Michael Wolff & 'The Posse' - Late night
musical group featured on THE ARSENIO HALL SHOW/SYN/1988-93.
Michael Wolff, Bandleader for
The Arsenio Hall Show
Somewhere in the beginning of his opening monologue, talk show host
Arsenio Hall would acknowledge his five piece musical ensemble which
he called the "Posse."
The Posse consisted of musical director and bandleader Michael Wolff
(piano/organ); John Bernard Williams (bass guitar); Starr Parodi
(Synthesizer); Chuck Morris (Drums) and Peter Maunu (lead guitar).
The Posse's lively music set the party mood with Arsenio Hall often
asking the Posse for a funky musical beat while he introduced the
nightly line up of guests.
In addition there were running gags involving the band including a
poetry moment read by the bald John B. Williams; and mock moments of
antagonism and jealousy generated by guitarist, Peter Maunu.
