Dan Zanes was Amazing!


Posted by Amanda | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 21-10-2010

The Dan Zanes & Friends concert at the McCallum Theatre last night was amazing! Truly an all-ages show. My 3 year old daughter had a blast dancing the entire concert and even debuted some new air-guitar and air-violin skills.  We picked up a CD at the merch table on the way out. It was cleverly packaged in a boardbook CD case, both my daughter and I thought that was a super-cool idea. I might have to pick up some more of these, they’d make great gifts.

What a treat to have a quality family-friendly show at such a lovely facility as the McCallum. If Dan Zanes comes back to town we will definitely be there!
