Frank Knuckles & The Roots make history!

Beginning Feb. 17, 2014, Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Jimmy Fallon will bring NBC's "The Tonight Show" back to its New York origins when he launches "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" from Rockefeller Center. Fallon will put his own stamp on the storied NBC late-night franchise with his unique comedic wit, on-point pop culture awareness, welcoming style and his impeccable taste in music with the award-winning house band, The Roots.

Named one of the greatest live bands around by Rolling Stone Magazine, the legendary Roots Crew have become one of the best known and most respected hip-hop acts in the business, winning four Grammys over the course of their career. The ensemble most recently received a “Best Rap Album” nomination for their last studio release undun, which brings their GRAMMY nomination count to twelve. 

Pearl congratulates Frank Knuckles on the latest benchmark to an already stellar career!
