Barbara Barnett and the Band from TV

Chasing Zebras author Barbara Barnett recently got to hear some of Hugh Laurie’s musical stylings when she attended a Chicago charity show by the Band from TV. In her Blogcritics piece covering the event, Barbara explains how the band came to be:

In 2006, Greg Grunberg (Heroes, Love Bites) formed a unique celebrity cover band appropriately (and punnily) called The Band from TV (as in “banned” from TV). BFTV is a band with a mission; virtually all of their proceeds go straight to the charities each of the band members support through the band’s foundation. Hugh Laurie (House, M.D. on piano, mandolin and vocals), Jesse Spencer (House, M.D. on fiddle), Bob Guiney (The Bachelor, vocals), James Denton (Desperate Housewives, Guitar), Adrian Pasdar (Heroes, Guitar) and Scott Grimes (Robin Hood, piano and vocals) joined Grunberg for a whirlwind tour in Chicago.

Want a sample of Hugh Laurie letting loose on the keyboard? Barbara also posted a brief video from the performance on her personal blog. Check it out:
