DC get ready. DJ Questlove, hot of the premier of the Tonight Show, returns to Howard Theatre Friday February 28, for a night of music magic. Brush you’re dancing shoes off and get your tickets now before it sells out!
?uestlove is the unmistakable heartbeat of The Roots, Philadelphia’s most influential hiphop band. Beyond that, this Grammy award-winning musician’s undisputable reputation has landed him musical directing positions with everyone from D’Angelo to Eminem to Jay-Z. He boasts production credits for Erykah Badu, Joss Stone, Justin Timberlake and D’Angelo, among many others. His uncanny ear for picking the perfect song for the perfect moment landed him the position of musical director of The Dave Chapelle Show.
?uestlove’s insatiable love of music has led him on a worldwide crate-digging journey. He has amassed a vinyl collection of more than 50,000 records that are shelved in a floor to ceiling, climate controlled library room in his personal studio. What to do with all those records? DJ, of course. ?uestlove has rocked parties to sold out crowds worldwide. With such a diverse collection, he is able to deliver an eclectic variety of sets. Whether it’s hip-hop, house, 80’s, rare grooves or a mix of everything in between, he commands people to the dance floor to get loose and get down.
?uestlove is the modern day mayor of soul music. No matter what the style, when ?uestlove gets behind the decks, people dance until the lights come on. And even then, they don’t want to go home.
