Dick Van Dyke is a true gift. His talents, both musically and acting, are some of the best of our generation. From Mary Poppins to The Dick Van Dyke Show to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Van Dyke has inspired so many people.
Even though he’s turning 91 this year, it doesn’t look like Van Dyke has any intentions of stopping. He currently performs with his barbershop quarter, The Vantastix, who have an album out called “Put on a Happy Face.’ Dick himself has a new book out right now called “Keep Moving” which we’re sure is filled with wonderful stories about this wonderful man.
Recently, Van Dyke was spotted at a Denny’s in California with his quartet. It’s unclear whether it was their decision or a request, but the group performs the iconic song, “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” which Dick Van Dyke originally performed. It was such a throwback to our youth! And he still sounds as amazing as ever. You go, Dick Van Dyke!
