The Lindy Hoppers Review:
Cherry Poppin' Daddies

Over All Score:
Reviewed At: KROQ Weenie Roast
Albums: Yes, but don't buy 'em.
Yes, Reuben you saw the same band I did. These guys really do suck!!! Just another trendy lame band trying to make a buck: "So I've got a great idea! How about we play swing? It seems to be the next big thing, we'll get some of those really cool zoot suits all the trendy little kids are wearing." (aaaahh, let's see, does anybody still wear zoot suits outside of Frisco?) Um....sorry guys, your late and you really can't play Jazz. Go back to Ska or what ever the hell you where doing. O-yea, your video is the stupidest crap I've ever seen, and you guys really suck shit, and the more I think about it, the more you suck! Did I say you suck? You get a big fat F from Los Angeles! Yours truly...

This band bugs me. Mainly because they get more air play then a much better band, Big Bad Voodoo Daddies. And boy do they sound bad when they get out of the studio.

Their live performance at this year's KROQ Weenie Roast showed that this band is not a true swing band. They can only swing under the life support of a nice air conditioned studio, where sound levels and tones can be electronically controlled. This, unlike Big Bad Voodoo Daddies, who still continue to were their nice suits under the hot sun, and who continue to be a tremendous live band.

I guess the only good thing Cherry Poppin' Daddies did with their performance is sing "Zoot Suit Riot" in a more technically accurate language considering the theme of the song, Spanish. My advise to the band though: don't venture out of that studio any more, you can't play live!
