For the first time, GRiZ and funk powerhouse Lettuce will join forces at the inaugural Fool’s Paradise in St. Augustine, Florida on April 1 and 2.
The full band collaboration will take place during GRiZ‘s Friday evening set on April 1, closing out night one of the two-day event.
Twenty-five-year-old Grant Kwiecinski, better known as “GRiZ,” plays the saxophone while producing funk and electro-soul. An experienced collaborator, he has joined forces with many fellow DJs, including Gramatik, ExMa and Big Gigantic.
Lettuce has supported Pretty Lights as Derek Vincent Smith’s live band in the past, but this is a first-time collaboration for GRiZ.
With the release of Crush in November, Lettuce has been non-stop touring and gaining fans throughout the country. Their music combines elements of funk, hip-hop, jazz and soul. This is not sit-in-your-seat music. These boys will have you gliding on across the sand to their brassy groove with two full sets at Fool’s Paradise.
The destination event will also featuring performances from Vulfpeck, Chris Robinson’s Soul Revue (ft. George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, Eric Krasno, Nikki Glaspie, Neal Casal & the Shady Horns), Goldfish, The Nth Power, Break Science and more.
The two-day beach event also features artist-led excursions, musical workshops, yoga and activities just steps from the ocean.
