Okay from the website I see that The Dan Band doesn't do weddings. And I'm sure you still get requests like mine every second of every day.  But what I'm wondering is, if I don't have any grandma's would they still not do it? Because it has been a dream of mine to have them at my wedding. Yes I am female. And honestly they would probably fit right in with both families involved. 
I would probably die even to get a response to this. And I will start a mini crusade to have the Band at my wedding. 
Oh and I have no date set. So this can be life long. 
I have no grandmas and my grandpa is too def and cusses like a sailor anyway. 
My family is not offended easily and would be so happy that I'm getting married to not even care who was there. Hell if Dan was ordained they wouldn't mind him officiating the damn thing.

And here already is the response. I'm emailing this to my mom so she knows her options. 

Hello there,
Yes the Dan Band are available for weddings and it can be done one of three ways.
They can perform live as an entire 7 piece band, they can perform live as a 3 piece band and perform to a backing track
or Dan can make a personalized video of one song, either Total Eclipse of the Heart from the movie Old School or Candy
Shop from the movie The Hangover.
7 piece band is approximately $15,000-$25,000 plus air fare, hotels, ground trans, etc.
3 piece band is approximately $10,000-$15,000 plus air fare, hotels, ground trans, etc.
The personalized video is around $1,500.00
Keep in mind, if they perform as a band, we also have 2 to 3 crew members on top of the band, so we are talking about
9-10 people for the full band and 4-5 people for the backing track show.
Please let me know if you have any further questions?
Thank you,


  1. Perhaps you could sell tickets to the wedding, like a concert- to raise money?

  2. HOLY sHIT!! we should have started the wedding fund 10 years ago!!
    start playing the lottery, selling your body/soul and you should have the money say .... oh 2 years from now!

  3. I tried to play the lottery tonight and failed. Poo. And Lame.

  4. Where can we send our "love offerings"?

  5. The lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math
