More Roots July 1, 8, 14, 21, 28, and August 4,10

The Roots are coming up from Philly every night to be Jimmy Fallons house band on late, late night. This gives us New Yorkers more chances to see the Roots live onstage. Can't get tickets to the TV show, don't worry they have a weekly jam at the Highline Ballroom. This jam is only $10 so get there early. the show is known to go on and on till the wee hours of the morning. On June 2nd the house was packed and had a line outside. We were walked right in and went right upstairs, the floor overflowing with hiphoppers. The stage was also overflowing with entertainers. They come from far and wide for the Roots. Sierra Leone, Belfast, an around the world jam. And around the boroughs....AG from show and AG came out to represent the Bronx. Q-Tip on stage at the end bring up memories of A Tribe Called Quest. The Roots holding it down all night with a smooth beats that just don't quiet. More to come from them now that they have made the NYC there second home.
Review from June 2nd.

The Roots are still at it on stage at the Highline Ballroom adding even more Jams this summer.
