Seth Meyers' Band To Be Led by Fred Armisen
His repeated impressions of Lawrence Welk finally explained as auditions to be a bandleader, Fred Armisen has officially been given the job of running the music side of Late Night with Seth Meyers. Always as much a music guy as a comedy guy, Armisen will not just lead but curate The 8G Band through his various connections. Meyers tweeted the news earlier today, adding the above photo and the assurance that Armisen will continue running things even when he has to slip off for Portlandia shooting. You can also probably be pretty well assured that you have not seen your last Fericito or Ian Rubbish sketch.
