Florida-based Rootz of Music, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 2011 by Jazz guitarist, arranger, composer, and music educator Eugene Grey along with his wife Felicia K. Grey. Rootz of Music is committed to inspiring people and assisting in their growth and appreciation of music. Our vision is to touch the world by creating, developing and supporting programs and other non-profit organizations in their efforts to advance music education.
Since its formation, Rootz of Music, Inc. has been making a positive impact on the lives of under served young people in our community. One of the goals of the organization is to preserve the historic story of Jamaica’s popular music through a series of presentations of its innovative program "American Roots of Jamaican Music: The Legacy" at various High and Middle schools as well at SOS Children’s Villages – Florida Inc., an institution providing care to children facing challenges with family support.
