Last night, The Lumineers stopped by the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to perform their ever joyous “Ho Hey!” The VH1 You Oughta Know artists, as Jay introduces them, have kept busy this summer “Ho Hey”-ing through our studios, in the streets and up the charts. And last night on the sort of bucolic stage, set with a sunflower banner and trees that look borrowed from a Waiting for Godot production, they did it again. Their usual three members swelled to five, with an added mandolin and bass guitar, and sure enough those four extra feet were put to work in what might have been the most fun rendering of the song we’ve seen so far. “Ho Hey” was built around good energy and toe tapping. That energy seems to be mounting with The Lumineers’ quick ascent. And that toe tapping? We don’t doubt that they left televisions rattling last night.
