See, the thing is, in 1998, we didn't fold the band. We just stopped doing shows (again). But, six long years have gone by, and a call from Not Just Another Music Shop came to Greg, they had requested Roots do a show for their 20th anniversary.

So, here we in 2005, dusting off 5 releases worth of Roots Roundup songs, and getting them ready for another round on the dancefloor. Stay tuned for further information, including a complete history of the band and more news regarding shows we'll be doing. We're looking forward to seeing everyone again!
