They have a long and wonderful history of working together on “Saturday Night Live” and now Seth Meyers and Fred Armisen are teaming up again.

When Meyers takes over for Jimmy Fallon on “Late Night” later this month, Mr. Armisen will serve as his band leader, replacing the former house band The Roots, who will travel with Fallon to his “Tonight Show” gig.

Seth tweeted a photo of Armisen and his musicians on Monday (February 10), and it looks like they’ll bring a whole new vibe to the show.

Along with the shot, Meyers added the caption, "Fred will curate and lead the band, and continue to run it even when he's off shooting Portlandia.”
