Greg Grunberg had the idea for Band from TV after a performance at a House of Blues with several other celebrities garnered a surprising amount of fan interest. Grunberg made several connections that he would later bring together for Band from TV: he appeared on an episode of House ("Sex Kills") starring actor and musician Hugh Laurie, as well as performing at a separate charity event with James Denton and Bob Guiney.
Band from TV made their debut at the 58th Primetime Emmy Awards TV Guide afterparty and as of 2007 plays high-paying charity concerts as well as performing for studio albums. They contributed a song ("You Can't Always Get What You Want") to the House M.D. Original Television Soundtrack, as well as releasing their own album: Hoggin' All the Covers (recorded in July 2007).
Band from TV appeared on the 2008 Idol Gives Back charity fundraiser with Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats", and made their first official TV appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on January 16, 2009, performing Billy Preston's "Will It Go Round in Circles". On December 4, 2010, Band From TV performed at the Avalon in honor of Ronnie Lippin and to raise money for the Ronnie Lippin Cancer Information Resource Line. Stars such as Hugh Laurie and Jesse Spencer were on hand for the show as Jesse sung "John O'Reilly" by Charlie Robison.
Band from TV has not been very active following nearly steady performances from April 2008 to June 2012, with only one performance in 2013, none in 2014, and one in 2015.
