“Lonnie’s one of the funkiest bass players alive today – I’ve totally copped stuff off him…” ~Flea, Red Hot Chili Peppers (Bass Player Magazine)

Weapon of Choice first hit the scene in the early 90s founded by South Central Los Angeles native Lonnie “Mega Nut” Marshall, lyricist, vocalist and extraordinary bass player. Shortly after hitting the scene, Pearl Jam founding member and guitar player, Stone Gossard, signed the band to his Sony Records record label, Loosegoove Records. The revolving door of some of the worlds funkiest players has included impressive line ups over the years, notably Keefus Ciancia (Emmy nominated musician, composer and music producer), Tom-bone Ralls, Finn Hammer, Mark Cross, Audra Cunningham, Philip “Fish” Fisher (Fishbone, Justin Timberlake, Little Richard, Christina Aguilera), Arik Marshall (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Macy Gray), Matt Chamberlain (Critters Buggin, David Bowie, Elton John, Fiona Apple, Sound Garden), Mary Harris (Michael Franti & Spearhead, Fishbone), Lamont Sydnor (Jacksons, Sly Stone, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars), Norwood Fisher (Fish Bone, Trulio Disgracias) and many more. They play a mixture of funk, rock, alternative, hip hop, jazz and reggae called Nutmeg, a term created by Marshall.

Marshall’s brand of experimental, AlterNuTiVe fUNk takes center stage with his solo work, recording and performing as Mega Nut. Released on New Years Eve 2020, Mega Nut’s two new singles “Reel Deel Feel” and “Wiggle” dropped with the ball on all the streaming services. The singles join Mega Nut’s other releases, including 2019’s Bud*time Stories in the Green Light District EP.
