Last night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno “Band From TV” made what I believe is their first appearance on television and it was spectacular.
If you’re a fan of shows like “Heroes”, “Desperate Housewives”, “House” and others, then you should love that some of your favorite actors and actresses from those shows have formed a musical group, known by the clever name of “Band From TV”, along with some fellow musicians who jam with them and stars from other shows who sometime join them at concerts.
The regular lineup includes a powerhouse of well-known and acclaimed actors including: Greg Grunberg of “Heroes” (drums); Adrian Pasdar, also of “Heroes” (guitar); Teri Hatcher of “Desperate Housewives” (vocals) who I did not see in last night’s performance; James Denton also of “Desperate Housewives” (guitar); Bob Guiney who appeared on “The Bachelor” and is currently seen on TLC’s “Date My House” (vocals); Bonnie Somerville who is starring in ABC’s new fall series “Cashmere Mafia” (vocals); Hugh Laurie, star of “House” (keyboards); Jesse Spencer also of “House” (violin); and rounding out the band are accomplished musicians Chris Kelley, Barry Sarna, Jon Sarna, Chris Mostert and child-star turned bass player Brad Savage.
They have a CD/DVD available of a live concert performance available exclusively on Amazon, titled “Hoggin’ All The Covers” which promptly went on my Amazon Wishlist.
Even cooler than all this talent coming together for some musical fun is the fact that the majority of proceeds from concerts and CD/DVD sales go to charities that the performers support.
Here’s a video of last night’s performance from YouTube.
