Daxx Nielsen from Cheap Trick will be playing drums on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

I think it's always good to see people from Rockford do well.

Daxx Nielsen is already doing great as the drummer for Cheap Trick.

Now comes a whole other awesome opportunity for him.

With a couple of days off from his regular gig, Nielsen is going to help out another band.

On October 1st - 4th, he will be playing drums with the 8G band on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Not a bad gig for a kid from the Forest City.

Check out his post on Instagram announcing it.

Congrats Daxx. I can't wait to see it.
