Disney fans rejoice! Have you ever sat and enjoyed the tight melodies of the Dapper Dans in the Disney Parks? Perhaps you’ve even had a dream of becoming a Dapper Dan yourself. Today on the show, I’m chatting all about the Dapper Dans with a current Disneyland Dapper Dan, Jake Novak. The Dapper Dans have been a long tradition for Disneyland beginning performances just a few years after the park opened, and Magic Kingdom has had their Dapper Dans since its very beginning. But barbershop singing began way before The Dapper Dans existed. Listen as we discuss a bit about the history of barbershop quartets, and the history of the Dapper Dans in the Disney Parks. Plus, Jake shares personal stories about performing in the parks, what the audition process was like, and so much more.
