To congratulate the UMass Amherst class of 2020 and celebrate the whole campus community for stepping up in the face of the coronavirus crisis, The Fine Arts Center closes out its 2019-2020 season with an exclusive virtual dance party. Join us for this special gathering of UMass students, faculty, staff, alumni, patrons and donors, where we'll connect, catch-up, dance and enjoy an uplifting set by ?uestlove, a four-time Grammy Award winning drummer, DJ, producer, culinary entrepreneur, and New York Times best-selling author.
?uestlove is the unmistakable heartbeat of Philadelphia’s most influential hip-hop group, The Roots. Since 2014, he has been the Musical Director for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where his beloved Roots crew serves as house band. Beyond that, his indisputable reputation has landed him musical directing positions with everyone from D'Angelo to Eminem to Jay-Z.
Presented with the support from the UMass Office of the Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
