UCLA Live Presents:
Get ready to sing and dance with wild abandon when the all-ages folk hero Dan Zanes returns to UCLA Live in a very special concert celebrating the sounds and colors of Los Angeles. A 2007 Grammy Award winner for “Best Musical Album for Children,” Zanes, his Brooklyn-based band, and his eclectic special guests create a rollicking “Woodstock for Kids,” where sea shanties, American traditional songs, West Indian folk music, and fiddle tunes collide with soulful originals in a spirit of rock and roll. Traversing the myriad cultures of this diverse and vibrant city – from East L.A. and Malibu to Koreatown and South Central— the concert will celebrate the “indigenous” music of L.A. in its many forms and variations, from hip-hop to classic Disney tunes. The audience is invited to “sing along with gusto” before things heat up and ultimately dissolve into a rollicking dance party.
