Brittiny Warner 1916
Jimmy Fallon left the Big Apple for St. Patrick’s Day and ventured upstate for some small town pub partying … hitting up a local watering hole, and jamming out with the band!
The ‘Tonight Show’ host found his way into Iron Smoke Distillery Friday in Fairport, NY — just outside of Rochester. He actually knows the owner of the bar across the street — Mulconry’s Irish Pub — and apparently heard the musicians from 1916 rocking out … feeling intrigued.
We’re told Jimmy popped in toward the end of 1916’s set and asked if he could play with them before they headed out. Of course, they obliged — sticking around for a few more songs. As many people know, JF’s a bit of a music man himself … and a natural showman.
That came in handy for the three tunes they performed — including The Doors’ “Gloria,” The Georgia Satellites’ “Keep Your Hands to Yourself” and U2’s “Desire.” Jimmy took charge on vocals and on lead guitar … and all the other band members backed him up.
After hitting the stage, we’re told Jimmy hung around a bit and took photos with patrons … capping off a great time had by all. Seems he wanted his holiday to be a little more low-key and homegrown … and he certainly got that with the Iron Smoke crowd that night.
We’ll see if he has more to dish about his night out come Monday … when he’ll be back on late night duty, with his own band on hand. This is just a good reminder — dude could probably jump in himself at a moment’s notice and hold his own.
Good old Jimmy … gotta love him.
