the annual roots jam session is easily my favorite grammy season event of the year because you never really know what you might see if you stick around. this year was no different with the show being kicked off with a nearly 10 minute ?uestlove / travis barker drum-off that started on two drum kits but quickly moved to bongos and all other manner of percussion.
patrick co-hosted this year and did a great rendition of the police classic "walking on the moon"
out of nowhere, seal (the singer, not the animal) decided he wanted a piece of the action and performed "rebel, rebel", "wind cries mary", and "fly like an eagle". this is easily my favorite patrick stump related photo of all time.
as the night wore on i got progressively more intoxicated and less concerned with taking photos but the highlight of roots jam session (2nd half) is a tie between standing 10 feet away from prince and mc lyte bringing up doug e. fresh to perform "la di da di". sick.
very big props to tina and sarah from the roots camp for putting on such an amazing event 5 years running!
