About Cherry Poppin' Daddies
Since they starting performing in the Pacific Northwest during Nirvana's early '90s heyday, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies can't be accused of jumping on the Retro-Swing bandwagon. Like most of their peers, the Daddies mix Jump Blues, Rockabilly, and a dash of Ska with a big beat sound that complements the modern dance floor. Like the Stray Cats in the '80s, CPD create a new sound based on vintage ideas. Their compilation album Zoot Suit Riot stormed up the charts in 1998.
