The Cherry Drops are an amazing american bubblegum, garage & power pop group consisting mainly of Vern Shank, Josh Cobb, Evan Foster and James Schiavone.
The band has released 2 full length records so far on the well known MuSick Recordings label from Burbank, CA.: the debut album "Everything's Groovy" in 2013 and their sophomore record "Life is a bowl of Cherry Drops", in 2015. On both records, The Cherry Drops are mixing together the vocal harmonies of The Beach Boys, the hooks of The Archies and the power of Cheap Trick to come up with one unique blend of sugary rock'n' roll.
Along side great original tunes like “Outta’ Sight” or "Pop, Pop ('Til You Drop)" the debut album also includes amazingly cool covers of “Little Girl” (Syndicate Of Sound), “”I Wanna Be With You” (Raspberries) and “Wig-Wam Bam” (The Sweet).
This new record displays a batch of incredible originals like "Far out", the anthemic "It's a Surfin' Thing" or the beautiful "Dream California". And then again another dose of perfectly executed covers: "Psychotic Reaction" (The Count Five), “Just A Chance” (Badfinger), “Everything’s Alright” (The Archies) and “That Was The Greatest Song” (The Pooh Sticks).
And, if that ain’t enough, the record features guest appearances from Tony Valentino of The Standells, Steve Boone of The Lovin’ Spoonful, and “The Mighty Manfred” Jones of The Woggles!
