Quest 4 Quest Day 3. The night we made contact

Last night, a few brave SoB souls made there way to Drinkers West in Philly to listen to Quest spin records. Thanks to Kelly Christine Delaney, Dave Fiorito, the crew from Philly Union Talk, and the Philadelphia Union intern Lewis LaBar. Our fearless SoB's stayed until after 2 am, armed in one custom Philadelphia Union jersey, one SoB scarf, a note from an SoB elder, a copy of the game schedule, and hopes and dreams of Questlove becoming part of The River End crew.

Talking to Kelly about an hour ago, she said the set was unreal. Anyone who has seen Questo drum or DJ has come to expect the amazing, though. After 2am, they waited for the moment. In discussion with Kelly today, she said that Quest spoke with them for a bit. He once again confirmed that the team played in Chester and fist bumped our crew. The good news, Quest has his custom Philadelphia Union jersey and SoB scarf. The bad news, we have yet to confirm a game appearance for Questlove. Until then, enjoy these picture from last night. Thanks again.

Although I am hoping for breaking news tomorrow, I have a feeling it will be a non-Questo-news day. Until we have more ?uest news, keep sharing our favorite Roots/Quest music. Keep our Quest 4 Quest alive.

Quest 4 Quest Day 2: Drinkers West, Philly, PA

A little over 48 hours into 'Quest 4 Quest'. In contact with Quest news, Sara Shepherd became his favorite newbie when she used the term 'rappy'. Always the articulate speaker, we are glad to have Sara on our side.

SoB's at Drinkers West tonight... Our boy Questlove will be spinning records at Drinkers West in Philadelphia, PA tonight. One of our Sons of Ben member, Christine Kelly, will be attending. In her possession is a gift for Quest from the Sons of Ben.

Due to my work schedule, I will be unable to attend the event at Drinkers West, but I would like to hear that our Philly SoB's made it out to support Christine, Questlove, and our quest 4 Quest. Here is the link to Drinkers West. . Quest will be spinning from 10pm to 2am.

I changed my blog profile picture to a design made by one of our Sons of Ben member. We have dubbed this the 'Jolly Questlove'. 

Currently, I have some folks in NYC and in Philly checking to see if they have any contacts direct to Questlove, Jimmy Fallon, or The Roots.

I hope to have a post tomorrow about our success at Drinkers West. DOOP! And I leave you with some Questlove.

Quest 4 Quest Day 1

For those of you who may not have seen the latest overambitious venture from our Sons of Ben, late the other night, member Scott Kessler mentioned how cool it would be if ?uestlove from The Roots came to Chester and sat in The River End with us. Well, wheels in other heads started spinning, and by the time Scott had finished Seder, we had a twitter movement, #quest4Quest. 

The idea is simple. We want ?uestlove to come to The River End for a match. Maybe he can help our drummers out (good luck). 

Well, sometime in the last night/ wee morning hours, contact was made. ?uest reached out through his twitter account to @TheRiverEnd to confirm that PPL Park is in Chester and to acknowledge that he has seen our tweets. 

So we know ?uestlove really is out there, and we know that ?uestlove has seen the first round of Sons of Ben tweets to him. Keep it up, SoBs. #quest4Quest, in one day, in actually less than 14 hours, got ?uest's attention. Keep it positive, keep it fun, let's make #quest4Quest happen.  

I may not update this blog every day, but when #quest4Quest news breaks, I will be there.
