Cherry Poppin' Daddies Third Single from Upcoming Album

September 26, 2023

The third single off The Daddies’ upcoming album is out and titled 'Party Shakle' here is what Steve Perry has to say about “Party Shake”:

“Party Shake” pits a Pentecostal preacher ranting against the depravities he is observing against an out of control, midnight soiree at a Storyville bordello. Storyville was the red light district of New Orleans from 1897 to 1917, and the area had a large part to do with the birthing of Jazz which evolved out of Ragtime. You can tell that the preacher is subconsciously titillated by the debauchery he is observing by the way he painstakingly describes every detail. In my head there is sort of a Blazing Saddles buffoonish, farcical quality to it. It’s definitely a satire of the hypocritical religious urge to mete out judgement and punishment to others, while internally engaging in the same desire landscape.”

He continues “The first two songs we released off this Swing album, “Lowdown Appreciator” and “Kingsized”, were of a more familiar Daddies sound, whereas “Party Shake” spotlights the ragtime piano playing of Andrew Oliver as well as hot jazz tuba in the bass. I wanted this recording to broaden our audience’s familiarity with our influences, which are quite wide ranging, while still grounding them in sounds they already ascribe to us. In doing so we attempt to gently forge a fuller picture of our intent, thereby allowing us freedom to address topics through use of genres (oftentimes ironically) which is a crucial piece in understanding our growing body of work.”
