"I know what you’re thinking: 'Did he fire six shots, or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?'
Well do ya, punk?"

This was a fun concert
The Dan Band is a comedy band from Los Angeles, California, created by actor/comedian Dan Finnerty.
The band is well known for it's covers of originally female-performed pop songs. Their live show has become a staple of Los Angeles nightlife, with Entertainment Weekly naming it "the hottest ticket in town".
Dan has made notable appearances in the movies Old School (singing Total Eclipse of the Heart and Lady), The Terminal, Starsky & Hutch, where he performed Roberta Flack's "Feel Like Makin' Love" at a Bat Mitzvah, and most recently, The Hangover (performing "Candy Shop" and"Fame") in a wedding scene reminiscent of his appearance in Old School. In 2005, they released The Dan Band Live, their live full-length debut album. They gained attention due to their version of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," as well as their cover versions of "Lady" by Styx, "Milkshake" by Kelix, Toni Basil's "Mickey," and many others.
