The Funk Sessions Ft. Members Of Lettuce, The Motet, TAUK, Robert Glasper Experiment @ Cervantes
January 29 @ 8:00 pm
Live for Live Music is proud to announce The Funk Sessions, a new monthly residency based in Denver, CO at Cervantes’ Other Side. The Funk Sessions will feature a rotating cast of players from across the funk and jam scenes playing in unique and creative lineups. Each month will center around a host artist and a hand-picked, curated lineup of colleagues, friends, and musicians they admire.
The first edition of this new residency will take place on Tuesday, January 29th and will be hosted by Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, guitarist for the iconic modern funk band, Lettuce. He’ll be joined by a cast of hand-picked all-star players. Staying true to the Denver music scene, local heroes Joey Porter and Garrett Sayers from The Motet will hold down keys and bass respectively. Fellow Lettuce member Eric “Benny” Bloom will make his way to Denver to add his trumpet to the mix, and high-energy drummer and sometimes-vocalist Isaac Teel from TAUK will also be in the house. The band will be rounded out by special guest Casey Benjamin, saxophonist and vocalist from GRAMMY-winning Jazz/R&B fusion group the Robert Glasper Experiment.
