Everyone’s favorite fictional rock band, The Wonders, reunited at the Roxy in Los Angeles on Tuesday to play their fictional smash hit from the 1996 movie “That Thing You Do!” And it was kind of tight.
Well, three-fourths of them did anyway. The band’s drummer, Shades (Tom Everett Scott), its lead singer, Jimmy (Johnathon Schaech), and the unnamed bass player (Ethan Embry) all got together onstage. Sadly, the band’s fourth member, Lenny (Steve Zahn) wasn’t present, but they still sounded pretty good.
Somewhat ironically, Entertainment Weekly reported less than a year ago that Embry hated the song. “I remember it reached that point of, like, ‘I can’t play this song one more time,’” he said. That said, he looked like he was having a pretty good time on Tuesday night.
