In the opening moments of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," a piano mournfully accompanies heartbroken lyrics such as "every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears." It is an emotional resonance completely at odds with the image of Dan Finnerty––the smirking, wide-eyed frontman of The Dan Band, an all-male rock group that enthusiastically rips into covers of songs traditionally sung by women.

Finnerty vaulted into national prominence with the 2003 film Old School, when he inappropriately serenaded Will Ferrell's "Frank the Tank" and his bride at their wedding with an expletive-laden version of "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." When asked to define his music's appeal, Dan soberly told an interviewer, "I think people like hearing me sing about a man who did me wrong."

Hosting the evening's tunes, the historic Gramercy Theatre first opened its doors in 1937 and spent some 60 years as a movie theater and art house. Now wedged between two skyscrapers, it still retains some art deco columns and flourishes striped into its façade. Inside, an intimate main room shares space with the eclectic Samsara Lounge where persian rugs and funky wall art imbue audiences with a rock 'n' roll spirit and inspire the spontaneous formation of nomadic tribes.
