My goodness - all these positive reviews - have these people ever seen live comedy or heard GOOD music?

If you like clever comedy or have a musical ear at all, do yourself a favor and look for another option. Lacked cleverness, often out of...continued

This was a lot of fun. I've seen their act on Scrubs and they were even better live. They were funny and entertaining and really made acapella cool. I'd definitely catch them again if they were in the area. Great night out!

This was a lot of fun. Great harmony and entertainment. If you appreciate silliness as much as some of us do, you should not miss it.

Description

The Blanks, who appear on the show Scrubs as “Ted’s Band,” is a quartet of friends who like to sing a cappella music. Based in Los Angeles, The Blanks perform and sing family-friendly entertainment with plenty of comedy. They sing a cappella versions of popular TV show theme songs ranging from “Charles In Charge” to “Six Million Dollar Man,” and commercial jingles like “By Mennen.” They’ve put words to songs without lyrics, such as the “Good Old Days,” the theme from The Little Rascals. The only instruments you’ll find on stage are talking toys – that’s right, four grown men who still play with action figures. Not ones to rest on their laurels nor teeter on the edge of rebellion and artistic bravado with their choice of deodorant commrcials, the Blanks wrote some original numbers that sound like songs even they might want to cover!

To tell the story of the Blanks is to tell the tale of four unique individuals that didn’t find each other through a reality show contest, Craigslist ads, social networking site searches or even the fallout of doomed bands fighting over the drummer’s red M&M’s (thus no drummer allowed). Asked individually if this was their dream gig, they might hesitate, but as a collective whole it’s pretty clear that there was some cosmic kismet at work.
