    Event Details:

    JORGE LUIS UZCÁTEGUI, CONDUCTOR

    Put on your zoot suit and swing with the energetic sounds of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, backed by the Spokane Symphony. This Eugene, an 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!
