The multi-instrumentalist group Rusted Root integrated the Grateful Dead\'s jam-heavy rock with percussion influences based on the music of Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. The six-piece formed in Pittsburgh in 1990 with Michael Glabicki (vocals, guitar), Liz Berlin (vocals, percussion), Patrick Norman (bass, vocals), and Jim Donovan (drums, percussion) as the initial lineup, though John Buynak (percussion, winds) and Jim DiSpirito (percussion) joined later that year.
The show starts at 9pm on Saturday, October 13th, and is located at Otto's Nightclub and Underground, at 118 E. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb. Tickets are $20/$25. For tickets or more information, please call 815-758-2715 or visit http://www.ottosdekalb.com/.
