Entertainment Services and Packages:
Dana has three new shows:
'Dana Does Frank, Tony, Dean, Mel & Bobby'...yes, the iconic songs from these well-loved entertainers and crooners from yesteryear; Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett (the only one still alive and performing!), Dean Martin, Mel Torme and Bobby Darin.
'Exotica Jazz in Shangri La' ...the music of Martin Denny & Arthur Lyman...think sensual, exotic, tropical jazzy sounds incorporating vibraphones, congas, piano, acoustic bass, beautiful, soothing vocals and bird calls!
'TROPICABANA! A Musical Romp through the Tropics with Dana Land & The Cabana Boys!' was debuted at Hawaii Public Radio's Atherton Theatre on Jan. 25th, 2014 to a sold out crowd and moves on to the beautiful Doris Duke Theatre at the Honolulu Museum of Art on Friday, May 23rd, 2014. This fun, upbeat musical trip through the tropics culls rhythms & popular tunes from locales including Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica and Hawaii. This is a great show for concerts, dinner shows, corporate events and weddings where dancing or featured entertainment is a must! Dana also loves to perform with her pop jazz ensemble from two to six pieces; think the music of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble & Diana Krall.

It is the aim of our professional and well-organized team to create a wonderful and memorable musical experience. We’ll bring charm, romance, elegance and a swingin’ good time as we play the well-loved songs from the Great American Songbook, Brazilian bossas and sambas, blues and contemporary tunes.

Your outstanding performance and the charm with which it was given will be long remembered. As you may recall, our goal for the series was to hold a community-building event and you helped us accomplish that, with a show that appealed to young and old alike. You far exceeded our expectation! You are very talented and delightful to work with and we hope you will participate again next year!” - Nancy Vernon - Marin Art & Garden Center Board of Trustees
