Looking to cap off the inaugural Lightsaber journey in entertaining fashion, the COURSE OF THE FORCE will treat fans to a performance by THE DAN BAND on stage at the historic Balboa Theatre.
THE DAN BAND will perform live at 12:30pm, after the five-day COURSE OF THE FORCE Lightsaber Relay concludes in San Diego, benefitting Make-A-Wish®.
THE DAN BAND, fronted by Dan Finnerty, plays to sold-out crowds from Los Angeles to New York and has appeared on numerous shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ellen and Last Call with Carson Daly. Finnerty garnered the attention of Steven Spielberg, who served as the executive producer of the band's concert special The Dan Band: I Am Woman. Finnerty's scene-stealing movie appearances include Old School, the bat-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and the wedding singer in The Hangover.
Fans have the opportunity to participate in the historic lightsaber relay by registering online now at CourseoftheForce.com. One hundred percent of runner proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish chapters of San Diego, Greater Los Angeles, and Orange County and the Inland Empire.
The Course of the Force is similar to an Olympic torch style relay, except participants come dressed in their favorite Star Wars™ or popular culture-themed costumes and hand off a custom lightsaber at quarter-mile markers to the next runner. On July 7, Course of the Force will kick off with an event at the Santa Monica Pier at 10:00 a.m. The relay will start later in the day and end that night at the Redondo Beach Pier. Other planned stops include Huntington Beach Pier, Oceanside and Crystal Pier at Pacific Beach.
