Keeping The Beat

The Roots of Music Marching Crusaders keep a full schedule of events, and are active every Mardi Gras season. In 2016 Roots was honored to march in the King Arthur, Bacchus, Proteus and Chaos Mardi Gras parades.

In addition to a full schedule of performances at conventions and festivals, in the past year members of Roots have been selected to perform for President Barack Obama at the Hurricane Katrina 10 Year Anniversary, with the Louisiana Philharmonic for the 610 Stompers Holiday Spectaular, at the Link Stryjewski Bal Masque, at the inauguration of Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, and most recently Roots students performed at Essence Fest as part of a tribute to the late recording artist Prince.
