Roots Rock Society, reggae
Thursday,
July 19
6 – 8 p.m.

International recording artists and award-winning ensemble Roots Rock Society was formed in 1986 by brothers Stann and Sinko Champion. The band’s one-of-a-kind sound combines the rhythms of the African diaspora, such as reggae, calypso, compa, and zouk with lyrics that reflect family, culture, heritage, and community. From the beginning, Stann’s goal was to maintain his African-Caribbean-American heritage and culture through voice, music, and dance in order to heal and reach with sound and movement. Nominated for the Chicago Music Awards’ Best Reggae Band in 1999, Roots Rock Society has performed with Ziggy Marley at the Milwaukee Summerfest and the Bellamy Brothers at the  Minnesota State Fair. Having opened for performers such as Natalie Cole and with their self-released CD Again receiving airplay on 200 radio stations from Papua New Guinea to Africa and Europe, it’s no wonder that critics have named Roots Rock Society one of the nation’s best.
