February 5, 2012
One of the hottest bands in children’s music, Grammy Award–winners Dan Zanes and Friends create fun-filled, rockin’ dance parties wherever they go, performing exuberant, handmade 21st-century music that transcends language, genre and age. Kids bounce to the catchy and playful tunes while adults appreciate the hip musicality that attracts collaborators such as Deborah Harry, Lou Reed and the Blind Boys of Alabama. Dan Zanes and Friends occupy a unique place in American music where sea shanties, North American and West Indian folk music, Mexican son jarocho, early rock and soulful originals come together in an extravaganza fit for kids and kid sympathizers alike.
