“Roots & Rhythm has done some big projects lately working with Todd Edmunds (of the Tel Arc Artist Otis Taylor band) on tuba, JD Kelley on trombone, Rod Buckner (Buckner Funken Jazz) on trumpet and Mikey Smith on organ for a big New Orleans project. This was filmed and featured at the recent Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Pimps of Joytime after party. Roots & Rhythm is also a featured band of the Blue Roots Denver Blues & Jazz feature film to be shown in 5 screenings for the 2014 Five Points Jazz Festival Film Series. These screenings will feature Roots & Rhythm performing live before a screening at the prestigious McNichols Civic Center Building in downtown Denver. Roots & Rhythm really started making their mark when given the opportunity to be featured on Momma Kat’s Show for a 2 hour special on Roots & Rhythm and their original music. We also played her last show on KUVO 89.3 as a live performance and live broadcast which was also filmed for the Blue Roots Denver Blues & Jazz Film.”
