The GreenRoots showcases were launched based upon the belief that mixing discerning ears for great sound with world-class talent will create a community capable of socially elevating the art of music to where it transcends labels of gender, class, or creed, and boundaries of race, culture, age, and musical genre. The GreenRoots family is a growing part of a larger movement emphasizing a return to authenticity in the music industry while staying rooted in the music and connected to one another. With this in mind, we'd like to proudly introduce a new experience called The Sound LAB, a special Summer spotlight series.
On Saturday, JULY 28th at 7:00pm, we're is bringing you a showcase featuring several amazing artists from the GreenRoots family. In place of the regular format of 2-3 songs, each artist will perform a 30 minute set. This summer series will be filmed resulting in a television project that will continue the GreenRoots tradition of displaying collaboration within the artist's community.
This is also the OFFICIAL pre-premiere party for the upcoming theatrical release of CRAIGSLIST JOE (www.craigslistjoe.com), directed by Joseph Garner, executive produced by Zach Galifianikis, and co-produced by Angelique Sheppard of GreenRoots. Several artists included on the soundtrack will be there to perform music from the movie.
This month, the featured artists are:
After the concert, there will be selections featuring artists Alisha Zalkin, Cipes and the People, Jesse Thomas, Michael Castro and Stephen Samuel Wrabel .
The evening will begin PROMPTLY at 7:00pm on Saturday, July 28th and the ticket proceeds are a charity called Kids In The Spotlight, a non-profit that works with foster children, teaching them to write and create their own short films.

When & Where
GreenRoots Presents is a socially conscious production company that has organized live music benefit concerts at premiere venues in Austin, TX, the Bay Area, and greater Los Angeles. What started with an eco-friendly wedding in Ojai, CA has organically grown to include producing events, commercials, a film and music showcases centered around creating a sense of community within the artists' community and raising funds for different local Los Angeles non-profit causes that support literacy programs for impoverished children, Hope for Haiti Now, inner city arts and music education programs, Gulf Relief and many more.
GreenRoots has put on sold-out concerts with platinum selling artists Bruno Mars and Colbie Caillat, pop sensations Andy Grammer and Allen Stone. GreenRoots has also presented performers Aqualung, John West, Tony Lucca, Angel Taylor, Allen Stone, Cary Brothers, Rocco DeLuca, Brendan James, Raining Jane, Keaton Simons, Lucy Schwartz, Kina Grannis, Jacob Luttrell, Ernie Halter and showcased to a sold out crowd at SXSW.
Currently, they are producing a television project entitled "The Sound Lab". This is an experiment based upon the belief that if you mix a network of individuals with discerning ears for great sound with a collection of artists with world class talent, you will create a resulting community with the capacity to socially elevate the art of music that transcends labels of gender, class or creed and boundaries of race, culture and age. It will suddenly be about staying connected to one another while staying rooted in the music.
Over the past few years, partners of GreenRoots have included Colette Weintraub, co-founder of the RED campaign w/ Bono, Producers of Emmy Award-winning Current TV, "MAX and JASON", Legendary music producer Mikal Blue (producer for One Republic, Colbie Caillat, Daughtry and Five For Fighting), M.A.M.A. earth, community organization that hosts concerts, events, classes, retreats while working closely with many non-profits, raising money for causes close to their hearts, and Causecast, a forward thinking, socially conscious, online, one-stop philanthropy and volunteerism shop. GreenRoots has built strong partnerships as a result of following the motto of "Creating community, from the roots up".
From intimate parties and documentaries to jam sessions in Venice and sold out concerts in Hollywood, GreenRoots hopes to remind the artists and the audience that the purpose behind the art is participation, locally and globally, because at the end of the day, we're all in this together :)
