In all of the preparations for leaving for NY this week we were asked yesterday if we could play Late Night with Conan O’Brien on February 6th prior to our Lincoln Center show on February 8th. We are all fans of the show and looking forward to hanging out a few extra days in NY. Thanks Conan! Paul Niehaus has performed on the show twice before with Lambchop and Vic Chesnutt recalling his meeting Larry King and Tim Robbins. Checking the NBC schedule it looks like we’ll be sharing the green room with Dr. Phil and the other mystery guest. I am thinking of writing out some horns parts for the Max Weinberg 7 and invite them to play with us. For sure Brooklyn’s virtuosic multi instrumental Rob Burger will be joining us on organ and we will try our best to coerce Conan to unwield his Fender Sratocaster. This is the first time we will be playing the show, Jim Pitt the talent and booking agent for the show has asked a few times in the past but our touring schedule has always prevented the opportunity. With a more open schedule this year we are all honored to be asked and to take part in one of our favorite late night TV shows.
