'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert' gets its band leader
New Orleans musici an Jon Batiste has been tapped to be the bandleader on Stephen Colbert's forthcoming revamp of "The Late Show" on CBS.
“His music makes the audience feel so good, we may have to install a ‘Do Not Make Love’ sign,” said Colbert in a statement.
“I’m thrilled! This is a match made in heaven. Get ready for a love riot in late night,” said Batiste, who has literally taken his music into the streets in Louisiana for what he calls "love riots."
Multi-instrumentalist Batiste is leader in his band Stay Human and has collaborated with numerous other musicians, from Prince to Wynton Marsalis.
"The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" premieres on Sept. 8.
