FROM ‘OLD SCHOOL’ TO ‘THE HANGOVER’, THE DAN BAND BRINGS THE MUSIC AND THE FUNNY TO DEADWOOD MOUNTAIN GRAND
- Category: News
DEADWOOD, S.D. (07/17/17) – Dan Finnerty caught America’s attention as the foul-mouthed wedding singer in the box-office smash ‘Old School’, performing his now-infamous rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart. He went on to appear as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singer in ‘Starsky & Hutch’, and again as the inappropriate wedding singer in the record breaking hit, ‘The Hangover’ and on Friday, September 8th he’ll bring that irreverent humor to Deadwood Mountain Grand for a concert and comedy performance.
What started as a drunken joke for Finnerty singing I Am Woman at a karaoke bar has spiraled out of control into The Dan Band – a cult phenomenon that has garnered rave reviews from the New York Times, L.A. Times, Rolling Stone and Variety and prompted Entertainment Weekly to dub them “The hottest ticket in Hollywood.”
“Deadwood Mountain Grand loves comedy and music and The Dan Band fits both genres like a glove,” said Susan Kightlinger, General Manager at Deadwood Mountain Grand. “We can’t wait to see what these guys bring to our venue.”
The Dan Band plays to sold-out crowds across the nation and has appeared on numerous shows including The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ellen, The Late Late Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Last Comic Standing, The Guys Choice Awards and caught the attention of Steven Spielberg who signed on to executive produce Dan’s one hour concert special ‘The Dan Band: I Am Woman,’” directed by McG.
The Dan Band has released three albums, ‘The Dan Band Live’, ‘HO – A Dan Band Christmas’, and this year released ‘The Wedding Album’ which debuted at the top of the iTunes Comedy Charts and featured collaborations with Train, Nicole Schezinger, Bridget Everett and Rob Thomas.
