      Sol & Funk Root perform in Roanoke VA

      Sol & Funk Root is an official Home Grown Music Network band. “Sol's playing has been described as “musical glue," holding together many grooves and personalities. He has backed up legendary artists like Taj Mahal and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, opened for Robert Randolph, Wood Brothers, and has played with more obscure artists who have had unique perspectives and sounds. Though it all, he has learned many valuable lessons and is still able to hold on to the one thing that ties us all spiritually to one another — music.”- Jeff Reid - The Beat Magazine

      Sol & Funk Root will perform in Roanoke VA and the band will include legendary drummer King George Penn (has worked with Corey Harris, Jah Works, and others), super solid bassist Jake D, and Sol on guitar and vocals.

      Sol is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured around the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol and his band Funk Root create a unique blend of energetic rock, raw blues, reggae, and funk, all delivered with deep soul.

      Sol & Funk Root have performed at many premier festivals and venues across the east coast US, and the band includes musicians that have worked with Jah Works, Hobex, Corey Harris, Mike Zito, Squirrel Nut Zippers and more.

      Paying homage to the greats, Sol seeks to push musical boundaries and bring Roots Music to a new generation of listeners.
