Contributor’s Note: Episode 20 of The Don’s Hit List Podcast is now available with an interview with Roads who is the front-man of the Funk / Reggae / Rock / Hip-hop band Tropidelic. This band has wrapped up successful shows in Florida and Texas and are getting ready to be in some large festivals including a bloc party in Youngstown, Ohio on May 18th. Their new album “Here In The Heights” will be released on June 7, 2019.

Roads spent some time with me as they were travelling back to Cleveland. We discussed some ‘goosebump’ moments in their tracks with some interesting stories about the songs.

If you love 311, Outkast, LCD Soundsystem, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Pepper, Dirty Heads…I could go on but this band mixes so much into their music that you cannot pigeonhole them into one style.
