After a premier in New York City and screening on Jam Cruise, festival goers at this year’s Mountain Jam (June 2-6) will have the opportunity to screen Lettuce’s Let Us Play film documentary. Directed by Jay Sansone of Human Being Media and produced by Live for Live Music’s Kunj Shah, the film merges footage from live sets, recording sessions, interviews, and candid scenes from the road. Filmed over a six-month period, the footage chronicles the mechanics of improvisation and the artistry behind making a funk record. Viewers will get an in-depth diagnosis of the band, who they are as artists, how they work together and use their ridiculous expertise to come up with some of the funkiest music around.
In addition to a screening of Let Us Play, attendees at Mountain Jam will also have a chance to take part in other activities including a yoga session guided by Michael Franti and a presentation by photographer Jay Blakesberg on his 35 years in the music business, entitled Chasing The Light.
Lettuce will also be hosting the inaugural Fool’s Paradise (April 1-2) in St. Augustine, FL in a little over a month alongside Vulfpeck, GRiZ, Chris Robinson’s Soul Revue (ft. George Porter Jr., Eric Krasno, Nikki Glaspie & more), The Nth Power, and more. Tickets are on-sale now and can be purchased here.
