The Year of "Limited Time Magic" Preview: Dapper Dans, the original "Boy Band"

HERE is a video preview of one of the "Limited Time Magic" events that will be popping up at the parks in 2013.

The MK's barbershop quartet, "Dapper Dans" sing a medley of contemporary Boy Band hits.

Whether that is "Magic" or not is in purely the eye (and ear) of the beholder.

~LOL. No autotune, just beautiful harmonious singing in a cappella is definitely "magic." Thanks for sharing!

Nothing like hearing Boy Band songs sung by The Dapper Dans . I loved it, thanks for sharing.

As someone who grew up during the 'original' coming of the boy bands as we know them today (backstreet boys, new kids in the block, etc.), hearing the dapper dans cover that kind of music is about as cool as it gets. It was far and away the "limited time magic" that I would have liked to see the most. Thanks for posting this video!

Loved it. Little worried there for a minute, since I am not a fan of Straight No Chaser's "Teen Sensation Medley," but I thought the Dapper Dan's choices and presentation worked great.

Hate it. I don't even like the idea of the Dapper Dans singing boy band songs. I will try to avoid seeing it in person.

I feel old saying it...but I am deeply saddened by the fact that people no longer appreciate a barbershop quartet...especially the Dapper Dans.

What the hell is wrong with "Lida Rose" and the people who don't appreciate it?

I can appreciate a barbershop quartet, especially the Dapper Dans! I think them singing boyband songs just shows them that they're very versatile with thier singing. I would think it was a challenge to "barber quartet"-up the songs they're doing.

As for Lida Rose, it is a classic that I can respect. For all we know, it could have been the "boyband" interpretation of it's time.
