Today's Dapper Dans have been singing together since December of 1997 at Disneyland Park on Main Street, U.S.A. The Dapper Dans today seek to build upon the great tradition of Dapper Dan quartets of the past, while making their own mark for the future. They have taken on the roles of men that live and work on Main Street, U.S.A. who come together to form the Dapper Dans barbershop quartet: the town barber, the grocery store owner, the Constable and the banker. Since 1996 their traditional vaudevillian colorful striped costumes are only worn for certain special events.
The Dapper Dans perform year-round, Monday through Friday. For specifics

In addition to performing their standard repertoire, the Dapper Dans also conceive, write and develop a variety of sketches performed on Main Street, U.S.A. These sketches incorporate their roles as townsfolk.
