Cherry Poppin' Daddies

The Cherry Poppin' Daddies are an American band formed in Eugene, Oregon, in 1989. Since 1990, they have released seven albums, with an eighth due out in mid-2012. The Daddies' music is primarily a mix of swing, ska and rock, characterized by a prominent horn section and sardonic, often morbid, lyricism. While the band's earliest albums were rooted predominantly in punk rock and funk, their subsequent studio albums have since incorporated influences from many diverse genres of popular music and Americana into their sound...

Dirty Larry

You can usually break down a Jersey ska band by the numbers, and Dirty Larry was no exception: nine years, seven bassists, eight horn players, two frontmen… and countless shows. Relying on the punk-infused energy of bands like Rx Bandits, Less Than Jake, and Catch22, the eight-piece, suburban horn band distinguished itself from local contemporaries, most notably with big city gigs at Philadelphia clubs. Dirty Larry played music they loved regardless of what the current trend was. They rocked in various incarnations from 1998 until their final hoorah in 2007.
