From its unlikely beginnings, the legend of The Dan Band has spread from Tinseltown to New York City, with the grand frontier of television being next. In Spring 2005, Finnerty’s spectacular live performance will be captured in a Bravo special executive-produced by none other than Steven Spielberg and directed by Charlie’s Angels director McG.
And now, The Dan Band makes its Side One Dummy Records debut 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. Thrill to the soaring medley of Laura Brannigan’s “Gloria” and Toni Basil’s “Mickey.” Exult to the speeded-up punk-rock of their Abba medley. Buckle up for the a profanity-laced Irene Cara tribute, featuring “Flashdance” and “Fame.” There are also the show-stoppers, like their “Genie in a Bottle/Slave 4 U” medley, the high octane “Shoop/No Scrubs” combo, and Tyler’s “Eclipse,” naturally.
If you haven’t noticed, The Dan Band covers songs primarily by ‘80s & ‘90s divas, with Finnerty sporting Jiffy Lube utilitarian garb and backwards baseball cap and his back-up singers clothed like nerdy accountants. 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 calls it “one of the hottest tickets in town” and it’s described by LA Weekly as “Smashmouth meets Wilson Phillips.” The success of the band is still amusing to Finnerty, who says “I only started this to promote my lame acting career.”
