“...There’s thirteen hundred and fifty-two
guitar pickers in Nashville.”
“Nashville Cats,” The Lovin’ Spoonful, 1967
Band is a television series based on the premise that some of the most
talented artists in Nashville have two lives, playing music by night
and working construction by day.
To take advantage of this fact of life in the Nashville music business, the show purchased
an old house in East Nashville, hired only crafty musicians to renovate it, and
formed a band, The House Band.
Producer Adair Kaiser conceived the idea when she realized how many accomplished
artists still work construction jobs. Kaiser, who moved back to her home-town
of Nashville from Los Angeles in 2003, says, “You know you are in Nashville
when your lawn man is nominated for a Grammy, you just saw your painter on Conan,
the guy who lays your tile is Loretta's Lynn's songwriter son-in-law, and the
handy man has to take a few days off to go play Carnegie Hall.”
