Hey Everybody,

This is Steve Perry the singer/bandleader of Cherry Poppin Daddies. I have some bad news. My beautiful wife, business partner and the love of my life, Yvette (Cherry Perry), received a dire colorectal cancer diagnosis on the day before Valentines day this year. Our adorable little family (our youngest is 8) is beyond devastated. 

For this reason, I am canceling all CPD shows going forward, for the time being, in order that I may be her main caregiver as she faces this difficult and scary fight. Please accept my sincere apologies. This has been very sudden and the outlook is not at all certain. When, god willing, she is all clear and stable again I plan to resume playing the joyful music that we have been making all these many years, an avocation that has become the work of my life. But for right now, Yvette needs me as her husband and her health care advocate. My kids need me at home to keep the trains running on time and to cry with. 

I am nearing completion of what I feel might be our best record- a skacore punky thing that I am stoked on, AND I was about to announce a special event that would be incredibly fabulous… now the status of that announcement is up in the air. If the fates allow we will carry through with these projects as soon as we can and I will keep you updated here.

But for now, its all about being with my best friend and soul sister #1 as she fights for her life. None of this is anybodies fault- its just one of those things. As for me, I look forward to spending lots of time with Yvette and as a result of our proximity becoming a better, wiser, and more compassionate person.

Love you guys and appreciate all the support. There is a lot of good in this world. Never a day goes by that I don’t realize how precious you all are to me. I intend to pay it forward with goodness of my own. I’ve come a long way from the snotty, prickly little 80’s punk I started out as. You have all taught me so much.

More big art coming your way! I promise.

Go buy some stuff here on daddies.com and I will sign it and send it to you asap.

Thanks,

Steve

World Premiere Video!
"The Ding-Dong Daddy of the D-Car Line"

For the 20th Anniversary of the Zoot Suit Riot recording we are releasing the official video of Ding-Dong Daddy. This song has been used countless times in TV dance shows, stage shows, and not to mention having been our stage show closer for years. So its time to give Ding-Dong Daddy some video love.

The story of how I came to write this is as follows… I had this acquaintance who approached me one day and said “Hey I was demo-ing a house the other day and I smashed my hammer through a wall and between the joists I pulled out this old yellowed paper. I saw the headline and I knew I needed to get it over to you”. The headline read “Ding Dong Daddy Gets Short Term”. 

I scanned the piece and it seemed that in San Francisco during the war in the 40’s all the able bodied, young cable car conductors were drafted so the city began to fill the slots with older gentleman and basically whoever they could find. One of these hires was a portly, balding ex- Lion tamer (?!) named Francis Van Wie. Francis used his “man in a uniform” charm and conductors position to woo a number of lonely ladies on his cable car route. He ended up actually marrying 13 women before he was inevitably found out! This lovable lothario spent time in San Quentin for the offense, but his unlikely story ended up being a sensation nationally. After his release he somehow got married a couple of more times and always to great acclaim. Such was his notoriety that he ended up, many years later, in the 60’s as an MC in the world famous burlesque club in Oakland, the El Rey Theatre, where Blaze Starr and Tempest Storm did their bump and grind.

Obviously, when I finished reading this story I rushed home and wrote a song about it. 

To get your own 20th Anniversary of Zoot Suit Riot, available in Vinyl, CD and download forms, visit me over at daddies.com and I will put it in the mail for you and sign it myself. Don’t forget to process your order (at PayPal) or I won’t know to send it.

Enjoy. Steve.
