As many of you have read I had a great time finally seeing Band From TV at Gene Autry that was sponsored by Netflix! Well now Netflix put up the cut feed of some of the performances from that awesome show and I had to share it with you because what I shot wasn’t nearly as good!
BTW I can’t wait to see Band From TV again because they were so good. So if you have a chance to see them I highly suggest it because I promise you won’t be disappointed!
For years I have been saying I would go see Band From TV, and on Saturday I finally did it! OMG these guys and gals sing and play as good as they act. Saturday night’s lineup included James Denton, Jesse Spencer, Greg Grunberg, Bob Guiney, Hayden Panittere, Jorge Garcia, Teri Hatcher, Zach Levi and Hugh Laurie. Laurie wasn’t scheduled to be there, but when he came on stage I nearly plotzed. It was so cool to see him playing a keyboard a few feet away from me after watching him do it for all these years on House. Talking about House, Jesse Spencer plays a mean violin, who knew you could play a mean violin? Jorge Garcia was a late add, and I am so happy he was there what a voice on him! It was also cool to see the Heroes guys and gal jam. In fact before the show started Christine Rose aka Angela Petrelli was standing next to me and all I wanted to do was ask her for spoilers for the new season but then the band came on. James Denton was also really good, I loved his Viva Las Vegas. Now I can’t believe I admitting this, but Teri Hatcher was a lot better than I thought.
It was great to see some to see some of the actors and actresses from my favorite TV shows like House, Lost, Desperate Housewives and Heroes jam together in Band From TV, but it is also admirable of these guys donate all the money to charity! I respect the actors who give back and this group let’s us be a part of it. So if you get a chance to see Band From TV live, I know I won’t wait another 2 years, do it!!!
BTW sorry about the editing and sound on the video, I am new to editing and have not figured it out yet.
Band From TV, that is appropriately named because the Band is made up with people From TV, is putting on a free show this Saturday at The Autry National Center in Griffith Park. For years I have been saying I am going to see them live, but I have never done it. That was until now because I am going to to do it on Saturday. If you are in the LA area, you should also do it because not only can you see some your favorite TV stars, but they are actually really good.
If you have never heard their music, listen to it on the Band From TV's MySpace and make sure to come out and support them on Saturday at The Autry National Center at 7p!!!
Band From TV will be performing(post-game) at the OC Stadium at an Orange County Flyers Professional Baseball Game on July 21. The OC Flyers is part owned by James Denton!
**Tickets are $5.00 plus you will also need to purchase a ticket to the baseball game.
Band from TV is made up Hugh Laurie from House, James Denton from Desperate Housewives, Greg Grunberg from Heroes, Bob Guiney from The Bachelor and few other TV actors. Maybe it is because I like Hugh Laurie so much, but I really want to see them live!
