New York, NY (May 15, 2018)
Steven Wolf (also known simply as Wolf) is one of the world’s most in-demand studio musicians. Modern Drummer referred to Wolf as a “Modern-day hit-making machine”
Wolf will be the guest drummer with the 8gband May 21-24 on Late Night with Seth Meyers. SNL alumni Fred Armisen assembled the 8G Band, named for the studio where the show is taped. Armisen is often gone thus providing further opportunities for guest musicians to sit in with The 8G Band. Notable names to sit in on the drum kit include: Patrick Carney, Chad Smith, David Lovering, Kenny Aronoff, Jon Theodore, Nicko McBrain, Matt Sorum, Brad Wilk, Darren King, Danny Carey, Abe Cunningham, Dave Lombardo, Brann Dailor, Jimmy Chamberlin, Matt Cameron, and Abe Laboriel Jr.

“Steven Wolf is, without doubt, truly one of today’s modern day drummers. He has all the technique and chops, he can groove like a feel-good metronome, and his programmed drum parts make you think, are these real drums or not?
He’s played on countless hit records, three of which are considered to be the biggest in the last decade: “I Kissed a Girl,” by Katy Perry, “Girlfriend,” by Avril Lavigne, and “Wrecking Ball,” by Miley Cyrus. In the course of his twenty-five plus years playing professionally, and ultimately being comfortable staying behind the scenes, a handful of artists Steven has worked with include Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Annie Lennox, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, Pink, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Cher, Joss Stone, Natalie Imbruglia, Leona Lewis, the B-52’s, the Bee Gees, Johnny Cash, Rufus Wainwright, Daryl Hall, Sugababes, the Veronicas, Hiram Bullock, Oz Noy, Screaming Headless Torsos, Tribal Tech, Larry Coryell, Lenny Pickett, Patti Austin, Alex Bugnon, Helen Reddy, the Saturday Night Live band, Grover Washington Jr., and more.”
