Armisen and Hader started The Blue Jean Committee for a Saturday Night Live skit, playing frontman Richie Cornish and the unnamed bass player who’s known for his falsetto, respectively. They made their debut on SNL in 2011, playing “Massachusetts Afternoon” with the help of Jason Segel and Paul Rudd.

Inspired by such laid back duos as Loggins & Messina, Seals & Crofts, Becker & Fagan and England Dan and John Ford Coley and well-versed in the ‘Lido Shuffle,’ to boot, The Blue Jean Committee were the proud products of the late 70’s Northampton, Massachusetts music scene,” read a press release.
