Texas In July drummer, Adam Gray, is set to perform on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday, May 17th.
A video of Gray juggling three drumsticks while simultaneously drumming has gone viral and along the way has received appreciation from the likes of Ryan Seacrest, Travis Barker of Blink-182, Hayley Williams of Paramore, PerezHilton.com, CBSNews.com and of course – The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Gray will be performing his unique multi-tasking skills in a skit called “Does This Thrill Bill”, where he will try to impress the judge, actor William Shatner.
Gray says of the experience, “I’m honored to have been selected to perform on The Tonight Show. Everyone at the show that we’ve worked with so far has been incredibly supportive. I can’t thank them enough for such a great opportunity. I can’t wait to take the stage.”
“We’re all so excited that such a large audience is going to get to see how talented Adam is behind the drum kit,” says Texas In July bandmate, Ben Witkowski. “Adam is always practicing and working on new tricks, but we’re still always fascinated by what he’s able to do. Everyone on our tour is planning on watching the show together and cheering Adam on. We're all really looking forward to it.”
