GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum group The Rootsreveal the return of their legendary annual The Roots GRAMMY Jam Session on Saturday February 4 at The El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Sponsored by Hilton, The Roots GRAMMY Jam Session remains nothing short of legendary for its spontaneity and once-in-a-lifetime collaborations. For nearly two decades, the group hosted what remains one of the hottest pre-GRAMMY® events in Los Angeles. However, 2023 marks the first GRAMMY Jam Session in three years and promises to come back with a bang. The evening will open with a set from Adam Blackstone and his Legacy Experience and a myriad of special guests that will be revealed very soon. The Roots’ award-winning Tour Manager Tina Farris once again assumes the role of the evening’s producer. In the past, the guys have performed alongside everyone from John Legend, Queen Latifah, Jamie Foxx, Ty Dolla $ign, and Lenny Kravitz to Ed Sheeran and Miley Cyrus.
Expect an unforgettable night with The Roots and friends.
Stay tuned for more from The Roots soon.
ABOUT THE ROOTS:
The Roots have consistently elevated music and culture as one of the most influential and impactful hip-hop collectives of all time. Founded by Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum group went from rapping on Philadelphia corners all the way to gigs at The White House, a longtime stint as the “house band” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and billing atop their own annual festival The Roots Picnic. Among numerous classics, they changed hip-hop forever with 1999’s platinum Things Fall Apart—which Rolling Stone named one of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” and Pitchfork graded “9.4-out-of-10.” Their GRAMMY® Awards include “Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group” for “You Got Me,” “Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance” for “Hang On in There,” and “Best R&B Album” for Wake Up. As a live phenomenon, The Roots made history as the “first hip-hop group to perform at Lincoln Center,” and Rolling Stone lauded them as one of the “Twenty Greatest Live Acts in the World.” Black Thought and Questlove served as executive producers of the acclaimed AMC documentary series, Hip-Hop: The Songs That Shook America.
