The Band From TV will be appearing at the annual “Hollywood Christmas Tree Lighting at The Grove,” on Sunday, November 23.
The charity band made up of television stars – including Hugh Laurie, Greg Grunberg, Teri Hatcher, James Denton, Bob Guiney – recently released their first CD/DVD, Hoggin All The Covers. The band was started in 2006 to provide funding for several worthwhile charities – Save the Children, The Art of Elysium, the Child Abuse Prevention Program and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence – and to raise money through music to help those in need.
Grunberg had the idea to establish the band after being asked to get a few celebrities to play together at the House Of Blues for charity. The event sparked a great amount of interest, and has led to a number of gigs in the US which have, according to Hugh Laurie, “raised a gargantuan sum of money for charity.”
Sunday’s show, hosted by Jon Lovitz, will also feature performances by Grammy Award-winner Natalie Cole, the HB Barnum New Life Choir, and Straight No Chaser, a talented A Capella group best known for their rendition of “12 Days of Christmas.”
The show starts at 7:30pm, and will be held at The Grove, 189 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles. More information can be found at www.thegrovela.com.
