“They are not merely the world’s best hip-hop band—but one of the great musical outfits of our time.” — Rolling Stone

Formed in 1987 in Philadelphia, PA, The Roots have become one of the best known and most respected hip-hop acts in the business. Named one of the “50 Greatest Live Acts” by Rolling Stone, The Roots became the official house band on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” where they currently perform every Monday-Friday.
