Kweli, Anthony Hamilton, Solange, and many more. Lettuce will celebrate the release of Elevate on an extensive U.S. tour this summer and fall, including a performance at the 4848 Festival at Snowshoe Mountain Resort on Friday, July 12 where they can be found on the Village Stage from 7:15-8:45pm.
