I knew that The Roots' free show at Nathan Phillips Square for Panamania, the Arts & Culture Program of the Pan Am Games, was going to be popular. I had a feeling that it would surpass all the other Panamania shows I have attended in terms of the overall crowd size. And I was right.

A crowd that filled the entirety of the square in front of Toronto City Hall was there to have fun. And The Roots came to have fun, too. The band brought the funk and all the good vibes that go with it. I think it's pretty obvious looking at the band members' faces that they were having a great time delivering feel-good vibes to Toronto. Great show!

The band is fantastically talented and each member got a chance to show off their chops. Their setlist was enjoyable for all with varied funky musical interludes and entertaining stage presence. They mixed in a bit of classic rock in the form of Guns N Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine", and George Thoroughgood's "Bad to the Bone" and "Who Do You Love?", too.
