Funk Is Back! Lettuce to Stream Sold-Out Live Shows from Cervantes
The long-awaited return of Lettuce, the Grammy-nominated lords of cosmic, psychedelic jazz, hip-hop and funk, to live performance at Denver’s Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom for a limited run of socially-distanced shows on February 18 and 19 was, unsurprisingly, an instant sellout. But fans who got shut out of the in-person experience can still purchase tickets to be there virtually.
Presented by Live For Live Music and streaming exclusively via Mandolin, the four-show event will feature one early and one late show per night, giving fans the opportunity to quadruple the fun. Tickets for the Livestream can be purchased for individual shows, sets of two, or the entire weekend series. The broadcasts will remain available for ticket holders for 48 hours after the initial performances along with the opportunity to buy limited-edition event merchandise.
The concerts will be the first time bandmates Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff (guitar), Erick “Jesus” Coomes (bass), Adam Deitch (drums), Nigel Hall (keys), Eric “Benny” Bloom (trumpet), and Ryan Zoidis (saxophone) have played live together since March, when their European tour was cut short due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The band is also reuniting to record new music to follow up albums Resonate and Vibe, both released in 2020. With the Cervantes shows, Lettuce promises fans an immersive experience with unique sets featuring unreleased music along with old favorites and no song repeats.
