With Monday’s exciting news that Fred Armisen will lead the “Late Night with Seth Meyers” band, we can’t help ourselves from wondering what to expect.

It’s no surprise that Meyers brought on his former “SNL” castmate to command the 8G Band, since music has always been a part of Armisen’s sketches. He even played drums in the band Trenchmouth and in the Blue Man Group (WHAT?!). Knowing Armisen’s penchant for hilarious, wacky musical sketches, these are some things we’re hoping to see from the new “Late Night” band -- we know we’re dreaming big, but why not?

Some serious drum action.
