Who doesn’t love Stephen’s amazing house band, Stay Human? And band leader Jon Batiste has turned out to be an integral part of the show, between his repartee with Stephen, the way he delivers a perfectly timed “Yeah!”, and, of course, the way he dances around while grooving on his melodica. But let’s face it, even if he just did the melodica thing, he’d still be an important part of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
