Rusted Root has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide since forming in Pittsburgh in the early ’90s. The band’s worldly style quickly charmed fans of roots music and world rock. Their 1994 album When I Woke went platinum and featured the hit songs “Send Me On My Way,” “Ecstasy” and “Martyr.” Throughout the ’90s the band toured with many well known performers, such as theDave Matthews Band, Santana, opening for The Grateful Dead (at Jerry Garcia's last show) and supporting the Jimmy Page and Robert Plant reunion tour.
After debuting in 1992 with the self-released Cruel Sun, Rusted Root signed with Mercury Records and returned in 1996 with Remember, followed by 1998’s Rusted Root. Following some time off the band re-emerged in 2002 with Welcome To My Party. After leaving Mercury/Island Def Jam Records the band’s sixth album, Rusted Root Live, was released in 2004. Along the way, Rusted Root issued three EPs, a home video (Rusted Root Live), contributed to film and television soundtracks (Twister, Matilda, Home For the Holidays, Party of Five, Charmed, Homicide and Ice Age) and performed at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. NASA engineers chose “Send Me On My Way” as “wake-up” music for the Mars Exploration rover Opportunity . The band’s most recent album, Stereo Rodeo, explores a variety of musical styles, crossing and merging genres. Expect new music and faithful fan favorites at their Colonial Theatre performance.
