Roots of Music to March in Tournament of Roses Parade

Exciting news for the Roots of Music, folks. On the heels of their performance last weekend in Jackson Square — where they debuted their brand new suits — Derrick Tabb and co. will head west later this week to march as part of the Tournament of Roses Parade next Tuesday, January 1.

Congrats, all! We look forward to seeing you represent Tuesday morning. The 124th annual Rose Parade will be broadcast at 10 a.m. Central Time.

    Will tune in to see them strut in the Roses Parade on Tuesday! What a wonderful effort for Mr. Tabb to bring these kids up with musical skills that will take them far! Congrats to all! You look sharp in your snappy new suits!
