The Grass Roots are a highly successful rock and roll group that consistently produced quality music in their heyday from 1966 to 1975. Although they never attained a number one hit on the charts, they were consistently in the top end of popular music in the turbulent rock music scene. Radio play was a big factor in their history. It was not easily tracked to properly reflect on the charts, in those years. They managed to be one of the top picks of disc jockeys and enjoyed frequent requests from listeners. From 1967 to 1972, The Grass Roots set a record for being on the Billboard charts 307 straight weeks. They are one of only nine bands that have charted twenty nine or more Top 100 Billboard singles. 

Current members include Dusty Hanvey (guitar, vocals), Larry Nelson (keyboard, vocals), Joe Dougherty (drums), Mark Dawson (vocals, bass).
