Band From TV

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.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
