EP 184 - The Drummers of Late Night with Eric Leiderman

Updated: Jan 4, 2023

Eric Leiderman is a producer at NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers and is the man behind the rotating drummer program which has given drummers of all styles the chance to perform with the 8G band on national American television. The 8G Band is the house band for Late Night with Seth Meyers and the band is led by Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live, Portlandia, Wednesday). Due to Fred Armisens extremely busy schedule, the 8G band has a roster of all star drummers who take turns performing with the group. Some of the drummers who have played with the 8G Band include Brad Wilk, Chad Smith, Josh Freese, Matt Cameron and many many more monster players. Together, these artists bring a wide range of experience and expertise to the band, and their contributions have helped bring drummers to the national stage on a weekly basis.

Eric has a background as a touring drummer and as a TV comedy writer for many years and is full of great information and stories. If you have ever thought about sitting in with the 8G Band, this is a good starting point - Eric gives the info on what is needed and how to get in touch with him.

Be sure to tune in to Late Night with Seth Meyers in January 2023 to see Danny Carey, Dan Fang, Maya Stepansky, and Fred Armisen.

Enjoy this episode!
