THE DAN BAND
The Workman’s Club

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 spiralled out of control into THE DAN BAND – a cult phenomenon that has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, The L.A. Times, Rolling Stone, Variety 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.
Dan recently made a surprise cameo appearance in Fetty Wap/Kid Ink’s music video for their new hit song, “Promise,” which went viral in its first week with over 7 million views.
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 Scherzinger, Bridget Everett and Rob Thomas.
THE DAN BAND tours all over the country, from rock venues to theatres to comedy clubs to corporate events and the occasional high-profile wedding.
