Delivering equal parts comedy and heart, Wedding Band centres on the bromance between four likable but occasionally reckless young men who can't figure out their own lives.
One thing they have figured out, however, is that weddings are the wildest parties in town. After all, the groupies are bridesmaids, the drinks are free and the best part - there's a paycheck waiting at the end of the night.
And it's not just weddings. Mother of the Bride also brings the party to bar mitzvahs, high-school reunions and even bachelorette parties.
On lead vocals and playing the crowd is perennial bachelor Tommy (Brian Austin Green). Shredding it on guitar is his best friend and married father of two, Eddie (Peter Cambor).
Behind Eddie on drums –and everything else in life – is his rock-obsessed brother, Barry (Derek Miller), whose mission is to bring the arena-rock spectacle to black-tie events.
New to the band is Stevie (Harold Perrineau), a bassist and session musician who's jammed with all the big rock giants, "from AC to ZZ," but he's never been an official member of a band until Mother of the Bride.
Together these four guys provide the soundtracks to other people's lives. But now the band is ready to take things to the next level.
That means attracting the attention of top event manager Roxie Rutherford (Melora Hardin) and her novice associate Rachel (Jenny Wade) and keeping Eddie out of trouble with his wife, Ingrid (Kathryn Fiore).
