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 bar-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and most recently in hit comedy 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 Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, Ellen and The Late Late Show. Steven Spielberg has signed on to executive produce Dan's one hour concert special “The Dan Band: I Am Woman”, directed by McG.
Finnerty, a former member of the group STOMP, has released two CDs. “THE DAN BAND LIVE” followed by “HO – A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS".
“I’m obsessed with The Dan Band. It’s the best thing I’ve ever seen in my life, and I’ll go to every show they ever have.” actress Laura Dern
