Cherry Poppin’ Daddies

Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Cherry Poppin’ Daddies became a popular act during the swing revival of the late 1990s although the eight-piece band had formed one decade prior in Eugene, Oregon. The current lineup includes original members Steve Perry (who once performed under the mad scientist stage persona of “MC Large Drink”) on lead vocals, bassist Dan Schmid and trumpeter Dana Heitman. The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies broke into the musical mainstream with their 1997 swing compilation Zoot Suit Riot: The Swingin’ Hits of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies. Released at the onset of the late 1990s swing revival, the album went on to sell over two million copies in the United States while its eponymous single became a radio hit. The Daddies have been playing songs on tour from their newest release called The Boop-A-Doo. Cherry Poppin’ Daddies has always prided itself on its craft and musicianship that have allowed them to excel in whatever format they choose to tackle.

Spin Doctors
The Spin Doctors started out as four 20-something-year-old guys in New York. Band members include Chris Barron (vocals). Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White (bass).   In 1992 they released Pocket Full of Kyptonite that produced the two monster hits, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes.” The Spin Doctors became an overnight sensation, selling millions of albums around the world. Their second album, 1994’s Turn It Upside Down, featured the single, “You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast.” The band released another album before disbanding in 1999. The band reunited for a series of shows in 2001 and 2002, and they used that momentum to head back into the studio, where they recorded Nice Talking to Me which was released in 2005. Over the next few years, the Spin Doctors toured semi-regularly, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pocket Full of Kryptonite in 2011 with a deluxe edition and a supporting tour. The Spin Doctors regrouped in 2013 for their first album in eight years, the all-blues If the River Was Whiskey.

Downtown hotel-casinos also offer fabulous values on room rates, gambling, plus many food and drink specials.”

KC and The Sunshine Band
KC and The Sunshine Band are still as widely popular today as they were when they first danced into the music scene 40 years ago. Harry Wayne Casey – KC for short – developed a unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of a Latin percussion groove, giving us an impressive string of hits like “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It)” and “Shake Your Booty.” With sales of over 100 million records, nine Grammy nominations, three Grammy Awards and an American Music Award, KC and The Sunshine Band was one of the most progressive bands of the ’70s and is credited with changing the sound of modern pop music.

Tonic & Vertical Horizon
Multiple Grammy-nominated Tonic’s hit, “If You Could Only See,” was a highlight of the group’s platinum-selling album, Lemon Parade. Alt rock favorites Vertical Horizon has had a slew of hits including “You’re a God,” “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning)” and “Everything You Want.”

Martha Davis and The Motels, The Tubes & The Smithereens
You’d be hard-pressed to find any compilation of ’80s hits that doesn’t include songs by these popular groups. Some favorites include “Only the Lonely” from Martha Davis and The Motels, “Talk to Ya Later” from The Tubes, featuring Fee Waybill, and “A Girl Like You” from The Smithereens.

Smash Mouth & Toad the Wet Sprocket
American rock band Smash Mouth is perhaps best known for their hits, “Walkin’ in the Sun” and “All Star,” featured in numerous movie soundtracks. Alt Rock’s Toad the Wet Sprocket have a string of chart-topping hits including, “Walk on the Ocean,” “Something’s Always Wrong” and “All I Want.”

Theory of a Deadman
Canadian rockers Theory of a Deadman formed in 2001 and have had seven Top 10 hits. Their biggest radio success came from 2008’s Scars & Souvenirs. Their hits include “So Happy,” “Bad Girlfriend” and “Not Meant to Be.”

Spin Doctors and Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Spin Doctors are best known for two hits with irresistible melodies, “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.” Cherry Poppin’ Daddies rose to the forefront of the neo-swing movement with their two million-selling “Zoot Suit Riot.”

Kansas & Blue Oyster Cult
Kansas has scored eight gold albums, three sextuple-platinum albums and a platinum live album as well hits like “Carry On Wayward Son” and the timeless “Dust in the Wind.” Blue Oyster Cult has sold more than 24 million albums worldwide since their debut in 1972. Some of their most memorable songs include “Godzilla,” “Burnin’ for You” and “Don’t Fear the Reaper.”
