    The Roots – one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “twenty greatest live acts in the world” – will perform live at Universal Orlando Resort on March 19 as part of Mardi Gras.The band is famous for its jazzy, eclectic approach to hip hop, and currently performs on national television as the official house band of NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” The band is nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Best R&B Album for “Wake Up!,” their latest album done in collaboration with John Legend, and Best Rap Album for “How I Got Over.”
