Review from Ashley Blair

The Dan Band was great! The only down side to the event was, it was standing room only.

More Information


Los Angeles’s premier comedy band, The Dan Band, comes to the Grove of Anaheim . Known for their explicit covers of female-performed pop songs, The Dan Band’s live show has become a staple of Los Angeles nightlife.

The Dan Band was created by actor/comedian Dan Finnerty and has appeared in multiple hilarious comedy films such as Old School (who could ever forget their memorable wedding reception performance of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart”?), Starsky & Hutch, and most recently The Hangover. The band is also well known for their expletive-heavy versions “Lady” by Styx, “Milkshake” by Kelis, Toni Basil’s “Mickey,” and many others. Finnerty and The Dan Band put on a show that is equal parts high-energy singing, dancing and blowing the audience’s collective mind. Entertainment Weekly has dubbed The Dan Band, “the hottest ticket in town.”

In Spring 2005, Finnerty’s spectacular live performance was captured in a Bravo special executive-produced by none other than Steven Spielberg and directed by Charlie’s Angels director McG in 2006 entitled Dan Finnerty & the Dan Band I am Woman. The Dan Band made its Side One Dummy Records debut in 2006 with an album that captures its raucous, no-holds-barred stage extravaganza in all its glory, recorded live at the Hollywood Avalon and including many of the group’s all-time classics. Exult to the speeded-up punk-rock of their Abba medley and buckle up for a profanity-laced Irene Cara tribute, featuring “Flashdance” and “Fame.” The record has sold over 40,000 copies to date.

For the show at the Grove, Dan Finnerty will bring his very own brand of naughty and nice to the holidays with songs from his album “HO: A DAN BAND XMAS” along with a full set of The Dan Band’s ingenious cover songs. “HO” is full of Finnerty originals destined to become humorous holiday classics, tunes like the lustful “I Wanna Rock U Hard This Xmas,” “Ho Ho Ho” – an R&B send up about Santa’s encounter with a lady of the night and the PC-minded “Christmakwanzakah.” The hilarious video for “Please Don’t Bomb Nobody This Holiday,” features many celebrity cameos, including Sheryl Crow, Christina Applegate, Nicole Scherzinger from The Pussycat Dolls, Kyle Gass from Tenacious D, Neil Patrick Harris, Meg Ryan, Macy Gray, Christopher Guest, among others. Not one to completely forget his sensitive lady ballad roots, Finnerty also provides “Mrs. Claus,” an inspirational number that urges Santa’s overlooked mate to stand up for herself and be counted.
