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. Having blown up stages from coast to coast last year, ranging fromThe Fillmore in San Francisco to Terminal 5 in NYC, Bonnaroo to Pemberton and all points in-between, Lettuce is poised to continue their rapid growth throughout 2014."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 chemistryin fact, referring to themselves as a band ofbrothers.

"Lettuce is like a Learjet that wasn't getting clearance from the tower," says Jesus. "But we're done just rolling around on the runway." They're not asking for permission, so put your tray tables in their full, upright and locked position. This plane's itching for lift off. Lettuce released a limited edition '45 featuring "Don't Be Afraid To Try" with singer Alecia Cha
