Dan the Monkey Man

Here’s how Dan the Monkey Man’s set works. Microphones and noisemakers — some of which are instruments — are arranged on stage. Then the Monkey Man plays kid-friendly tunes — from his theme song to the White Stripes’ “We’re Going to be Friends” — and the kids join in. Dan Munthe wears a tail and dyed long johns, and says the primary job is to concentrate in the chaos. “It’s so funny because some parents will be like, ‘No, no, no, that’s not the words,’” says Munthe. “And I’m trying to give them a signal like, ‘Just let it go. This is what it is.’”
