Wednesday, January 23Wedding Band, Channel Ten, 7.30pm
IT PROBABLY seemed like a high-concept bull's-eye, a canny combination of music, mateship and romantic entanglements. With a nod to the 2005 movie Wedding Crashers and a few cues from The Hangover films, this twee series focuses on the misadventures of a band of pals who play functions. Their work seems ideally suited to a TV series, with each episode enabling easy access to a fresh situation and bunch of guest characters. The band consists of a handsome lead singer (Brian Austin Green), a sweet married guy (Peter Cambor), a bouncy black guy (Harold Perrineau) and a knockabout Jack Black type (Derek Miller). In the penultimate episode of the 10-part first season, they down beers at a Rocktoberfest bash, suffer a ''sweet 16'' party debacle and befriend Declan Horn (James Marsters), a faded rock idol. At best, their exploits are mildly engaging; at worst, they're blandly predictable.
