Members of the long-standing and legendary hiphop group The Roots are no strangers to the DJ booth – take for instance drummer Questlove, who frequents Brooklyn Bowl to spin sets for bowlers and dancers alike – which makes sense considering the musical prowess each brings to the group. With minds as keyed into the world of grooves, beats, and melodies as theirs, audiences lap up the effortless curation these masters bring to the table. Now audiences have the opportunity to catch The Roots bassist + DJ Mark Kelley as he flexes his DJ muscle Thursday nights (no cover) at the W Hotel Times Square. Kelley, who has played with the likes of John Scofield, Mos Def, Bilal, Jason Moran, Meshell N’degeocello, and Roy Hargrove – to name just a few – is seen regularly on weeknights alongside the rest of The Roots and Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show. But never like this. Check out this new video for a glimpse of the sizzling tunes and delicious grooves DJ Mark Kelley will be bumpin’ at W Hotel (Times Square) this summer.
