TV show description:      
This TV series follows the lives of four friends who spend their spare time performing in a wedding band called “Mother of the Bride.”

A perennial bachelor and the band’s lead singer, Tommy (Brian Austin Green) is sexy and stylish. He’s the life of the party on stage and in the bedroom. A bad boy with a good heart, Tommy’s philosophy and band credo is “Make it the big night, not just for the bride and groom, but for everybody.” He sometimes goes a little too far so it helps to have a great band to back him up.

Stevie (Harold Perrineau) is the new bassist in the band, but he’s also a seasoned vet who’s rubbed shoulder with all the greats in the music industry. A session musician for more than 20 years, Stevie has recorded with the who’s who’s of the music business. However, he’s never seen on an album cover because he’s never been an “official member” of a band — until now. He still records with today’s hit-makers, but he feels like a real rock star when he plays with these guys.

For every guy with a wife, kids and career, Eddie (Peter Cambor) is their guitar hero. Monday thru Friday, he’s a responsible dad and husband who juggles PowerPoint presentations, playdates, and occasional date nights. On Saturdays, he packs the amps and band gear into the mini-van and becomes a weekend rock god. He’s the one guy in the band who has to do the “check-in call” with his wife between sets. Eddie’s only solo time is when he gets to jam on stage. Once off-stage, he has to help his best friend, Tommy, get out of his own jams.

Barry (Derek Mille) has always been behind his brother Eddie -– on stage, in looks and popularity, even in age. Barry’s five months younger. From laser shows to pyrotechnics to rotating drumkits, he’s all about bringing the arena rock experience to black-tie events.

Ingrid (Kathryn Fiore) and Eddie’s two kids love it when their parents tell the story of how they met — she fell in love watching him perform at the first wedding the band ever played. The part of the story they leave out, however, is how they hooked up in the coat-check room during the father-daughter dance. Ingrid is willing to give Eddie a “hall pass” to play in the band on weekends, but he has to be careful about straying too far. She’s Seattle’s most-decorated CSI detective, which means her forensics skill set can pick up microscopic evidence of the raucous out-of-control situations Tommy often pulls him into.

Roxie Rutherford (Melora Hardin) owns Seattle’s premiere wedding and events planning firm, Rutherford Events. There’s nothing she won’t do for a client -– including shipping sand in from Fiji for an island-themed party. Roxie’s the person behind the most important moments and best nights in people’s lives. Roxie and Tommy are two strong alpha personalities constantly struggling over who gets their way.

Rachel (Jenny Wade) is the junior wedding planner who can’t seem to plan her own wedding. Despite being recently promoted, Rachel is still treated like Roxie’s personal assistant. With an unorthodox mix of neuroses and earthy sexiness, Rachel is torn between Rutherford and Tommy. She’s often forced to carry the stress from the band’s antics on her slender shoulders. And since Rachel has a hard time saying no, she tends to service everyone else’s life before dealing with her own.

Series Finale:     
Episode #10 — End of the World As We Know It
After a falling-out with Rutherford, the guys are recruited by Roxie’s rival event planner (and former assistant) Emily Corgy (guest Erinn Hayes) to play an “End of the World” party. The guys don’t feel good about the career move after learning Tommy and Emily have started dating. Worlds collide when they learn the event they’re scheduled to play has been double-booked with another “End of the World” party thrown by Rutherford. Even worse, it’s headlined by Mother of the Bride’s rival – the Def Leppard tribute band Armageddon It (fronted by guest Ken Marino). It’s a recipe for disaster.
First aired: January 19, 2013

    I guess this well written, humorous show had to be cancelled since it did not have the typical 5 poo-poo/pee-pee/trouser snake/boobies/sex jokes per minute with the overbearing laugh track in case you weren’t sure when you were supposed to laugh. What a shame.

  2. Clauia says

    this show is great, the music is great and the characters are great. there was never enough hype or publicity about the show. how do you expect a show to last, if nobody knows abou it.

    give it another chance and let people know aboutit

  3. Shelley says

    So bummed they cancelled this show!!! Omg it was so good. It was funny and the music was great. The characters are hiliarious. So sad that they cancelled it. It feels like they don’t give good shows enough time to get noticed but they keep all the reality crap. PLEASE keep it!!!

  5. Cyrene says

    This show is witty & amazing. The cast is fantastic with great harmony. So many shows are never really given a chance. We need more comedy on television in the a world where anyone can get a reality show and crime dramas.

  6. CC says

    Do not cancel this show…..PLEASE!!!!! I LOVE IT, and others do too. There are not enough people who know about the show yet. IT is so funny, I love all the guys, love their comedy, their personalities, and of course the music. ROXIE is HILARIOUS…..TBS you are making a mistake to cancel this show. How can you think to pick up cougar town, and drop WEDDING BAND…..surely you guys have more vision than that……DONT DISAPPOINT US

  7. Director says

    Lighthearted, fun show, I hope they keep it going after one. (And I’m an old cynic so that should say something. :) )

    Its a well put together show, with some tounge in cheek comments. There isn’t much on Tv these days that has some originality to it, thier song arrangement & how they are performed are well thought out & add to the unexpected way they perform them as well. I would say a soundtrack Album/CD would not be a miss aswell, whats not saying that some of the songs could quite easly be played on radio as well, which would be another outlet for the show & possibly attract some attention for the show…Keep it original & keep up with the song arrangemant.

  9. James Shearon says

    Yes! It’s a great show…. I’m a music lover like the guys in the show. And there’s not any shows about guys playing in a rock band. Keep it on for 10 seasons…. ‘Cause the show we have today are not that good. Well… The walking dead, cougar town, conan, Californication and willfred. So don’t take this awesome show after only one season. Give it 10 seasons. ‘Cause if you give more then ten it would be dumb. Look what happen to Smallville. After season five it well… Let’s just got ******. Let’s not do the same with this show.
