Members fo Cherry Poppin' Daddies standing on steps with instruments

Cherry Poppin’ Daddies (“Zoot Suit Riot”) performs mid-20th century inspired music. Songs include swing to 1920’s hot jazz and the Great American Songbook. The band re-imagines what a Christmas Radio broadcast, circa 1944, would sound like to the greatest generation soldiers at a USO show in the South Pacific.

The big band holiday music of Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey is served up by the Daddies. They also play their own double platinum selling original material. Dressed like grunts on shore leave, the band brings to you a unique, warm weather, Tiki Christmas spectacular that will leave you dancing through the holidays. This is a show that will delight hipsters and seniors alike. Don’t miss it!


In the past few years, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies have become the kind of band that you would want to book if you were throwing a soiree at the Gatsby mansion. They write lush, pitch perfect arrangements out of the great American songbook, from Cole Porter to Frank Sinatra.

On top of being an unparalleled show band, the Daddies have an “oh by the way” double platinum ability to pen original material that is influenced by a history of American popular music. It is also wholly modern lyrically, and itself stands up as classic. The 1997 release of “Zoot Suit Riot” set the bar for the neo-swing movement of the era in terms of originality, lyrical depth, and musical sales.
