The members of Lettuce spent the week before Mardi Gras in New Orleans playing together in a variety of configurations. Last Wednesday, Lettuce drummer Adam Deitch and singer Nigel Hall played with Papa Mali during his jam session at Tipitina’s, and last Friday the two musicians joined Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno, New Orleans guitarist Ian Neville and bassist Nick Daniels for a Dr. Claw performance at the Blue Nile. Hall headlined the Blue Nile the following night with a band that featured Deitch, Krasno (on bass) and at one point special guest George Porter Jr. . Finally, on Sunday Krasno’s band Chapter 2 played the Blue Nile and welcomed Porter to the stage once again.
