Weekend Fun For Grown-ups: Win Dan Band Tix!

Many of you are already familiar with The Dan Band, and have been looking forward to their next show. Even if the name doesn’t sound familiar, you’ve probably seen the Dan Band.

In addition to fairly regular concert appearances around southern California and frequent work on Jay Leno’s show(s,) The Dan Band has appeared in movies such as Old School, Starsky & Hutch, and The Hangover.

They’re mostly known for performing covers of songs originally recorded by female artists, in their own unique style with a liberal application of NSFWoYC (Not Safe For Work or Young Children) language.

While good, the video clips linked above don’t really do justice to the live spectacle that is The Dan Band. Luckily, Dan and the boys will be returning to Club Nokia at LA Live this Friday, April 2 and thanks to our friends at Goldenvoice, I’ve got several pairs of tickets for you, dear readers.

Follow me past the jump to find out how to win your tickets, and see a live video clip of The Dan Band from a recent show at Club Nokia…

Want to join me at the show? Leave a note in the comments section with one or more of the following:
a.) your favorite Dan Band song/cover,
b.) song by a female artist or group that you’d like to see The Dan Band perform, and/or
c.) your favorite gender-opposite (female if you’re male, male if you’re female) song to sing at karaoke. Bonus points if you link to video of yourself singing said song.

I’ll start: I’d love to see The Dan Band perform Lady Gaga’s “Lovegame,” and I like to sing the Kiki Dee part of “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” but only if I’ve got a solid partner for the Elton John part. No, you will never (ever) see video of said performance.

Leave your entry below. Winners will be chosen at my whim (or randomly if you all make it too hard to choose, as you usually do,) and notified via email. Don’t want to take a chance? You can purchase tickets here, but get them quick as The Dan Band usually sells out.

Three weeks after this year’s Grammy Awards show, The Dan Band played at Club Nokia. Here is their stunning recreation of Pink’s Grammy performance of “Glitter In The Air.”

  1. I’d love to hear the Dan Band do “I Touch Myself” or “Harper Valley PTA.”

  2. Ah, good choices, Hips. “Harper Valley PTA” is a classic, and I can see Dan killing it with “I Touch Myself.”

  3. I looooove the Dan Band cover of Tyrone and No More Drama. Personally, I’d love to see Dan Band do “And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going” from the musical Dreamgirls. Imagine how epic it would be! :O That, or the Crystals “He Hit Me (It Felt Like a Kiss).”

    As for me, well…I do a killer version of 50 Cent’s Candy Shop…a sort of reverse homage to the Dan Band’s ridonk cover.

  4. 1. ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart’
    2. ‘I Honestly Love You’ by Olivia Newton John
    3. EVERYBODY does ‘Like A Virgin’. Sheesh.
    I will, for these tickets, perform Cheryl Lynn’s ‘To Be Real’ (If an adequate backing track WITH A HORN SECTION can be found).

    I could sing the shit out of Joan Armatrading’s ‘Love and Affection’.

    With a bit of study, I believe I could do justice to something by Abba.


  5. 1. Fame/Flashdance
    2. She Works Hard For The Money by Donna Summer
    3. And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going by Jennifer Holiday, not that Hudson come lately gal.

    I do a mean Hot Stuff/Bad Girls and can hold the long note on Dim All The Lights. I bring it down, way down, with Christina Aguilera’s Beautiful.


  6. a) single ladies (put a ring on it)
    b) i will always love you, either version
    c) wedding bell blues (marry me bill), sans video sadly

  7. Nice one, Aileen. Coincidentally, I also put a Lesley Gore song in my list:

    a) Hold On
    b) You Don’t Own Me by Lesley Gore
    c) Flowerofhighrank nailed it with “Like A Virgin” (ala Lords of the New Church), but “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” (ala Crispin Hellion Glover) is also a good one if it’s on the list.

    RIP Stiv Bators
    and RIP Alex Chilton (unrelated reference but more timely)

  8. Contest is now closed. Winners have been notified and confirmed.

    Great replies, everyone. Wish I had unlimited tickets, as you’re all winners in my book. Thanks for playing, and keep your eyes on this space. More fun coming up all the time.
