RIVAL SONS Perform On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' (Video)

California blues rockers RIVAL SONS appeared as the musical guests on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" last Thursday night, March 7.

The band appeared alongside the late-night talk show host, as well as Los Angeles Lakers basketball legend Kobe Bryant and British actor Dominic Monaghan to perform its tracks "Keep On Swinging" and "You Want To" for the studio audience.

Commented RIVAL SONS drummer Michael Miley: "Holy cow, ya, being on 'Jimmy Kimmel' is monumental for us. He's the number one late night show with a massive audience. I mean, what up-and-coming band would not live to do that! I feel honored. Thanks to Jimmy and his peeps for working with us. Thanks to all the fans who came out. And hello and welcome to all the fresh virgin fans. See you on tour!"

RIVAL SONS recently wrapped up a string of U.S. and Canadian dates, and is due to return to Europe for a headlining tour on March 22.
