    Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix to Perform at D23 Expo

    Did you know that Dick Van Dyke has his own vocal quartet? You'll be able to see them in person at this year's D23 Expo.

    Songs from Van Dyke’s entertainment career in addition to many well-known Disney
    hits and timeless pop standards will be performed by Van Dyke and The Vantastix in a show filled with
    humor, entertainment and sing-along favorites.

    The group will appear in concert on Stage 23 at the D23 Expo on Friday, August 19,
    2011, at 8:15 p.m.

    Sounds like fun to me!

    YES!!!!

    I bought their CD last summer and bought a ticket to DvD's local show that was supposed to play at the Geffen earlier this year until he injured himself and it got cancelled. So looking forward to this. Thanks for the post, Dustysage!

    The CD will be for sale at the Expo. I plan to pick up a copy. I love Dick Van Dyke. He's such a neat guy.

    We were lucky to see him in a special one night performance of the Mary Poppins musical last year in LA. It was a D23 event. He came out after the show to speak with the D23 members. It was just fantastic.

    I've always loved everything that Dick Van Dyke has done - an incredibly versityle performer. He's promoting some other great talents with this quartet of his.

    Here's some Vantastix tunes that I found on You Tube....

    Live renditions of several songs including Chim Chiminy, Suprecalifragilistic, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. ‪Dick van Dyke singing live with the Vantastix - July 2, 2009‬‏ - YouTube

    I wonder why Stage 23 and not the arena. The Trivia contest is in 23 until 7:30 and Van Dyke 45 minutes later in the same room.

    Will they clear the stage 23 after the trivia tourney or do I have to sit through the trivia to see the concert?

    I met someone who is editor for a book about Disneyland Hotel history last night, and when we told him that we wanted to go to the Expo because the Vantastix are going to sing, he gasped and said, "Where did you hear that?!?!? It was supposed to be a secret!!!" So... how'd ya find out?

    That's great. I've always loved Dick Van Dyke. I was lucky to be able to get a chance to meet him last year at my work.

    My guess is that they were worried they couldn't fill a 4,000-seat arena and thought it would make him feel bad. Instead, they're going to disappoint an awful lot of fans who can't fit into the 750-seat Stage 23....
