GRiZ Teaming Up with Lettuce for Fool’s Paradise Collaboration
Attention Ladies and Gentle-fools! We have a Fool’s Paradise collaboration announcement coming in HOT. Fool’s Paradise has announced that electronic-funk innovator GRiZ will be teaming up with Lettuce for a full band throw down during GriZ’s Friday night set on April 1.
GRiZ is no stranger to the collaboration game. His critically acclaimed 2015 album “Say It Loud,” features appearances from the likes of Talib Kweli, The Floozies and Ivan Neville, among others. Most recently, it appears that he has been working with one of the hottest jazz/funk horn units out New Orleans, Naughty Professor’s “Naughty Horns.” There has not been any news about what they might be cooking up, but whatever is, it is going to be hot.
This will be the first time GRiZ and Lettuce have shared the stage, but he has previously produced a remix of Lettuce’s tune “Slippin’ Into Darkness,” and has worked with Lettuce trumpet-master Eric Benny Bloom on his track “Feelin’ High.”
The inaugural Fool’s Paradise Festival will be taking place in St. Augustine, FL on April 1-2. The full line up includes Lettuce, The Nth Power, Chris Robinson’s Soul Revue featuring George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, Nikki Glaspie, Eric Krasno, Neal Casal & The Shady Horns, Goldfish, GRiZ and Vulfpeck. There are also two late-night shows scheduled, featuring Vulfpeck and Break Science on Friday, April 1 and Goldfish with a Fools for Funk Supergroup on Saturday, April 2.
