Lettuce (no, not the produce) headlines a North Shore gig for two nights, and fans of classic, yet contemporary and unique, funk will definitely want to be there.

“For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat,” states the group’s online biography.

On Wednesday, March 15, and Thursday, March 16, the seven-member band will perform at Crystal Bay Casino, bringing with them their distinctive sound.

“We’ve all noticed that our music goes into a lot of different directions on stage, and we wanted to capture that in a way that we never really have before,” bassist Erick Coomes said.

Lettuce’s “Mt. Crushmore” — the group’s latest release — dropped in November and followed the band’s already-existing four studio albums.

“Formed in 1992, when several band members attended a summer program at Boston’s Berklee College of Music as teenagers, Lettuce was founded on a shared love of legendary funk artists like Earth, Wind & Fire and Tower of Power,” continues the bio.

Don’t miss Lettuce at Crystal Bay Casino — tickets for each concert are available for $27 in advance and $30 on the day of the show.

Purchases are conducted through the venue’s website, http://www.crystalbaycasino.com, where additional information can be found.

Crystal Bay Casino is located at 14 NV 28.

Following the two-night Lettuce gig, The String Cheese incident takes the Crystal Bay stage from March 17-19.
