Pittsburgh Event

Rusted Root Back in the ‘Burg June 23rd! FREE SHOW!!!

by Ed Thompson, Pittsburgh Music Magazine

The Root faithful in Pittsburgh have barely had a chance to settle down from Rusted Roots visit back home in April to Jergel’s Rhythm Grille in Warrendale PA. Michael Glabicki and the band left the sold out crowd begging for more.  But, relax, your prayers to the Root God’s have been answered.  Rusted Root fans will get a chance to see their hometown favorites just two months later when they will kick off Station Square’s “Summer Jamz 17” schedule of FREE concerts this Friday June 23rd.  Rusted Root will be supported by an opening act named “The Wailer’s” to warm up the crowd. The Wailers will take the stage at 7pm with Michael Glabicki and his bandmates hitting the stage around 830pm.


Earlier this spring and even more recently on their sporadic tour, Glabicki and the band have been giving the fans between 12-16 songs depending upon the time and venue. More recently, they have run through all their hits like “Welcome To My Party” which appears to have been the bands choice and fan favorite for the opening song throughout the spring and early summer. In addition, Lost In a Crowd, Back to Earth and Man, Not Machine have been the meat of their shows. The obvious fan favorites and hits “Ecstasy, “Voodoo” and the incredibly successful “Send Me On My Way” have been set closers or encores.


As you may remember, “Ecstasy” and “Send Me On My Way” were two of Rusted Roots early hits from 1995. This song began the Root verbiage of “oombayseeyou” and “seemoobadeeyah” which have since been sung by the crowds   just about every night since when Rusted Root provides the music. “Send Me On Your  Way” was records in 1994 and released on the “When I Woke” album.


Rusted Root wil take the stage Friday at Pittsburgh’s Station Square around 830pm to kick off the Summer Jamz 17 concert schedule.. If you missed the April show at Jergal’s, Glabicki and the band will probably forgive you.  But if you miss this one, I’m not so sure.
