‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette’s Band Had a Cultural Moment in the Early 2000s

by Shelby Scott

“NCIS” fans know and love actress Pauley Perrette from her time as the forensic goth genius Abby Sciuto on CBS’s hit show. However, during an earlier interview, the beloved “NCIS” alum revealed her other interests and pursuits, including a pop-cultural moment her band Lo-Ball experienced during the early 2000s.

While “NCIS” premiered in 2003, Perrette remained involved in a collection of bands and pursuits as well. Her band Lo-Ball saw its pop-cultural moment prior to her debut on the naval crime show when one of their songs featured in “Legally Blonde.” The hit film premiered two years prior to the “NCIS” takeoff, capturing audiences in 2001.

Of her time with Lo-Ball, Perrette shared with PopEntertainment, “I’ve been in and out of bands my whole life. That was a great band. I itch to get back in the studio.” For those interested in listening to Lo-Ball’s “Legally Blonde” debut, you can check out their song, “Can’t Get Me Down,” here.

As far as Perrette’s singing career outside of “NCIS” goes, she previously shared, “I sing all the time, but I’m not in a band right now. I mean, I sing around the house. I think everyone should sing every day at some point.”

However, PopEntertainment’s interview came several years ago. And while Perette left the set of “NCIS” several years ago, she doesn’t appear to have returned to her musical roots just yet. However, should we hear of any new Pauley Perrette jams, we’ll be sure to keep you informed.

‘NCIS’ Says Goodbye to Franchise’s Pioneering Actor

“NCIS” has seen a lot of emotional character deaths and departures. However, none have rocked fans harder than the departure of the show’s pioneering character, Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

Monday’s episode saw the conclusion of Gibbs actor, Mark Harmon’s, time on “NCIS” following months of rumors surrounding the actor’s reduced role within this season and his eventual leave. Harmon has served as the show’s lead and an executive producer since premiering in 2003.

Now, as season 19 has quite a long way to go before concluding season 19, it should be interesting to see how “NCIS” performs from here on out.

As for last night’s episode, CBS‘s number one show actually saw a dip in viewership. TVLine reported a total viewership of 7.4 million with a 0.5 demo rating. However, while the show took a bit of a hit, Mark Harmon’s goodbye episode remained the most-watched show of the night. And rightfully so.

Harmon has played the iconic Gibbs for more than 18 seasons. Of the original cast members, only Timothy McGee actor, Sean Murray, remains, alongside Brian Dietzen who came later in the series to play Dr. Jimmy Palmer.

Further, following the closure of Gibbs’ serial killer case and the character’s emotional goodbyes, hopefully next week reveals a little more of what’s next for the new “NCIS” team.
