Dan Zanes performs
He's no Barney. Nor is he your typical kids' musician. He's Dan Zanes, former lead singer of the '80s rock band the Del Fuegos. And he's fast becoming one of the big names in kids' entertainment. Zanes and his band, the Rocket Ship Revue, are bringing their musical show to the Charles Theatre Saturday. With American folk songs, original tunes, dance classics and sing-along rhymes, Zanes' show offers a little of everything for everybody in the family. Audience participation is encouraged. The show benefits the Midtown Academy and Bolton Hill Nursery and Daycare.
Dan Zanes and the Rocket Ship Revue perform at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Charles Theatre, 1711 N. Charles St. $15; $5 kids. Call 410-523-9774.
