The Oshkosh band The Willis (as in "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?") will be headed to New York City this week to play a test show for The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon is replacing Conan O'Brien as O'Brien moves to the Tonight Show to replace Jay Leno.
Steve, Todd and Eric (the pretty Eric) joined us on the Rick and Len Show Monday. The hook-up with Fallon is the song Jimmy Fallon - the Plan
on The Willis' album Bathtub, Lightbulb, Heart Attack.
It's about a guy who makes a demo in hopes of meeting Jimmy Fallon. Funny how fiction becomes truth sometimes!
If Fallon and his guys like the band, they may be asked back as the musical guest after the show hits the air in early March. Check out The Willis at myspace.com/thewillis
