JUKEBOX: Strings x Turntable
A Rootstock Republic Production

Rootstock Republic, 
a string production company that has collaborated with artists such as Aretha Franklin, Toshi Reagon, John Legend and Janelle Monaé, takes center stage in this concept-based, Jukebox-inspired live string performance.

Pairing some of NYC's most versatile string players with one of the industry's most inventive turntablists, this one-night-only performance will sample the songbooks of some of the world's most well-known artists, including Donnie Hathaway, Chaka Khan, Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder. Conceived and orchestrated by Rootstock Republic founder and CEO, Juliette Jones, the performance will also feature specially curated audio-reactive visuals, creating a multi-media exploration of classic songs that will challenge how you see and hear strings in music.

“A constant high point during the evening was the incredible accompaniment from the string section, [contracted by] Rootstock Republic…the strings were served to further envelope the crowd and conveyed a sense of wistfulness, longing, [and] melancholy.”—Pancakes and Whiskey

Ensemble: Juliette Jones, Jarvis Benson, Jessica McJunkins, James Douglas, Chris Johnson, Riza Printup and Raydar Ellis.
