Dan Zanes in 2008
Blurry photo taken with Bede's phone as we didn't want to carry around the old clunker
Dan Zanes and Friends opened with Water for the Elephants:
"Circus came to town and to the circus I went
Didn't have a ticket didn't have a cent,
Circus man said, "To see the show without a cent,
You gotta carry water for the elephants."
Of DZAF, Colin Brooks, the drummer, was the only original member on stage. Barbara Brousel has a young daughter she probably didn't want to leave behind in Brooklyn, and Father Goose was not on the scene. The new musicians are lovely, though. You can find their bios here. The special guests this time were local South African and drummer and singer Siya Manyakanyaka-Kelley (who performed last year as well) and tap-dancer Derick Grant.
Dan Zanes is returning to Seattle in early December to preview a holiday show that will officially debut on Broadway. We're going!
