Eugene's hit-recording ska and swing band Cherry Poppin' Daddies will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 21, at the Medford Armory, 1701 S. Pacific Highway.
The band sold about two million copies of its 1997 "Zoot Suit Riot: The Swingin' Hits of ..." and is back in the studio recording "Susquehanna." The new album will bring together the Daddies' West Coast and Latin influences of flamenco, greaser rock, swing, ska and glam. The album's name was taken from a river in upstate New York, where the band frontman Steve Perry grew up.
Local reggae band Oregon Transplant, featuring Frankie Hernandez, will open the show at the armory. Tickets cost $25 and are available at The Wharf Seafood Market and Eatery, Jackson Creek Pizza, Howiee's on Front, Johnny B's and Musichead in Medford; at Cripple Creek Music and Music Coop in Ashland; and at the Treasure Trove in Grants Pass. The show is open to all ages. Call 864-9614.
