You don’t need a seat on Jimmy Fallon’s couch to see The Roots this summer. The Grammy-award winning band will play a 25th anniversary concert this summer at Kastles Stadium on the Wharf. The showcase event is part of the 2013 DC Jazz Festival beginning in June.
“We are more excited than ever to play the DC Jazz Festival,” said The Roots. “It’s great when we can get together and really play music from our musical roots to an audience that can actually receive it! We are thrilled to be there.”
Snarky Puppy will open for the hip hop band. Tickets for the June 15th show will go on sale through Tickemaster at 10 a.m. on April 8.
