Chronixx brings reggae to The  Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC

Jamaica’s newest music hero Chronixx is having another big year, and Tuesday July 22 he’ll add another notch to his red, gold and green belt when he makes his U.S. television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The “Here Comes Trouble” singer will be the first reggae artist to appear on The Tonight Show since Fallon (and the Roots) took over the late-night institution from Jay Leno in February. He’ll be backed live by his band, Zincfence Redemption. Chronixx and Zincfence’s appearance comes just days ahead of their highest-profile U.S. concert appearance to date, as the headliner for LargeUp’s inaugural Central Park SummerStage concert presented with OkayplayerFederation Sound and Rice & Peas on July 26.

Cosby The Roots Fallon Black Uhuru

Cosby Show devotees will recall the “Full House” episode from the series’ first season, when Cliff Huxtable walked in on Denise and her new beau “Eddie Lakehart” grooving to Black Uhuru’s “Sponji Reggae.” The scene—specifically Denise and Eddie’s adlibbed lyrics—was memorable enough it earned Lisa Bonet and actor Clayton Prince an honorable mention on our Hollywood’s Top 10 Worst Jamaican Accents countdown from 2011.
