Monday night on the Tonight Show, Jay Leno announced that Kevin Eubanks will be leaving The Tonight Show for good in 6 weeks.
Kevin Eubanks joined The Tonight Show in 1992 and became the music director in 1995.
“After 18 years, I just need a change of pace and see what else is going on,” Eubanks explained. “But it’s a really difficult decision because this has become my second home, as it has been for the band, and I love the audience and the American people really love the show, and it’s been a wonderful experience to be here.” “After 18 years of playing America in to commercials, I’m gonna go somewhere where I can finish a song.”
Is it coincidence that Kevin makes his announcement at the same time we find out that Conan is returning??
