For Christmas I received a ticket to see Band from TV at the Fallsview Casino on Sunday, March 7, 2010. And I wasn't the only one going - Dave, Mikol, Renee and I were all going to go see some of our favourite actors ROCK IT in Niagara Falls!!! I couldn't wait!!
ET Canada announced it http://www.bandfromtv.org/videos/view/?mid=26151_video_37 and then all of the sudden it seemed like it was here and over.
Unfortunately security was really strict and I didn't actually take any pictures:( I'm sharing some of the ones I found on-line so that you can enjoy part of the experience too.
BAND FROM TV members include Greg Grunberg & Adrian Pasdar from HEREOS, Hugh Laurie & Jesse Spencer from HOUSE, James Denton from DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, Scott Grimes from ER, and Bob Guiney from THE BACHELOR.
OK, so I didn't really find pictures of James Denton or Bob Guiney, but they were definitely there.
The gig started out with Hugh Laurie introducing the show: "Husbands and wives, illicit lovers, people who will become illicit lovers, people who became illicit lovers last night and are now slightly regretting it, high rollers, low rollers and hockey fans - the Avalon Theatre in association with the Fallsview Hotel and Casino are proud to present for your delight, entertainment, edification and sheer shuddering physical pleasure, the one, the only, BAND FROM TV!" http://www.hughlaurie.net/BfTV/bftvintro.wav
The billboard announcing the concert. Too bad they're missing Scott Grimes:-(
Adrian Pasdar - what a cutie! He didn't get a lot of singing time, but really looked like he was having a lot of fun on the stage. Ok, well, maybe not so much in this picture.
Scott Grimes hailing for crowd support. When we went, I was unaware that he was part of the band, but his energy and enthusiasm were contagious and I loved the music he added into the mix.
At one point "Grunny" got out from behind the drums and started looking for people to come and dance with him. So he gets off the stage and goes up and down the aisle grabbing people. My hand was one of the ones he grabbed and he held it the whole way down the aisle before dancing with me in front of the stage. Talk about an amazing first dance EVER! I so wish I had pictures:(
Greg Grunberg - what can I say? I held hands and danced with GREG GRUNBERG at the BAND FROM TV concert at Fallsview Casino on March 7, 2010!!! Yes, that would be Greg Grunberg from "Felicity", "Alias" and "Heroes". Mmm hmm...
Jesse Spencer exhibits some of his crazy cool fiddling skills - so much so that Hugh Laurie and Bob Guiney kneel in awe. I'm not 100% sure, but I think this was during "Devil Went Down to Georgia" performed by Jesse Spencer and James Denton.
Hugh Laurie - if you didn't know already, he is an amazing piano/keyboard player. Here's he's starting the intro to "Baba O'Riley"

Oh yeah, I'm one of the screaming fans you can hear in the audio/video clips. I was completely hoarse by the end of the concert. I LOVED every minute of it!!! Would LOVE to do that again!!!
I'd also love to get their CD, except it's only available through amazon.com which means they don't ship to Canada :-(
