The Dan Band
Smirking, wide-eyed frontman Dan Finnerty and The Dan Band vaulted into national prominence in the 2003 film Old School with an expletive-laden version of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Since then, Dan has packed clubs across the country with fans clamoring for his unabashed version of Salt-n-Pepa's sensual "Shoop," Christina Aguilera's teenybopping "Genie in a Bottle," and Alanis Morissette's unhinged angst in "You Oughta Know." The Dan Band’s silly showmanship and penchant for ticklish vulgarity has also led to appearances in The Hangover, where they flipped 50 Cent’s “Candy Shop,” and a one-hour concert special entitled The Dan Band: I Am Woman, which was executive produced by Steven Spielberg after he was charmed by their uncensored version of the theme to Jaws.

Warning: coarse language and hand gestures lacking in prudence
Gutsy, inflammatory, and always passionate, Margaret Cho has become one of the biggest icons in comedy and activism since taking the scene by storm in the early 1990s. From sitcom stints on the groundbreaking All American Girl and Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva to her Grammy-nominated comedy albums and one-woman off-Broadway shows such as Cho Dependent, the comedienne fearlessly speaks her mind about feminism, racism, and gay rights. Most of all, she never forgets to inject her hot-button topics with hair-raising hilarity. For her latest standup show, Mother, Margaret puts sacred cows upon a fiery spit in a ruthless examination of maternity in modern culture, politics, and celebrities.
