The Roots Picnic Brings Unforgettable Performances By Alicia Keys, Wu-Tang Clan To Bryant Park In New York
October 18, 2016 - Picnic Time
A star-studded retard celebration to remember.
If we were in a closeness of Midtown Manhattan on a initial weekend of October, afterwards we might’ve beheld a celebration function during Bryant Park. However, this wasn’t only any party, it was a initial Roots Picnic in New York City holding place Saturday, Oct 1 by Sunday, Oct 2. Although The Roots have hosted a eventuality in Philadelphia for a past 10 years, this was a initial time they brought a fun-filled festival to Manhattan. With food vendors and a packaged lineup of extraordinary musicians, we’re already counting down to a cruise in 2017.
Artists from varying genres took a theatre over a march of a two-day eventuality and had a full courtesy of festival goers. We got to knowledge jazzy tunes from nothing other than Trombone Shorty, whose musty wail riffs and grooving rope got us dancing via his whole set. Nile Rodgers’ rope Chic took us behind to a ‘70s, with their funk-infused disco beats as highlighted on their classical lane “Le Freak”. Iconic hip-hop organisation Wu-Tang Clan gave their all with a crowd-pleasing headlining set. The New York-based legends were also accompanied by Questlove and The Roots, that done it even better.
Another good impulse was when Alicia Keys showed adult for a special warn performance. Everyone mislaid their minds as her absolute voice and pleasing melodies echoed via Bryant Park. DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Roots’ co-founder Black Thought dazzled a throng with their enterprising sets and kept a good times rolling as a weekend went on.
All in all, The Roots Picnic had another successful weekend and we can’t wait until subsequent year. Check out the photos below!
