The Roots Throw First Annual Emmys Jam

The Roots Throw First Annual Emmys Jam

The Philly band celebrates Jimmy Fallon's Emmy nods tonight.

Published September 17, 2011

The Roots are holding their first annual Pre-Emmy Jam tonight, September 17, in Los Angeles.

The Jam is a spin-off of the group's popular annual Grammys Jam Session, which they've thrown every year since 2003 to celebrate the music industry's biggest night. Much like that event, the Pre-Emmys Jam is expected to feature a number of celebrities and renowned musicians collaborating with The Roots.

The event will take on special meaning for the Philadelphia-based crew, as they're the acclaimed house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, which received its first-ever Emmy nominations this year, for best variety, music or comedy series and best writing.

The 1st annual Pre-Emmy Jam featuring The Roots goes down at the House of Blues in West Hollywood tonight.
