About This Episode

In today’s podcast Erick "Jesus" Coomes lends an insight into every funk bassist’s dream gig.

Known for their incendiary live shows and die-hard fans, revered funk collective Lettuce brings forth a new vitality to classic funk music. Comprised of a stellar group musicians (drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, bassist Erick "Jesus" Coomes, keyboardist and vocalist Nigel Hall, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet player Eric Bloom) the band continues to cement their reputation as an unmissable live act. Released last year via Lettuce Records, Witches Stew is their most recent album, which was recorded in tribute to Miles Davis.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • All about the Witches Stew live album.
  • How Lettuce first started out.
  • How they blend their killer tone.
  • About Erick’s studio work outside of Lettuce.
  • And much, much more…
