Format: Audio CD
Dan Finnerty (husband of famed comic actress Kathy Najimy!) has taken a gimmic (boys singing girl songs without changing the pronouns) and played it straight, much to the audience's benefit.

He doesn't try to channel Laura Brannigan, Abba or Britney Spears, he sings like a macho guy (and quite well) trying to do these songs justice in the conviction department. The result is hilarious. Throw in a few F-words and you will rolling on the ground!

If you like Wm. Shatner's "Has Been," any of Richard Cheese's lounge covers, or the equally wacky band Nouveau Vague, you will eat this S**T up with a spoon.

What makes this band hip is that Finnerty doesn't just serve up feminist anthemics like "I Am Woman," but also current radio faves like Kelis's "Milkshake." Also, the many medleys offered here are inspired, like the Wilsons' "Hold on" mixed with Suzanne Vega's "Luka," turning the originals' sappiness into rock-n-roll happiness!

Not that any of you out there might care, but the Dan Band is an L.A. institution. The result of drunken karaoke with friends, Dan Finnerty formed the Dan Band to cover female written-and-identified songs from the pop firmament. He dresses like a gas station attendant, and is flanked by two back-up males in full Blues Brothers suits. They perform songs like "Genie in a Bottle" and "You Oughta Know" with their gender-specific pronouns, and play off the audience's disbelief that here's a straight man in thrall to songs that are mainly about female sexuality and man troubles. Funny it is -a novelty, in fact - yet Finnerty is also a fine singer, and his exaggerations illuminate the gender wars while italicizing them. Live! is recorded evidence enough of their stage prowess, though I suppose it helps to know the visual aspect of the group, too. But I've played this for friends who've never seen them, and their reactions where the same as mine: wonder, laughter, enjoyment. So, world, it's your choice. Who knows - if their CD does well enough, you might get to see them for yourself, where they will no doubt perform their brilliant version of the worst song ever written, "Muskrat Love", not included here due to licensing problems (or the humorlessness of its originators).

I just heard this on Saturday on the way to a bachelor party. I had no idea what it was going to be, but I was struck at both how funny and how good these songs were. "Total Eclipse of the Heart"'s live version is probably the best, but "Tryone" is right up there as well.

The last two tracks are studio-recorded songs, the rest is a live set and The Dan Band sounds great live. Check it out.

I was working at the dining room table last summer with the TV on as background noise. I was compelled to abandon my work and was drawn into the room where Bravo was airing "I Am Woman" -- the Dan Band Show. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! I HAD to have the CD. Since then, I've bought two additional copies for friends. This is very funny, very entertaining, very original stuff. I am totally hooked.

Since you're here, you're probably interested in the CD. It is well worth the money! I loved their version of "Total Ecclipse of the Heart" from the movie OLD SCHOOL. Two versions of that song are on there(a studio and a live version) along with a wide selection of other female songs. Do not be fooled into thinking this is just a comedy CD. The Dan Band appears to put on a very high energy live show. It is a fun listen because of this. It is a great CD because these guys put out there rendition of the songs guys sometimes catch themselves singing, and they do it well without changing the words.

This album is the best, Dan Finnerty breaks it down with The Dan Band, rockin out to awesomest girl songs we all dance party to. If you've ever seen the movie "Old School", you already know how totally hilarious their rendition of "Total Eclipse Of the Heart" is - and the rest of the album doesn't disappoint! Great to pop on for an inpromtu dance party, a dull day, or if you feel like rockin out. "The Dan Band - Live" is completely BITCHIN!

I first hear of the Dan Band when I watched the movie wedding crashers. I tried to pick up the movie soundtrack just for the song they perform in that movie. When I found out it was actualy a real band I had to have their CD. I picked it up and listen to it frequently it's fan FAN-FU*KINGTASTIC!!! Pick it up and laugh your head off.
