Wiki

Kevin Tyrone Eubanks (born November 15, 1957 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American jazz guitarist who is the leader of the Tonight Show Band with host Jay Leno from 1995 to present. He also led The Primetime Band on the short-lived Jay Leno Show.

He composed The Tonight Show with Jay Leno's closing theme music, "Kevin's Country," in 1992.

When NBC moved Leno's show from late night to primetime (10PM in eastern time zones), Eubanks moved with the band to continue conducting the music for the new version of Leno's show. Eubanks appeared on the new show as the Primetime Band. It was announced on February 16, 2010 that Eubanks would only be returning for a short time as band leader when Jay Leno begins his second tenure on The Tonight Show.
