The Roots Crew where you at?! If you’ve never seen The Roots live (and as much as I love them as the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, that does not count), you will not want to miss this performance. This show will push me into double digit Roots shows and I wish I could say I have been to more. Each and every time I see The Roots, the shows get better. They are filled with sweet music, infinite energy and flat out what a dance party should be, nonstop from beginning to end.
While some members have come and gone (Scott Storch, Rahzel), ?uestlove and Black Thought have been at the forefront and continuously produce some of the best music around (just listen to their collaboration Betty Wright & The Roots which was nominated for a GRAMMY earlier this year). And besides their original works, nobody does it better than The Roots when it comes to a marathon melody session running the gamut on songs from every genre. Add in ?uestlove leading Superjam and whoa, it’s going to be a special one on the farm. And since it’s Bonnaroo and traditionally there are some surprises, I personally would love to see Cody Chesnutt appear for “The Seed.” Probably won’t happen but I can dream.
