The Friends Indeed

From Rocklopedia Fakebandica

A uniformed Salvation-Army-type oompah band, who can take any beautiful melody and turn it into a march. From the "How Not to Manage a Rock Group" episode (4/28/1968) of forgotten television series The Mothers-In-Law.

Led by a fiercely mugging Joe Besser, the fifth (possibly sixth) of the Three Stooges. The titular mothers hire them as their last minute backup band to play "Some Enchanted Evening." The mothers already scared off scheduled rock group The Warts with their squareness and they don't want to waste the nonrefundable studio time.
