MORIHIKO NAKAHARA, CONDUCTOR
Put on your zoot suit and swing with the energetic sounds of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, backed by the Spokane Symphony. This Eugene, Oregon-based band, established in 1989, set the bar for the neo-swing movement of the 1990s with their hit, Zoot Suit Riot. Enjoy the versatility of the Daddies’ music, riffing on early rock, mid ‘50s, hot jazz and Tin Pan Alley traditions, with some punk and ska tossed in. It’ll be a hot night with some cool cats!
