CORONAVIRUS: Latest updates here.
Though popular success has largely eluded the Roots, the Philadelphia group showed the way for live rap, building on Stetsasonic's "hip-hop band" philosophy of the mid-'80s by focusing on live instrumentation at their concerts and in the studio. Don't miss your chance to catch the electric collective live when they head to a stage near you this year!
Releasing their first studio album in 2003, The Roots have garnered three Grammy awards for their jazz-infused and eclectic take on hip-hop. With more members than So Solid Crew (which is impressive) The Roots have become one of the most influential hip-hop groups in the world. With the band a part of the Philadelphia Music Alliance's Walk of Fame, The Roots continue to grow and develop their fan base, which are a mix of older 80s hip-hop heads to younger fans.
Performance date: 26 December 2021
