Stephen Colbert has introduced Jon Batiste as the new “Late Show” band leader on CBS. The talk show host made the announcement on Thursday.
“His music makes the audience feel so good, we may have to install a ‘Do Not Make Love’ sign,” said Colbert.
“I’m thrilled! This is a match made in heaven. Get ready for a love riot in late night,” said the musician.
Batiste, who hails from New Orleans, most recently appeared on the second and third seasons of HBO’s “Treme.”
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” premieres on Sept. 8.
