THEY’RE BACK!! The band we used to call the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies was scheduled to appear a year ago, but covid-related complications caused cancellation. We are ecstatic to welcome them back to the Spanish Ballroom.
Ever since they first formed more than 25 years ago, the THE DADDIES made it their mission to veer from genre to genre across the musical map, choosing to follow their own muse regardless of feedback from fans and critics alike. Truth be told, individuality and defiance have always been part of the band’s DNA, and have, in turn, reinforced their rebellious reputation. Granted, though that image is well deserved, the ability to bend the boundaries has been simultaneously tempered and informed by an adherence to an older, now vanished tradition, grounded in Tin Pan Alley, swing music and the great American songbook. You’ll find this one of the most danceable bands you’ve ever danced to!
