  • St. Petersburg, Florida - "A Gifted Man" is CBS' hottest new fall series and the show's lead character, Patrick Wilson, was back in town Saturday night.

    The Tampa Bay native was playing on stage in front of a sold out crowd at a club called LOCAL 662 in St. Petersburg. Wilson played the drums while his brothers Mark and Paul also performed on stage with him in a band named "Van Wilson."

    The event was held as a fundraiser to raise money for the St. Petersburg Free Clinic.

    Patrick Wilson says, "I feel like if you can do something you're passionate about and have a great time you know then it doesn't feel like a dinner when everyone is in suits and ties and you're giving money."

    Wilson adds, "Those events are certainly important. But for us if you can get the common person that may just want to come out and have a good time and hear some music and give to charity - especially a very noble one like the free clinic - then we're in good shape."

    Organizers say it's fitting that the band is raising money for the St. Petersburg Free Clinic, because Dr. Holt, the character Patrick plays on "A Gifted Man," leaves his private practice to help a free clinic.
