The Dan Band is a comedy group from Los Angeles, California, formed by an actor/comedian Dan Finnerty. The band is best known for its covers of originally female-performed pop songs, with additional obscenities and swearing. Their live show has become a clip of Los Angeles night life, with Entertainment Weekly naming it "the hottest ticket in town, shit!" Dan has produced notable performances in the movies such as Old School (singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart"), The Terminal, Starsky & Hutch, where he appeared Roberta Flack's "Feel Like Makin' Love" at a Bat Mitzvah, and most freshly The Hangover (performing Candy Shop and Fame) in a wedding scene reminiscent of his act in the Old School.
In the year 2005, they introduced The Dan Band Live, their live full length first album. They got attention because of their expletive-heavy version of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," as well as their cover versions of "Lady" by Styx, "Milkshake" by Kelis, Toni Basil's "Mickey," and several others. They filmed 1hour concert special of their live show named Dan Finnerty & The Dan Band: I Am Woman, for the Bravo network, which was directed by Mc G and executive produced by Steven Spielberg.
