Watch: Oingo Boingo’s Danny Elfman, Steve Bartek reunite to perform ‘Dead Man’s Party’

Back in 2013, former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman sang in concert for the first time since that band’s demise in 1995, taking the mic during an orchestral performance of some of the beloved film scores he’s composed for director Tim Burton’s work.

Elfman has continued to reprise the “Danny Elfman’s Music From the Films of Tim Burton” annually around Halloween, and in recent years, brought Oingo Boingo guitarist — and continued Elfman collaborator — Steve Bartek onstage to perform that band’s signature tune, “Dead Man’s Party.”

That was the case once again this weekend in Los Angeles, when Elfman capped off a 25th anniversary celebration of Burton’s “A Nightmare Before Christmas” at the Hollywood Bowl by bringing Bartek onstage, along with No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal, to once again perform “Dead Man’s Party.”

Check out the full performance from Saturday night via uploader bulldogsid.
