About the Roots (Hip-hip Band)
The Roots is a neo-soul/hip-hop ensemble founded by Ahmir Thompson (Questlove) and Tariq Trotter (Black Thought) in 1987. The Roots was formed during Ahmir’s and Tariq’s time at the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts. Initially performing on the streets where Ahmir would play drums on a bucket while Tariq would rap to his beats, their first gig took place in 1989 at a local show. Back then they called themselves, ‘Radio Activity’ and after several name changes adopted the name ‘the Square Roots.’ From 1992 onwards, they removed ‘square’ and took on the name ‘The Roots.’
The Music of David Bowie featuring the Roots!
Currently, the Roots’ lineup comprises eight members; Kamal Gray on keyboards, F. Knuckles playing percussion, Captain Kirk Douglas on guitars, Tuba Gooding, Jr. on sousaphone, James Poyser as keyboardist and Mark Kelley on bass apart from the two founding members, Questlove and Black Thought. Popular for performing as the house band on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ between 2009 and 2014 and moving to ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ as of 2014, the Roots have grown to be recognized as ‘hip-hop music’s first legitimate group.’ Apart from this, the Roots have also released 14 studio albums, winning 3 Grammys for songs ‘You Got Me’, ‘Hang On in There’ and ‘Wake Up!’. Fans can now watch as the Roots perform David Bowie’s greatest hits live. Get the Roots New York tickets.
