JOHN STARKS WELCOMES LETTUCE TO THE BROOKLYN BOWL STAGE ON FRIDAY NIGHT
New York City-based funk act Lettuce have never hidden their love for NBA team the New York Knicks. Guitarist Adam “Schmeeans” Smirnoff in particular can be found wearing Knicks gear at most gigs and Lettuce is one of the featured artists whose music can be heard during Knicks telecasts on the MSG cable network. So we can only imagine the band’s excitement at being introduced by Knicks legend John Starks at Brooklyn Bowl on Friday night.
Lettuce were bringing a long day at the Bowl to a close after helping to provide the music for the wedding of scene fixtures Joshua Raskin and Karen Dugan – a ceremony officiated by none other than George Porter Jr.
The funk act took the stage, complete with an altered version of The Shady Horns, with a bombastic version of “Zigowatt” following Starks’ introduction. Check it out:
