UCLA Annual Jazz/Reggae Fest 2012 Day 1 – The Roots

Enjoy the photos. A great event we go to every year closed out by the massive sound of The Roots. This was the 26th year of this melting pot of Los Angeles communities, music, and people. Its a bit of a microcosim of all of the things right with our diverse city. More to come. Enjoy the photos of the Roots and the attendees. Much thanks to Ken Heller at UCLA.
