DAN BAND, THE: Live!: CD

When you find yourself holding a CD that features a guy in Jiffy Lube overalls singing covers of songs originally sung by women, it’s a safe assumption you are probably holding a CD by a “joke” band. Such is the case here. Dan and crew run through the formerly female-led hits of the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and ‘00s, including “I Am Woman,” “Genie in a Bottle” and “Flashdance/Fame,” sticking close to the original sound of the tunes and not changing the lyrics. He’s in fine voice, I gotta say, but ultimately this, unlike Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, was gut-busting hilarious for a grand total of one listen. After that, you’re just pushing the envelope.
