In Chicago Fire Season 10 Episode 12, Brett, Gallo, Ritter, and Violet plan to use Molly’s Bar for their alt gala and get a live band.

Gallo and Ritter initially plan on ditching the party at Molly’s for an “alt alt party,” but they stay once Capp reveals his hidden talent.

At the alt party, the group Capp booked introduces themself as Jackson Doesn’t Like Bananas. They begin to play and the crew at Firehouse 51 are shocked to discover that Capp is the drummer in the band. It seems that Tony knew about Capp’s talent as he turns around wearing a “Jackson Doesn’t Like Bananas” t-shirt.

It turns out that Flagler plays the drums too, though on Twitter he modestly states that he only “kind of plays the drums.” After the episode aired, Flagler posted a kind shoutout to the rest of the musicians in the episode.

“Last night’s #ChicagoFire episode featured Capp playing drums with 3 talented teenage musicians. Eliza @eliza.lampert , Col @cj_chin287 , and Vincent @vincent_molden_music , it was so nice meeting you all & hanging with you & an utter blast playing with you. Each of you are incredibly talented musicians and I admire your commitment & musical expression. Keep rocking on,” Flagler wrote on Instagram.

Wolf Entertainment also posted an interesting tidbit on Twitter about the song Jackson Doesn’t Like Bananas played. “The actors cast to play in the band are real-life musicians! We scheduled rehearsals for @randyflagler and the rest of the band to practice their rock & roll before filming. The song they’re playing, “Evanston,” was written by #ChicagoFire showrunner Derek Haas!” the Tweet said.
