The legendary Roots band is coming to Western New York.  Here's what you need to know about the show.

I love The Roots.  I remember getting my first Roots CD and being mesmerized by their sound, especially Black Thought.  He is such a dope emcee, although he is often slept on.  I was excited when I found out they are coming to WNY. Now just to give you a warning, they will be performing at the Chautauqua Amphitheater, which is about an hour and a half from Buffalo. But hey, The Roots are worth the drive.

The show will take place on Saturday, August 21, 2021, at 7:30 pm. As I said, it will be held at the Chautauqua Institution Amphitheater, which is located at 31 Roberts Avenue in Chautauqua, New York. You must be fully vaccinated to attend the show. Ticket prices range from $75 to $225, depending on where you choose to sit.

Having previously released 12 projects, The Roots 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.” ~ Chautauqua Institution Amphitheater

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will also be performing. You can learn more about Trombone Shorty here.
