Who knew there was even a band called The Scrantones? Fans of The Office, obviously. This weekend, in Scranton, PA, The Scrantones will be performing at The Office Convention. The Weezer website says that bassist Scott Shriner will be sitting in with The Scrantones though an article about the convention lists the following musicians: Bob Thiele (Bonnie Raitt, Lou Reed) guitar, vocals; Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Cracker), bass; Brian MacLeod (Sheryl Crow, Madonna, Tears For Fears), drums; and Roger Manning (Beck, Blink-182, Jellyfish), keyboards.
You probably recognize The Scrantones big hit – the theme song to The Office.
