    More Dapper Dan?

    Hey everybody! If you go to the Disneyland audition site, you'll notice that there's an audition for Dapper Dans coming up. Does this mean the current ones will be fired? Or are we going to have more than one Dapper Dan group?

    9/28Male Singers
    Seeking strong male singers to become part of The Dapper Dans, a turn-of-the-century barbershop quartet at the Disneyland® Resort. Role Descriptions:
    Lead: Strong, tuneful
    Tenor: High b flat or higher
    Baritone: Good parts singer
    Bass: True bass, low E flat or lower
    Date/Time:
    Thursday, September 28
    10:00 am (sign-in begins at 9:30 am)
    Location: Anaheim Ballet
    280 E. Lincoln Ave.
    Anaheim, CA 92805
    Requirements:
    • Traditional barbershop singing and movement experience is preferred but not necessary. Outgoing with a warm personality and good comic timing is a plus. Ability to learn two or more vocal roles is also a plus.

    I'd audition, but I can't sing a lick!

    And I look kinda goofy wearing those "bright" costumes.


    This has been a Filmways presentation dahling.

    The current guys aren't in any danger of losing their jobs. Disney often holds auditions for long-running shows to boost the number of subs available for any given role.

    Exactly what I was going to say. They probably just need more subs, especially with the busy holiday season ahead of them.

    Re: More Dapper Dan?

    I heard somewhere that they need to fill some positions because some of the Dapper Dans are getting work elsewhere (young-ins and all excercising their talent).

    looks like everone was wrong. They all got fired. some got jobs at the park, less fullfilling than being a dapper dan, others were not so fortunate and had to find a job they could get by relying on a resume of 20 years of barbershop singing.

    Re: More Dapper Dan?

    Shelby's dans had to get the new jobs. Jim has been severly reduced to only a sub for the new guys. Bill is a pirate singer in new orleans square and does theater on the side. I finally found bob and he has a carpet cleaning buisness. I emailed shelby and he said he is still doing differenet jobs and projects. Nothing really steady

    Re: More Dapper Dan?

    ^i think you're talking about the old Dapper Dans. Haven't heard anything about the current ones being all fired. They probably need some subs, and possibly some of the current ones are going on to other things-thus they need new Dapper Dans. not everyone sticks around forever. (except for the older dapper dans. =) )

    Re: More Dapper Dan?

    If you compare, there is a far greater variety of songs by the old dapper dans than there are of the new guys. For ever 1 video of the new guys on the internet, you will find at least 6 of the Old Dapper Dans. The new guys have have ample time to make a name for themselves and learn new songs but they havnt done so. Videos of the old guys have only been posted around the same time as videos of the new guys so the old guys dont have an advantage. They just have experience. Observe

    Videos of new guys:
    Some song where they throw hats:

    Now here are all the videos i can find of the old guys and each one is a different song( most of these are only from one day...their last day) There are still many songs not recorded on video and a lot i never got to hear . I cant take the time to list all of the names, im just going to put the URLs but they are all different songs exept for videos wiht a couple of songs. They even performed at the hollywood bowl!

    31)http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...&q=dapper+dans ( a 45 min video of their last day. you can see how much this audience loves the dans. The film makers traveld from Ohio or something just to see them on their last day and the audience of the "last" performance is huge. some songs are repeats)
    32)http://archive-c01m01.libsyn.com/pod...tricaldans.mp4 ( disney's electrical parade performed by dans)
    33)http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...&q=dapper+dans
    34)http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...3&q=dapper+dan ( they performed at the hollywood bowl!!!!)


    here is the only video of all of the old dans gone which was right after the aniversery. But they at least had subs.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8mmGUPM5Qo


    On all of the old dapper dans videos you can see huge crouds surrounding them when they are outside. They dont seem less popular to me. I just seems that the new guys are more promoted by mics and flag ceromonies and such.

    Re: More Dapper Dan?

    Hey! You posted video links over here as well. Some may call that spam, I call it awesome.

    I actually popped in over here to say that I saw some of the new-new guys performing the other day, and I thought they were pretty good!

    Re: More Dapper Dan?

    I think the new guys are great, they draw good sized crowds and put on a good show. Give them years to hone it like previous Dans had and they'll be that tight too. Personally I like seeing them here and there on Main Street through out the day.

    As far as Mics go aren't the new group singing in NOS (I actually saw them in DCA last week too) miced too. And the pirate singers as well. And Drawn to the Magic, you can't convince me that Jay from Drawn to the Magic lip syncs. His voice is clear and powerful enough to cut through the crowd but they mic him anyway. Using microphones doesn't mean anyone's lip syncing and if the Dan naysayers would simply watch a show you'd see/hear they ain't lip syncing anything.
    IMO - YMMV - FYIGM

    Not when I've seen them. They're on the bike, the trolley, over with the ragtime piano player, out on the parade route. All over the place, really.
