Why See The Roots?
Though popular success has largely eluded the Roots, the Philadelphia group showed the way for live rap, building on Stetsasonic's "hip-hop band" philosophy of the mid-'80s by focusing on live instrumentation at their concerts and in the studio. 2018 sees the group release their 12th album, End Game.
Releasing their first studio album in 2003, The Roots have garnered three Grammy awards for their jazz-infused and eclectic take on hip-hop. With more members than So Solid Crew (which is impressive) The Roots have become one of the most influential hip-hop groups in the world. With the band a part of the Philadelphia Music Alliance's Walk of Fame, The Roots continue to grow and develop their fan base, which are a mix of older 80s hip-hop heads to younger fans.

Book of Mormon
The perfect Broadway musical. Behold The Book of Mormon. An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything.
