Show Info

Truckeroo is a monthly festival held at the corner of Half St.and M St. SE showcasing the best in Washington DC musical talent and tasty meals from local food trucks. On Friday May 17 Sol Roots Trio (w Fatskeys) performs. Sol Roots with Fatskeys and Mike Tony Echols at The Fairgrounds/ The Bull Pen 1299 Half St SE Washington, DC 20003 Sol is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol and his band create a unique blend of rock, blues, reggae, and raw funk, all delivered with deep soul, performing tasty original tunes and bluesy, greasy jams. Sol Roots has toured across the east coast U.S. at many premier festivals and venues and have been on bills with Jon Cleary, Soulive, The Wood Brothers, Robert Randolph, Jackie Greene, Eric Lindell, Walter Wolfman Washington and more. Sol has performed on stage and in the studio with musical heavyweights Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepard, and with the international guitar hero Cool John Ferguson, who he performed with steadily for years. Sol has soaked in much from funk, blues, and soul heroes such as Roy Lee Johnson, Albert White, and Robert Lee Coleman, while touring and gigging with these artists. Sol also created a buzz with his underground blues hiphop album entitled “Volume: Blue”, that carried him overseas to perform these sets live. With a love of Universal Music as the guiding light, Sol steps out on a path with a unique and talented band of musicians.
