POPS 4: CHERRY POPPIN’ DADDIES

Saturday, February 1 at 8pm
Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox

Put on your zoot suit and swing with the energetic sounds of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, backed by the Spokane Symphony. It’s the Daddies’ first concert with an orchestra, thanks to charts written by the Spokane Symphony’s Assistant Principal Second Violin David Armstrong who is a talented arranger. The Eugene, OR-based Daddies, established in 1989, set the bar for the neo-swing movement of the 1990s with their hit, “Zoot Suit Riot.” Enjoy the versatility of their music, riffing on early rock, jazz and Tin Pan Alley traditions, with punk and ska tossed in. It’ll be a hot night with some cool cats! Resident Conductor Morihiko Nakahara conducts the Spokane Symphony for this pops concert. Tickets start at $43. DETAILS
