The Cherry Poppin' Daddies

Thursday, November 13
7 p.m., Kenan Auditorium

Renowned for their infusion of swing and ska, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies first broke into the musical mainstream with their 1997 swing compilation, "Zoot Suit Riot." While the band's earlier releases were rooted mostly in funk and punk rock, their subsequent studio albums have incorporated elements from many diverse genres of popular music and Americana, including rock, rhythm and blues, soul and world music. Their performance features hits from the 1960s, a tribute to the music of the legendary Rat Pack.
