Grammy-winning Dan Zanes & Friends are making a stop through Asheville on their latest tour! The family-friendly show will take place on Saturday August 14th at The Orange Peel.
Dan Zanes, former member of the popular '80s band, The Del Fuegos, has been crafting all-ages music for the last ten years and has released ten albums in that span. He and his band have most notably been featured in the LA Times, New York Times, Washington Post, and even Esquire for their "wry, rootsy, real American folk music - songs that twist a little plagnecy into the sweetness of a melody, songs that feel like life." (via Rolling Stones Magazine).
The Hop is privileged to announce that, to help promote the event, we will be raffling off a Family 4 pack of tickets to the show (a $64 value) as well as Dan Zanes & Friends CDs and DVDs! The raffle will take place on Tuesday night, August 10th, from 6:30-7:30 during our scheduled storytelling event featuring Asheville's own David Novak.
On the night, David Novak, nationally-renowned in his own right, will be telling his tale of "The Cookie Girl" as well as more of his most popular stories. For a taste of his talent, check out this video from a previous performance at The Hop. As always our event is FREE to all, Kids Eat Free at both Urban Burrito and Artisan Catering and Deli, and bring a can if you can for our MANNA Food Bank barrels!
What a great opportunity for Asheville families to experience kid-friendly music at its finest. The show kicks off at 2pm (doors 1pm) and tickets are $18 or $64 for a family 4-pack (more info on The Orange Peel's website).
Thanks as always for the wonderful support.
