Trivia

Unlike his co-stars Fred Armisen (a seasoned musician) and Maya Rudolph (former singer and keyboardist of The Rentals), Bill Hader had little musical experience prior to filming. However, he went on to play the bass guitar throughout most of the concert, much to the surprise of the show's sound mixer who thought he was faking it at first. He also sang lead vocals on the song "Everybody's Moving Around". See more »
