While New Haven music venue Pacific Standard Tavern (or PST for short) has been seeing it’s one-off shows from pretty big artists lately, many local names have been keeping the spot one of the best to catch live music on a weekly basis. Those are names like Kung Fu guitarist Tim Palmeri and Adrian Tromontano of Kung Fu (and PST staple band The Z3) but also without a doubt most recently names like Max Schiavone, Paul Harris, and Adam Ives. These performers (along with a few others) are the founders of a weekly rotating live jam session experience known as Member?
Across their many dozens of self-hosted nights at the New Haven music hub, Member? has performed full-length tributes to everybody from The Police to Rage Against The Machine to Jamiroquai. While PST has been the homestay for the collaborative musical project, Member? has begun to perform out at other venues around Connecticut state, such as their recent show at La Boca in Middletown where they took the stage with members of Brooklyn jamband Cousin Earth.
For their most recent performance, seven musicians making up this week’s jam session managed to very closely replicate the sound and experience of world famous funk band Lettuce–tributing that group’s unique blend of modern hip and hop and Eddie Hazel-inspired psychedelic perfectly. Also in true Lettuce style, the band executed songs with a sense of patience, honing in impressively on the many single solos taken throughout the night.
