Today, Lettuce has announced the 2019 edition of their annual blowout at Morrison, CO’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, affectionately known as Rage Rocks. The latest edition of Rage Rocks, which marks Lettuce’s 6th visit to Red Rocks, is set to take place on Saturday, June 15th, 2019 and will feature two sets by the host band.

As always, Lettuce has some special tricks up their sleeve for their Red Rocks trip. In addition to support from TAUK and The Soul Rebels, Rage Rocks 2019 will see Lettuce use one of their two sets to reprise the Jerry Garcia Band tribute that wowed audiences at the 2018 edition of LOCKN’. The Jerry Garcia Band tribute set will also feature JGB organist Melvin Seals, who continues to keep the band’s spirit alive to this day with his own touring iteration of JGB.

Notes bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes in a press release, “The scenery and feeling at this divine location in Morrison, Colorado makes Red Rocks Amphitheatre a multi-sensory experience by itself. Add in two tablespoons of Jimi Hendrix‘s historic performances here, a half cup of The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia’s legendary shows at the venue, and a heaping quart of the Count Basie big band’s gigantic vibe and lingering presence that is emanating from the area and you have yourself one immense vortex of goodness. It is hands down one of our very favorite venues in the country and is incomparable to any other place. Long live Colorado and it’s band of merry pranksters.”

Adds drummer Adam Deitch, “We gonna funk up Dead Nation!”

Lettuce still has plenty on their plate before they make their way back to Red Rocks in June. Following their three-night New Year’s run in Texas, the band will mount an extensive tour spanning the majority of January and February followed by a special San Francisco residency with legendary jazz guitarist John Scofield in March. The Rage Rocks 2019 announcement press release also notes that Lettuce is in the process of recording a new studio album.
