Roots Performs with Galactic!

The Roots of Music Marching Crusaders got funky with Galactic!
June 9th 2010
The YLC Wednesday At The Square
finale event was a
super hot show!
The Soul Rebels with our own Mr. Lee set the tone and got the crowd into the groove for some funk! The guys from Galactic performed with Cyril Neville and then introduced the crowd to The Roots of Music Marching Crusaders! The kids performance was spectacular! Even Ben Ellman the sax player for the group was blown away! A huge Thank You! goes out to YLC, Galactic, The Soul Rebels and all of the fans that attended!
