    Earlier this week, Hootie & the Blowfish stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show to perform “Only Wanna Be With You,” a cut from their 1994 breakthrough debut album, Cracked Rear View.

    The South Carolina rockers displayed amazing chemistry as they jammed out on stage to the feel-good melody, an impressive performance from a group who have been on a decade-long hiatus. Frontman Dairus Rucker’s vocals were clear and confident as ever as he sang to the song’s infectious chorus: “Well there’s nothing I can do / I only wanna be with you / You can call me your fool / I only wanna be with you.”

    Besides their performance on Fallon, the group also recently announced a reunion tour. Titled the Group Therapy Tour, the 44-date trek will land in Las Vegas, Nashville, Columbia and other cities. Hootie have also revealed their plans to drop new music in 2019, their first since 2005’s Looking for Lucky, although nothing has yet been confirmed.
