So you read the title and now you feel like you should know who The Dan Band is. Or probably, why do you know who The Dan Band is? Well, if you're a fan of THE HANGOVER or OLD SCHOOL then you definitely know why! The band made their television debut on OLD SCHOOL with "Total Eclipse of The Heart" - a very foul-mouthed, hilarious, "what-did-he-just-say" version of the song.
The band is known to take classic women sung songs and turn them into an amazing rendition you want to hear all of the time. In fact, if you're like most guys after watching these movies, you wanted them to play at your wedding. Well guess what? YOU CAN! I'm not saying you can afford them or they'll be available, but you can contact them and see if they'll perform at your wedding too.
So when will they be in Charlotte? Mark your calendars for NOVEMBER 7th at The Fillmore in the NC Music Factory. They are well-known to have sold-out shows after being featured on Comedy Central and appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Ellen, Spike TV's Guy Choice Awards and The Tonight Show! So be sure to book your tickets ASAP.

Ford Productions presents the inaugural What the Folk Music Festival on April 11th from 5pm-10pm and April 12th from 11am-10pm at Sewee Outpost located at 4853 US Hwy. 17 in Awendaw, SC. The two day music festival features Todd Snider headlining both nights as well as other bands performing such as The Bottle Rockets, Charlie Mars, Pierce Edens & the Dirty Work, Megan Jean & the KFB, Swamp Candy, Vinegar Creek Constituency, Sierra Elizabeth Ferrell, Doug Jones, Ryan Bonner and a few more surprise guests! Food trucks The Big Southern and Lowcountry Creole will be there along with two beer trucks with the local brews including Palmetto Brewery. Available through Stranger Tickets, admission is $25 on Friday, $35 on Saturday or $50 for limited two day pass. Additionally, camping is available for $20.
"What the Folk Festival was formed through a friendship with Todd Snider and his love of playing in this area. The lineup includes musicians that come close to emulating what Todd does as a singer/songwriter," said festival organizer Brett Ford. "As we plan to make this an annual event, my goal is to continue to have Americana type groups play and get recognized for what they do, since the majority of them don't receive the radio play or media recognition that they deserve."
A portion of proceeds will benefit Carolina Studios, a non-profit that provides at risk students a safe environment to foster creative, educational and career-focusesd initiatives through music technology and media arts.
