Lettuce

A project that formed in 1992, the members of Lettuce members met at summer music camp at the Berklee School of Music ��” and found in each other a common bond in all things Funk. They do not tour often, but when they do it is a big deal.

Eric Krasno (guitarist in Lettuce, as well as Soulive) describes the meeting process: “I hate to sound cheesy, but I fully feel it was destiny that this band came together,” says Krasno. “We were all in the same place, all the same age. None of the friends I grew up with were into music like I was. Then I went to Berklee that summer, and all these guys were into music the way I was, and it happened that we were all playing the right instruments to put together a band.”

Meeting up a few years later as full-time students of Berklee, the members took up right where they left off earlier ��” honing their craft on stages at any and every opportunity. In fact, their name is a play on the words “let us” as in “please let us play on stage with you” ��” which was a battle-cry of the band members, eager to share in making and sharing live music.

They have recently released their third album, “RAGE!”, which shows the growth of their jazz/funk skills ��” while staying true to the traditions of their influences: James Brown, P-Funk and Bootsy, TOP, Maceo and the Kingsmen, Clyde Stubblefield, Melvin Parker, and Jabo Starks, Herbie Hancock ,Sly, Larry Graham and the gang, Kool and the Gang(PRE JT Taylor) J Dilla, the Meters, AWB, Stevie, Donnie, Zapp, Prince, D'Angelo, Brides of Funkenstein, Parlet, Eric B & Rakim and others.
