Introducing The Band


Factoid: The Quests are the sixties, garage-punk pioneers who recorded "Scream Loud," "Shadows In The Night," and "I'm Tempted" on the Fenton Records label. An indie, Grand Rapids, Michigan garage band, The Quests perform original, classic-style Redux Rock with a focus on interesting melodies and upbeat lyrics. We have gone "Back To The Garage" and are recording once again. offers free MP3 downloads to both casual visitors and web site members. Our latest CD is titled,"Re-Quested: Back to the garage."

"Music and the friendship of comaraderie, indeed, never grow old. Each of The Quests has had the enormous joy that is associated with both, and our appreciation of this blessing is made even greater by your interest in spending time with us." - Bob F.
