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”.
Tickets for The Dan Band start at $12.
Join Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of the legendary band Traffic, Dave Mason for an evening of rock music history as he retraces the earliest days of his career with the music of Traffic and later, the classic recordings that launched his successful solo career in a two act presentation. In addition to songs you haven’t heard performed in years, you’ll see rare historic images as Dave spins tales of those times for an evening that will be long remembered.
After extensive touring with Traffic throughout the UK and Europe, Mason headed for the USA to pursue a solo career. He struck international gold with his debut album ‘Alone Together’, which is considered a seminal rock classic. It’s known for the marbleize vinyl, vertical gatefold packaging, the hits ‘Only You Know And I Know’, ‘World In Changes’, ‘Shouldn’t Have Took More Than you Gave’ and more. The album has sold millions of copies. Five highly successful albums for the CBS/Sony label followed, four of which received gold album certification in the US. His next album Let It Flow sold millions of copies and contains another major Mason classic ‘We Just Disagree’. In addition to performing to sold-out audiences and being a permanent staple in record collections and hearts of fans around the world, Mason’s unique guitar work can be heard on many landmark albums and songs such as the Rolling Stones’ Beggar’s Banquet, George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, Paul McCartney’s Listen To What The Man Said and Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland. Hendrix’s major rock standard ‘All Along The Watchtower’ features Dave playing the acoustic guitars before Hendrix’s soaring entrance onto the track.
Dave Mason’s career spans several important rock eras, and encompasses his work as a producer, performer, songwriter, and consummate guitarist. In 2004, Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Tickets for Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam start at $26.
The Reverend Horton Heat is the stage name of American musician Jim Heath as well as the name of his Dallas, Texas-based psychobilly trio. Heath is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. One reviewer calls Heath the “godfather of modern rockabilly and psychobilly.”
The group originally formed in 1985, playing its first gigs in Dallas’s Deep Ellum neighborhood. Its current members are Jim “Reverend Horton” Heath on guitar and lead vocals, Jimbo Wallace on the upright bass, and Scott Churilla on drums. The band signed to Victory Records on November 27, 2012, and released their eleventh studio album, REV, on January 21, 2014.
Their sound is self-described as “country-fed punkabilly”. Some of their songs could also be described as psychobilly. Their music is a mixture of country, surf, punk, big band, swing, and rockabilly, all played loud and energetically with lyrics that are often humorous. The band has achieved success within the genre and even in mainstream America with their songs being featured in video games and commercials.
Tickets for Reverend Horton Heat start at $10.
