MMJ released their first album in 1999, and made their major label debut with "It Still Moves" on ATO Records in 2003. Their highly regarded stage show amazed Bonnaroo fans in 2008. The four-hour set featured thirty-five songs, a guest appearance from Kirk Hammett of Metallica and covers of songs by Erykah Badu, Kool And The Gang, and Sly And The Family Stone, among others.

But tonight's "Live On Letterman" show won't be their first teaming with the late night talk show veteran. In 2006, they were musical guests on "The Late Show With David Letterman," and performed with members of the Boston Pops.

Let's see what surprises they bring to the stage tonight.
