The Band from TV
June 15, 2011 3:07 AM   Subscribe

On the keyboards: Dr. House and Dr. Archie Morris. On the guitar, Nathan Petrelli and the plumber. Violin, Dr. Chase. On the drums, Matt Parkman. On the vocals, Bob Guiney. It's the Band from TV, and they do it for charity. Videos.

Reminds me of the Rock Bottom Remainders which has included, amongst others Dave Barry, Stephen King, Amy Tan, Maya Angelou, Ridley Pearson, Scott Turow, Mitch Albom, Barbara Kingsolver, Robert Fulghum, and Matt Groening.

Is this something I'd need a tv to.. wow, they're actually quite good.

Though I think this outfit would put Jeeves' steely reserve to the test.

Jesse Spencer can sing and play violin?

Would not have guessed that in a million years...

Ha! Dig Jamie Denton with the Esquire Tele, because he wasn't appealing enough to begin with.

They look like an absolute blast to see live.

Would you believe I saw 'Band from TV' like six times before I got the joke.

As a professional musician, the horror of this for me is that all these guys are famous, successful and quite adequately employed doing something else entirely and only do this for fun. And they still kick ass.

I'm totally in the wrong business...

You want to really cry, tspae? Doc Hammer of Venture Bros. fame is not only an amazing painter but also a SUPERKICKASS MUSICIAN in addition to his Venture-ing skills.

I've listened to Worn Thin and the other Weep albums every day (usually on repeat) since I bought them.

Every once in a while they invite Hurley to join them on vocals.

When I listen to Ewan McGregor sing, it just pisses me off.
