This guy is a legend. He was not only an integral part of the Blues Brothers Band, but he appeared in the movie as himself and arranged many of the groups tunes. That gig stemmed from his time in the Saturday Night Live Band, serving as the group's musical director for about 5 years. That's probably where he met Paul Shaffer, who he joined in 1993 as a member of the CBS Orchestra when David Letterman moved to that network. He - and Paul and Dave - stayed there until 2015.
His name is Tom "Bones" Malone
and those are just a few samples of his resume. The list of talent he has performed with is mind-boggling. He's one of the most in-demand musicians in the country and he returns to The Nite Show for an interview and a performance with Brian Nadeau & The Nite Show Band.
