The Concrete Roots is a reggae band based in Chicago.. This group is composed of five musicians from various backgrounds that have a very deep respect for all sub-genres of reggae music and culture. Their eclectic sound combines roots-reggae-dub with soul and hip-hop. Since 2012 they have been playing live shows at traditional and unique venues throughout the Midwest. They released their debut album in July of 2016 and have developed a following across the nation.
