  • Anyone watch Wedding Band?

    Pretty entertaining. The music was overdubbed, but pretty well enacted, and the rest was like BWTB threads on steroids.

      Goofy fun. The bells/violin version of "Frankenstein" while the room waited for the bride was chuckle worthy.



      Plays on stereotypes tho'.... dumbass drummer, rockstar singer/guitarist who gets all the ******************** etc....there's more depth there if they want to get it.....but it's Bryan Austin Green/American Pie style humor and was worth a few smiles and giggles.



      If I'm flipping, I'll stop and watch, but it won't be a destination show for me.

          Well I got a kick out of Wedding Band, is it cliche? You bet, but years ago I worked as a banquet waiter (great time of my life btw, just had a ball) and we saw everything you could possibly imagine at a wedding reception. The bride getting her canoe paddled under the table by one of the groomsman while the groom was giving a drunken speech was priceless. Saw a couple 'marriages' pretty much turn into instant divorces within 2 hours. This was back in the 80's before DJ's and during it all the band simply 'played on' so to speak. One of my favorites was the gay guy that got married to a really really smokin' hot chick, later he asked if the male waitstaff could 'help' him get his wife to their room because she was to drunk. What he actually wanted was for us to 'entertain' her on her wedding night will he went after his boyfriend.

            I really need to book some better weddings...or start paying better attention to what's going on behind the scenes!

              I got a kick out of it too. And it was my first exposure to the phrase, "paddling the pink canoe". I need to brush up on my erotic slang.

                Its probably alot easier to see whats going on as the waitstaff, those were just some of the crazier things, I was in my early 20's at the time we were kinda like wow look at this. Looking back on it 25 years later I'm like HOLY ****************!

                  I've always wondered what those waitstaff girls are talking to each other and giggling about....

                    The show wasn't terrible but I wonder how long they're going to be able to come up with new material. They burned up a lot of stuff in the first episode and people generally don't want to see them rehash the same stuff every week.

                      Most of it was pretty damn funny but also really damn sad. You would get jealous bridesmaids that had a crush on or some other issue with the groom basically poison the marriage at the reception, wouldn't want to do that BEFORE dad spent a fortune on this BS, but now that I've had enough to drink I'll tell my BFF what I

                      really think. The guys could be just as bad. Of course all of these people were way to young to be married but damn someone just had to have a party.

                          Yeah, I'm sure that's a lot of it. And more so back in the day. Just because of the types of weddings we play (and the type of band we are) we rarely play for any really young couples. Most are 30ish and older. But with some we're definately musing afterwards how long they'll be together. Some just don't seem happy that DAY. Last one we played the couple and all the guest flew out from New York to San Francisco for a big, expensive shindig. I don't think the bride smiled ONCE the entire day. Very weird.



                          I do know of one couple we played for that's already divorced. IIRC she ended up married to one of the groomsmen....

                              That's probably all your fault... you should know better than to play tracks from Dirty Dancing at a wedding!!!
