Hello family! In case you're unsure...that means you...yes, even you rude person;) I want to remind you all of a very special event, ROOTS FAMILY REUNION, this Sat. July 21st at LITTLEFIELD (622 Degraw st.) 7pm.

If you are a part of this community & want to celebrate how awesome this neighborhood is then make a point to be there! Bring all your family & friends along as well.

ROOTS FAMILY REUNION started a year ago as a way to say thanks to everyone, artist, musicians & regulars, for helping make the Roots Cafe community such a special thing. Without you guys we wouldn't be here or have a reason to gather & celebrate.

This year we have lined up some amazing talent to share their skills with all of you. Visual artist & musicians alike including: Dan Bindschedler, Matt Frye, That Moon, Young Decades, Brother/Sister, The Alex Mallett band, Gypsy George & the open road love affair, Chris Q. Murphy & the fiendish thingies, & Barnyard Brothers. Hosted by rhyme master & M.C., Rabbi Darkside!

This is a night of art showin', music playin' beer drinkin' & foot stompin'! Hope to see all your lovely faces their with bells & boots on! Again, this will be held at LITTLEFIELD (622 Degraw st. between 3rd & 4th ave.) This Saturday, July 21st.

Roots Family Reunion is back!

Hey folks. Sorry its been so terribly long since I posted here. No music this weekend but please come by & try some of our delicious french toast with berry compote that we are now serving on Saturday & Sunday only.Also try our vegan & gluten free doughnuts by the amazing KPOW! She is a wizard that waves her magic wand over these pastries of hers & makes them into a treat for all! Try the glazed with sprinkles or the cinnamon sugar.

 I'd like to go ahead & post a very special event we have coming up on Sat. July 21st at Littlefield. I will re post this next week to remind you all how very special it is. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

For those of you who were a part of this event last year, you know how truly special it was. We had live painting by Jake Nelson, eight local bands & the amazing Rabbi Darkside keeping the flow throughout the night! Close to 400 folks came out to be a part of the family ...& share in the love of this great neighborhood in which we live.

The name says it all. This is a community event celebrating the art & music of Roots cafe over the last three years. So many of you have helped create the special place that Roots is. This night is a way to say "Thank you" & in some way give back to you in the form of entertainment & good ol' fashioned gathering.
