May 17th - The Roots
The brainchild of childhood friends Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, The Roots began their career playing bucket drums and freestyling on the streets. Fast forward a few decades, and The Roots was named one of the greatest live acts by Rolling Stone. Their career has evolved to include a weekly gig as the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, hosting sold-out jam sessions across country, and consistently churning out Grammy®-nominated albums.
