Dan Zanes

Holiday House Party
Dan Zanes
Tuesday, December 2, 2008 - 7:00pm
Take a seat in the theatrical living room of Grammy winners Dan Zanes and Friends, America’s premier family music band, for a 21st century all-ages holiday celebration. If you feel that the festivities of the season are incomplete without disco Hanukkah rave-ups, raucous Arabic worship songs, a Korean new years anthem, high octane Mexican fiddling, tap dancing, shadow puppetry, food, snow, laughter, and the occasional Christmas carol, than this is your party. Everyone was invited and now that includes you. The New York Times says “concerts by Dan Zanes are always a cause for celebration” and the Holiday House Party may just be the wildest concert of them all.

Musical artists joining Dan Zanes in the holiday house party include Palestinian Arabic -jazz bazuq player Tareq Abboushi, drummer Colin Brooks, English designer and director Julian Crouch with his inspired Crouch Family Band, Mexican guitarist and Vocalist Sonia de los Santos, accordionist / saxophonist John Foti, renowned tap dancer Derrick K. Grant with his tap dancing son and daughter Kaleo and Lulu Grant, bass player Saskia Sunshine Lane, fiddler / trumpeter Elena Moon Park, founder of the ground breaking neo-hasidic ensemble Pharoah’s Daughter, vocalist Basya Schecter, Palestinian percussionist/composer Zafer Tawil, and the latest sensations from Veracruz Mexico, the Villa-Lobos Brothers.
