Scrubs’ a cappella band The Blanks and his leader Sam Lloyd – as known as Theodore Buckland in the TV show– fulfilled with jokes, laughter and unconventional music the Shepherd’s Bush O2 Empire last Saturday night.
The four men band performed all the songs they sing in TV show Scrubs starting with the cartoon theme “Underdog” going through other classics of their own like “Charles in charge” and a cover of Lazlo Bane’s “Superman” which is Scrubs’ own theme song.
They’ve been joking with the audience all the time pretending an infamous producer named Marty Roudbert was there to judge their exhibition and decide whether signing a contract for them or not (which in the end was signed by a girl from the first row); but also, before performing the song Superman, they made the people believe that Scrubs’ main actor Zach Braff was in the house.
After a couple of other songs like Flashdance’s “Maniac” (which according to them is the best Christmas carrol ever written) and “Somewhere over the rainbow” they ended the show with a touching and intimate version of Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” where Sam was accompained by a band member who played the ukulele.
He concluded the evening saying “add us on facebook, ‘cause we need friends!” and inviting everybody upstairs where they were signing autographs and taking pictures with the fans for more then one hour after the show.
