Cherry Poppin' Daddies To Play Brewing Station [Concert Preview]
Best known for the 1999 hit “Zoot Suit Riot”, national recording artists the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies will bring their unique sounds to the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills this month.
Masters of both extraordinary elegance and bird-flipping fury, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies are indeed the real deal.
Ever impossible to pigeonhole, White Teeth, Black Thoughts sees the Eugene, Oregon-based big band pushing themselves to the outer limits of inspiration and invention, resulting in two-count ‘em-two distinctive collections. The primary album marks CPD’s first jazz and swing-powered outing in more than a decade, while the exhilarating bonus disc is built upon a twisted frame of guitar-slinging rock ‘n’ roll.
As brave and articulate as it is boisterous and celebratory, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies’ White Teeth, Black Thoughts is the souped-up, swinging sound of America’s dance band playing as the ship goes down.
Despite scoring a two-time RIAA platinum certified smash with 1999’s cutting “Zoot Suit Riot,” the Daddies never made another swing record, choosing instead to try their hand at Motown soul, R&B, psychedelia, funk, and country, not to mention Latin, Caribbean, and other world musics.
The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies will be live in concert at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills on Saturday, October 19, starting at 10:30pm.
