FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Dan Band Comes to The Wilbur
WHAT: On Saturday, September 20th, 2014, The Dan Band are coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.
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, as well as his appearance as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and again as the inappropriate wedding singer in the record breaking hit The Hangover.
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, The L.A. Times, Variety, Rolling Stone among others, and prompted Entertainment Weekly to dub it “The hottest ticket in Hollywood.”
THE DAN BAND plays to sold out crowds from Los Angeles to New York 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.
Finnerty, a recurring correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and former member of the group STOMP, has released two CDs. “THE DAN BAND LIVE” followed by “HO – A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS” and is currently working on a third for Comedy Central Records called “The Wedding Album”.
