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.
Another wedding band reunion. Screaming, Dave Grohl and Ashton Kutcher included, please.
A performance by Defiance of Anthropomorphic Sea Mammals.
The greatest band ever.
The awesome sound effects from "Pet Sounds."
That echo chamber, that snap, that clap. Oh, and a Jack White cameo would be amazing, too.
A Carrie Brownstein appearance. Can we have some table-dancing too?
Improvised trumpet and flute action from Garth and Kat.
A Bjelland Brother reunion. Featuring a performance of "A Bottle of Sparkling Apple Juice," of course.
A Prince cameo.
A Blue Jean Committee performance.
Playing nothing but "Massachusetts Afternoon."
A Liberace tribute.
British Saddam Hussein playing guitar.
Fericito banging on the drums.
And of course, an Ian Rubbish cameo.
"Late Night With Seth Meyers" debuts Feb. 24 on NBC at 12:35 a.m. EST.
