Friday, April 27, 2018: Cherry Poppin’ Daddies (American Swing)
For 25 years the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies have roamed the musical map, following their muse but returning
always to older traditions grounded in Tin Pan Alley, swing music, and the Great American Songbook. Their
recent release, Please Return the Evening: The Daddies Salute the Music of the Rat Pack, celebrates the
unique musical personalities of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr., who helped patent the
concept of cool at the dawn of the 1960s. The Daddies’ latest CD, Boop-A-Doo, harkens back to an earlier
time. The album covers songs that might have had their birth at the Cotton Club during the Prohibition era,
such as “Let’s Misbehave,” “42nd Street,” and “Top Hat”—tunes designed to set dance floors ablaze!
