Mayfest Announces Headliner

Tulsa International Mayfest has announced that Cherry Poppin’ Daddies will be the national headline act, scheduled to play on the main stage on the Williams Green at 9:30p.m. on Saturday, May 15th.  The concert will be free and open to the public.  

The Daddies brand of high-energy swing music has had, for years, the
unique ability to bring generations together. 

The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2009 with the honor of an induction into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.  The Daddies have an impressive range of popularity that makes them a hit with colleges, festivals, casinos and fairs. It’s the only band around
where high school aged Psychobilly scenesters and their grandparents
can come together dancing in the same audience.  Onstage, the Daddies have enough of an edge to not come off as bland or plastic and more than enough chops, class and style to satisfy any orthodox jazz fanatic.

Heather Pingry, Mayfest Executive Director said, “I know they’re going to be a great fit for Mayfest and audiences of all ages will enjoy the show!  We’ve got a great lineup this year and will feature over seventy-five acts on three outdoor stages.”
