Band of Horses of Charleston performing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” | Charleston Scene


The Charleston rock band Band of Horses performs on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on March 3.

The group – best known for hits like ‘The Funeral’ and ‘Crutch’ – are performing in promotion of their upcoming album ‘Things are Great’, which is out the next day.

Several members of the Band of Horses, originally based in Seattle, now live in Charleston — and it’s only picked up steam in recent months. Local musician Brett Nash joined the band in late January as lead guitarist.

“A big part (of membership is) just being a fan,” Nash said. “When we were on this little opening tour for them and just every show, just watching them, I would shake my head and even think ‘this would be a fun band to play in’.

Nash, who is also part of South Carolina bands Charleston’s Secret Guest and Columbia’s Shows, had opened the Band of Horses tour in 2021 alongside Charleston’s Faline.

Band of Horses previously performed on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” with a performance of “Casual Party” in 2016, and the band are no strangers to the late-night scene. They also performed on the competing show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” next year.

Band of Horses was recently announced as the opening act for the upcoming Black Keys concert tour which will run from July to October.

Dubbed the “Dropout Boogie Tour”, it includes a show at the newly renovated and soon to open Credit One Stadium on Daniel Island. This concert at the outdoor amphitheater is scheduled for August 30 and tickets are on sale.

The tour also includes stops in Atlanta and Scaly Mountain, North Carolina.

Band of Horses’ appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show airs at 11:35 p.m. on NBC; typically, musical guest performances are also put on the show’s YouTube page. The episode will also include an interview with “Outlander” actor Sam Heughan.
