~~~ Hailing from Western New York, Diggin’ Roots Band was formed in the summer of 2013 by a group of friends who share a passion for the roots of American music. The band blends many genres but maintains a firm dedication to the roots of “Delta Blues” with a hint of “Jam Band” for good measure. Marty Smith’s drums and Toby Lindberg's bass lay down the foundation with a tight rhythm pocket, while Johnny Mac and Gerry Loiacano layer in deep traditional harmonica and smooth guitar leads. The lovely Ms. Whitney Riley is always on point with powerful vocals and adds a hint of brass on her trumpet. The band shares a common belief that music is medicine and has the power to inspire and heal.
