Dan Zanes’ music career started with his role in the popular band Del Fuego. Named “Best New Band” in 1984 by Rolling Stones, Del Fuego exposed Dan Zanes to many musicians and different audiences. Following his career with Del Fuego, Dan Zanes moved to New York, where Dan Zanes and Friends was born.
Dan Zanes’ signature sound of fresh and fun music is derived from his wish for families to be brought together by the same songs. After Dan Zanes moved to New York, he began the band “The Wonderland String Band,” which was composed of local fathers he had met in nearby playgrounds.
The shared love of music between Dan Zanes and his friends prompted the release of their first tape of songs, which was a hit with the locals. Dan Zanes’ music could be enjoyed by everyone instead of just parents or just kids. Due to the success of their small debut, The Wonderland String Band welcomed women musicians into the band and renamed it Rocket Ship Revue.
Now known widely as Dan Zanes and Friends, the Rocket Ship Revue has taken off from its humble beginnings and is redefining music. With best-selling albums that feature guests such as Suzanne Vega and Sheryl Crow, Dan Zanes and Friends is this season’s must-see band for the whole family.
