Dan Zanes occupies a unique place in American music where sea shanties, English music hall, North American and West Indian folk music, play party songs, the spirit of early rock-and-roll and soulful originals collide. With his band, Dan Zanes and Friends, he has toured the world sharing handmade 21st century social music with enthusiastic crowds of kids and kid sympathizers.
From thrift shop basements to Carnegie Hall, from Brooklyn to Bahrain and beyond, the Grammy award winner has been introducing new songs and reconnecting people to songs that have always been there, and still are—although people may have forgotten about them. Referred to as “the family-music genre’s most outspoken and eloquent advocate” by Time Magazine, his widely- acclaimed music has been featured on “Sesame Street,” Playhouse Disney, Nickelodeon, HBO Family and Sprout.
Dan Zanes and Friends return to The Wallis after wildly popular engagements the previous two seasons. Once again, the Grammy Award-winner will bring his friend Sonia de los Santos for a bi-lingual English and Spanish concert for kids and kids-at-heart. Find out more online.
