Funk Engine Play Lettuce with special guests Pat Powell and Arcing Wires VIVID MUSIC
Friday, June 15th, 2018
8:30 PM
Venue 505
Surry Hills, Australia
As part of the Sydney light festival VIVID, Funk Engine plans to take on the music of one of the world’s top modern funk bands, Lettuce. Formed in 1992 in Boston at the Berkley College of music, Lettuce have gone from playing in local clubs to selling out stadiums across the States with the release of five studio albums and two live albums. Their latest studio album Crush (2015) peaked at No.1 on the U.S jazz charts. The members are also prolific studio/touring musicians playing with the likes of John Schofield, John Cleary and the Dave Matthews band. With a tour to Australia looking unlikely to happen anytime soon, Funk Engine (the Sydney funk aficionados) hope to give audiences an introduction to the music of funk masters who have brought new vitality to the genre. With an expanded line up and special guests Pat Powell and Arcing Wires, expect to hear some of the grooviest tunes on the planet played by one of our towns best live acts.
