Dan Zanes is a very cute man with a smile that says, "Come dance with us." His band members are also especially adorable and look like they buy all their clothes at a thrift store in Wonkaville. If that doesn't make you want to hokey your pokey like a goofy caterpillar, nothing will. Dan doesn't come to town enough, though I know a 7-year-old who has grown up on his patchwork-multi-culti-Amerirocko. This kid can sing all the words to "Rock Island Line" and has banged his head — literally, there was blood — to "All Around the Kitchen." Zanes' shows are so much fun -- you'll want to figure out how to stunt your kids' growth so you can go every year! Wait -- did I just type that?
