Dan Zanes & FriendsWe ran a ticket giveaway to the Dan Zanes & Friends concert at SOPAC coming up on June 29 back in April. Since then, DZ decided to make the show a Song Gusto Hour, a chance for families and people of all ages to gather and sing at the top of their lungs with Dan and the band. The Song Gusto Hour atmosphere will be loose, communal, and festive. Songbooks are available online to download and families are invited to bring their own instruments so they can sing and play along!

Dan Zanes and Friends, my personal all time favorite family band, perform exuberant, handmade 21st century social music for enthusiastic crowds of families. These Grammy Award Winners occupy a unique place in American music where sea shanties, English music hall, North American and West Indian folk music, Mexican Son Jarocho, the spirit of early rock-and-roll and soulful originals collide. It is an old-fashioned interactive experience where people of all-ages sing and dance with wild abandon to the sound of drums, upright bass, mandolin, electric guitar, trumpet, fiddle and spoons. A Dan Zanes show is always a big musical party.

Thanks to the generosity of SOPAC, we have two more Family 4-Pack of tickets to give away for the Dan Zanes Song Gusto Hour at SOPAC on Saturday, June 29 at 11 am.
