Event Description

Happy Fathers Day Everyone!

For this special day, the band Orleans (you may heard a few of their songs over the years: Dance With Me, Still Havin' Fun and Dancing in the Moonlight), has an ORIGINAL Fathers Day song to share with you.

Here is a message from the lead singer of Orleans Larry Hoppen, sharing why this song is so special "For Fathers - Everywhere": (Larry was up on Manny's wall with his band Boffalongo)

From Larry Hoppen:

"Some songs come easily, some don't - I try to 'write what I know' in any case. This tune started soon after I became a father, a rough-draft lyric / amorphous song structure, thrown onto 'the pile' in my computer.

For me, the good ones stand up if you let 'em sit a while. My twin girls are now 13 - and the song still works for me - so I set the goal of finishing / recording 'For Fathers Everywhere' for Fathers Day. It's a demo, really, done quickly with a few local (Orlando, FL) friends. I'm very pleased that the Orleans Team (many Fathers amongst us ;-) is sharing this tune with our fans.

No matter what language spoken, what color skin or where in the world a Dad is, all of us share a perspective at the very core of Fatherhood. I hope you enjoy this song about that perspective !"

Larry Hoppen
for the entire Orleans Crew

Everyone said go to Manny's so my dad took me there when I was 12. Shocked me by buying me a set of 1965 Ludwigs for my upcoming Bar Mitzvah. I was never religious, but am still drumming! Danny Burgauer took care of me in the old store, at 120 W…
