(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents The Roots with A Christian McBride Situation on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 8:00pm. 

Led by Questlove and Black Thought, the legendary Roots crew has become one of the best-known and most respected hip hop acts in the business, winning four GRAMMY Awards, including Best R&B Album for Wake Up!, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for "Hang in There" (with John Legend), and Best Group or Duo R&B Vocal Performance for "Shine." The Roots were named “one of the greatest live bands around” by Rolling Stone, and serve as the official house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Bassist, composer and educator Christian McBride, the Jazz Advisor for NJPAC, has performed with greats like Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner, Pat Metheny and Milt Jackson, among others, moving freely among the worlds of R&B, pop-rock, classical and hip hop.  He is a six-time GRAMMY winner and Artistic Director of the Newport Jazz Festival.
