The Tonight Show Band is the band which plays on the American television variety show, “The Tonight Show.” From 1962 to the 1990s, during the years the show was known as “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”, the band was a 17-piece Big Band, and was an important outlet for jazz on American television.
