Looking for a fun way to ring in 2019? How about hanging out with one of the most widely acclaimed hip-hop groups in the world? On December 31st, The Roots will perform a very special show at Coca-Cola Roxy Theatre in Atlanta. You’ll definitely want to be there in anticipation of the ball dropping at midnight!
Formed in 1987 in Philadelphia, the legendary Roots Crew consists of Black Thought (MC), Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson (drums), Kamal Gray (electronic keyboards), F. Knuckles (percussion), Captain Kirk Douglas (electronic guitar), Damon Bryson (sousaphone) and James Poyser (electronic keyboard).
Having previously released twelve projects, The Roots have become one of the best known and most respected hip-hop acts in the business, winning four Grammys, including Best R&B Album for Wake Up!, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for “Hang in There” (with John Legend) and Best Group or Duo R&B Vocal Performance for “Shine.” The ensemble was most recently nominated for “Best Rap Album” for the 2011 release of undun. This brings the band’s GRAMMY nomination count to twelve.
Additionally, The Roots have also become the faces of Philly’s Fourth of July Jam, an annual concert held during the Fourth of July with the biggest names in music, and The Roots Picnic, a yearly star-studded mix of musicians, that has become a celebrated institution during awards season. Recently The Roots were named one of the greatest live bands around by Rolling Stone, became the official house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where they currently perform every Monday through Friday. The Roots celebrated the release of their 11th studio album …and then you shoot your cousin in May 2014.
