There’s no denying that Lettuce is one of the funkiest bands around town. The band continues to evolve and grow as they power on with their pursuit of putting on some of the best live performances.
Fortunately, fans will have a new means to go up close and personal with the funk rockers on November 17, 2015 at the Angelika Theater in NYC. While the first showing sold out in hours, tickets to the earlier screening are still available for a limited time. Get them here, and arrive at 7 PM sharp!
Let Us Play, a documentary produced by Live for Live Music, follows life for the band on the road and in the studio, leading up to the release of CRUSH (due out November 6th). The 35-minute 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 funk music.
Check out the trailer for Let Us Play, which stars Adam Deitch, Neal Evans, Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, Jesus Coomes, Ryan Zoidis, Eric Krasno, Benny Bloom, Nigel Hall and Alecia Chakour, right here:
The film was written and directed by Jay Sansone of Human Being Media, who previously created the Governors Ball and Bonnaroo official wrap-up after movies. The film was produced by Live For Live Music founder, Kunj Shah.
