His plans are in flux, but Kevin Eubanks says that for now he’ll still be with Jay Leno when they return to the Tonight Show, but in a reduced capacity.
Eubanks, who joined the Tonight Show in 1992 and became bandleader two years later, reportedly was going to leave at some point after the show resumes March 1 following a disappointing prime-time run.
On Thursday, he took to his Twitter page to thank people for their messages and say: “I’ll still be around on the show, but less as of now. I’ll tweet when a definite plan is set. ”
