The Dan Band
Dan Finnerty caught America’s attention as the foul-mouthed wedding singer in the box-office smash Old School, performing his now-infamous rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart, as well as his appearance as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and again as the inappropriate wedding singer in the record breaking hit, The Hangover.

What started as a drunken joke for Finnerty singing I Am Woman at a karaoke bar has spiraled out of control into THE DAN BAND - a cult phenomenon that has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, The L.A. Times, Rolling Stone, Variety among others, and prompted Entertainment Weekly to dub it “The hottest ticket in Hollywood.”

THE DAN BAND plays to sold-out crowds from Los Angeles to New York and has appeared on numerous shows including The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ellen, The Late Late Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Last Comic Standing, The Guys Choice Awards and caught the attention of Steven Spielberg, who signed on to executive produce Dan's one hour concert special “The Dan Band: I Am Woman,” directed by McG.

THE DAN BAND has released two albums, “THE DAN BAND LIVE” followed by “HO – A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS” and is releasing a third album on July 10th called “The Wedding Album.”

THE DAN BAND tours all over the country, from comedy clubs and theatres to corporate events and the occasional wedding.

Three brothers from other mothers (and fathers) got together, from the OC, LA and DC, to create a miscellaneous collection of musical works aka OLIO. Inspired by everything from Black Sabbath to Barry White these guys stir up an eclectic blend of rock/pop/funk music and serve it up hot! Whether it's songs about break-ups, make-outs, shake-ups or four letter words, Olio produces electrifying, positive music from their studio in Los Angeles, CA. On stage Arif Hodzic sings and breaks strings (sometimes his right hand gets heavy), DeHaven Carrington grooves on drums and croons (when the lights are low and the mood is right), and newest member Kelley Hill is a fireball of energy, bouncing on one leg and just tearing the bass up (you may even see metal shavings come off the neck).

Olio hits the road in the USA this summer for their 2013 "Comeback Kings Tour." Playing Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and cities in between in June and Phoenix, Austin, Shreveport, Little Rock, NYC, DC, Kill Devil Hills and Atlanta in July and August.

On December 18, 2012 Olio released the Comeback Kings EP produced by legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer (Hendrix, Zeppelin, Beatles, Stones, Santana, Woodstock, Kiss, Frampton, Robert Randolph, Grace Potter). A full album of songs, recorded in L.A. and France, are set for a 2013 release.

In 2011, Olio won the Emerging Artist Competition held by Rusty's on the Santa Monica Pier. They were the only band to play the Twilight Dance Series twice in one summer, opening for Dawes with Jackson Browne in front of a crowd of several thousand music lovers.

They celebrated the release of their 2010 single "Get It Good" following the success of the 2009 11 song album "Living The Dream." The songs are dynamic ranging from the nylon stringed sweetness of "Completely Beautiful" about the profound impact of becoming a parent (received an Honorable Mention Award in the 2008 West Coast Songwriters International Competition) to a hard rock/rap collab that already has 20,000 NJ Devils fans shouting "Here We Go" at the Prudential Center. Their homage to the mamacita de futbol aka "Soccer Mom" inspired one impassioned UK critic to call them "sexist and subtle as a sledghammer." (Olio still thinks Benny Hill, John Cleese and Ricky Gervais are funny) The sound created is rich and packs a punch reminiscent of the John Mayer Trio while thematically aiming for Stevie Wonder's "Songs in the Key of Life."

To experience Olio only on recording is like Vader without the Darth. Whether it's 30 minutes or 3 hours, the energy generated by these three could power a small town (or even the lesser known planet Zeta-Reticulan5). So, maybe the question isn't Who or What is Olio but rather When and Where?
