Silver Wrapper and Jam present Lettuce with special guests Future Rock, Turbo Suit and more TBA on Thursday, December 31, 2015 at The Riviera Theatre. After celebrating their 20th anniversary as modern day rulers of old school funk, the Brooklyn-based juggernaut Lettuce is not showing any signs of slowing. "We’re more together and set to crush than ever before," says drummer and chief songwriter Adam Deitch of the all-star group that he and his accomplished band-mates cut their teeth with back in their Berklee School of Music days. That much history, along with the A-list crop of projects that each member has taken on away from Lettuce, gives the group a bottomless well of musical ideas and unrivaled chemistry—in fact, referring to themselves as a band of brothers. "I was in a practice room at 16 with these guys, and it all clicked," says lead bassist Erick "Jesus" Coomes. "We all felt rhythms in similar ways. We were all about the pocket from day one." After having the most successful year of the bands career in 2014, Lettuce is ready to rage.
Chicago’s electronic rock stalwarts Future Rock continue to pound out pulsating beats with the verocity of a 70′s era rock band. They are justly celebrated for legendary performances that turn crowds everwhere into a vast and energized dance floor, forcing even the palest and most resolutely hard-to-impress hipsters to call up their inner dance monsters. Live performances combine loops, samples and Mickey Kellerman’s keyboards with Darren Heitz’s drums plus Felix Moreno’s Larry Graham-style bass slapping to create an enormously powerful groove. Their light show is as good as their music, and their set have been known to inspire dance frenzies.
Turbo Suit is a vibrant voice in live electronic music. The versatile Indianapolis trio is comprised of David Embry on production and vocals, Nicholas Gerlach on tenor saxophone and EWI, and Jeff Peterson on drums.
Doors at 7:30 pm. Show at 8:30 pm. Ages 18+.
