If you went to Stir Cove on Saturday night expecting a nice little show from that Jimmy Fallon house
band, you just may have been a bit surprised! While Questlove and his entourage have achieved great
fame with that gig, they are in fact quite the funk and hip hop kind of band. We are very fortunate to
have experienced their talents in this neck of the woods!
For 90 minutes on a beautiful summer night, they thrilled and chilled us with their brand of rap and jazz
that has been met with much recognition and acclaim. There is quite the menagerie of instruments in
this ensemble of artists – everything from the tuba to the twinkled ivories – and somehow it all comes
together in a great sound. The crowd was way into the scene, and the audience was a nice blend of
generations. It seemed everyone was on their feet at one point in time and there was even a bit of
dancing in the aisles. The Grammy winning band is among the best in their genre, and they have
released eleven albums over the years. Gotta love that groove – and gotta thank the folks that brought
The Roots to the Cove so we could!
There is still plenty of music coming this summer, so I strongly urge you to get your fix at the Cove. Just
go to www.stircove.com and find the sound that is gonna make your toes tap or your head bob. It’ll be
the best investment you’ll make this summer, I guarantee it!
