For many years there have been a lot of musicians who fancy themselves actors. Rarely do things go the other way and even rarer still does it result in anything truly listen-able. Band From TV is definitely in the exception category as not only does the band feature some of the most well-known actors from some of the hottest shows on television, but they all are actually competent musicians that collectively cover some great songs. This isn’t an ego thing, nor is it to make money for an extra wing on their house. No, this is celebrities using their powers for good by using the spotlight being a high profile actor grants them to raise money for their favorite charities. This whole thing was started by Greg Grunberg, he of Heroes fame, although you probably also know him from Felicity and Alias. Currently, Band From TV has a DVD/CD combo, called “Hoggin’ All The Covers,” available for purchase exclusively on Amazon and all of the proceeds go directly to the charities that each actor has chosen to support. But who better to convince you to buy this set than Greg Grunberg himself:
