The Roots, one of hip-hop music’s greatest groups and the house band for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” will perform at 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1 at the Chevrolet Music Fair at Chevy Court. Concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet and are free with admission to the Fair.
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 12. 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.
