For over a decade, The Roots have hosted one of the most anticipated and dynamic pre-Grammy events in LA. This year, they bring their week-long event to New York City. Every year, music’s best and brightest – newcomers and icons alike – pop-up unannounced to jam with the band and treat their audience to intimate, one of a kind performances. The showcases have brought some of the biggest names in music to the audience, and previous performances have included John Legend, Lenny Kravitz, Tori Kelly, Nelly, Ed Sheeran and more. For the first time, there will be a limited allotment of tickets exclusively for Citi cardmembers. Fans will be treated to legendary mash-ups, surprise performances and groundbreaking music.

 

ABOUT THE ROOTS

The legendary Roots Crew 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.” This brings the band’s GRAMMY nomination count to twelve. Additionally, “The Roots Picnic,” a yearly star-studded mix of musicians, has become a celebrated institution. The Roots were named one of the greatest live bands around by Rolling Stone and serve as the official house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Most recently, The Roots announced that they are developing an animated children’s series, along with a live action children’s series, in partnership with Amazon.
