The Roots are a Grammy-Award winning, platinum-selling band, and Questlove is an incredibly accomplished producer and musician with a long list of credits. They're definitely more than just a show band! Before they got the Fallon Gig, they had huge hits in the Hip Hop/RnB charts, but they're multi-genre and dable in other kinds of music. "You Got Me" with Erykah Badu even has a little 90s Drum N' Bass. Check out "Things Fall Apart" to start - classic album. Much respect for Questlove & The Roots!
Totally agree, I loved my first visit back in the fall of 2000. I remember being completely blown away by the Spiderman ride, which is still one of my favorite dark rides. Dueling Dragons actually dueled at that time and it was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had at a park. It wasn't that busy of a day, so we got tons of rides on the Dragons--and didn't have to go through metal detectors! I've been back to the park several times since then, but that first time back in 2000 is still my favorite visit.
