From “Ferociously Stoned” to Sinatra, CPD in fine form

I’m a CPD lifer. Fortunate to have started at U of O in 1987 and saw the Daddies many times at small clubs, parties, WOW Hall, Good Times, opened for Fishbone at the EMU Ballroom, Chilkoot Charlie’s in Anchorage etc. When they started to get into swing much later on, I was “meh” at first but it grew on me. Now, with this collection, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies have really reached an apogee of talent, tightness and respect for their elders. Steve Perry is in truly fine form—he’s an amazing vocalist, and he interprets these classic tracks amazingly well. The opening number, “The Best Is Yet To Come” has an almost ominous beat and sound to it, they slides funkily not the groove thanks to Perry’s vocal track. Well known numbers follow—Fly Me To The Moon, Lady Is A Tramp, etc, . The Daddies are TIGHT on this record. The arrangements are very good—VERY good, and the band members are clearly into it. They’re loving this gig. We get Dana Heitman’s ever-amazing trumpet, bassist Dan Schmid provides a schmoovah-than-Telly Savalas’ head baseline at all times, and somewhere the RatPack is smiling. Speaking of, I’m confident the Chairman of the Board would have been down with MC Large Drink as a name. Great work CPD, for a fantastic record of standards. Lovin’ it!

What Steve Perry has been working up to

As a rocker AND one of the founders of the ‘Neo-Swing’ movement, This is the album Steve Perry has been working up to. Always a good vocalist, here he’s polished to perfection, covering Frankie, Dean and the rest of the Pack. The Band was at top form: it sounds like they rehearsed for a year before recording this!
For those looking for hard rock, this ain’t for you, but if your music tastes extend into the Swing, Jazz and Big Band sounds, snap it up!


Formed: 1989 in Eugene, OR

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Although Cherry Poppin' Daddies became a popular act during the swing revival of the late 1990s, the eight-piece band formed one decade prior in Eugene, Oregon. Vocalist Steve Perry (aka MC Large Drink, a nickname intended to distance Perry from the famous Journey frontman) and bassist Dan Schmid initially crossed paths at the University of Oregon, and a shared interest in punk music convinced the students to leave school and pursue a band. After playing together in the Jazz Greats and St. Huck,...
