Cherry Poppin Daddies

Event Date: 
Sunday, January 13, 2013 - 7:00pm

If the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies can’t get you dancing, then you better check your pulse. This eight-piece, multi-platinum band is not to be missed live. They are the darlings of swing, rockabilly, ska and big band fans alike.

After experimenting with narrative storytelling through shifting genres on "Susquehanna" in 2007 (Latin Pop, Swing, Ska, Glitter Rock), the band felt the need to put out something straight forward and fun. Their most recent record, "Skaboy JFK", was released in September 2009 and reconnected with a Ska audience that is largely aware of the band as merely a swing band.

A new CPD album is set for release in January 2013, possibly by this show, and it would feature several guest musicians including Grammy Award-winning accordionist Buckwheat Zydeco and former Captain Beefheart guitarist Zoot Horn Rollo.
