I'm a Dan Zanes Groupie

Or at least I feel like it. Our family attended the Dan Zanes and Friends concert in Portland last weekend and had so much fun. My son Alex even got to meet the band and have them sign his concert T-shirt. Rock on!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Dan Zanes and Friends, here's the scoop. Although their music has got a definite kid focus, it really appeals to people of all ages. The music is a variety of folk (both American and World music), combined with some original songs and a touch of Rock and Roll. It's music that kids love and parents will actually enjoy as well. They even won the Grammy for Best Children's Album last year. Alex is an even bigger fan than we are and has most of the Dan Zanes' albums including "Catch that Train", "House Party", and the mellower "Night Time". The band is set to launch their newest album "Nueva York" this month. We can't wait! Check them out on their website at the Dan Zanes and Friends Homepage where you can read all about them, listen to music, and order their albums, if you're interested.
