CHERRY POPPIN’ DADDIES
That’s the challenge the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies have faced throughout their career, and indeed it’s sometimes put them on a difficult path. The initial mission was to make swing music that sounded contemporary. They wrote hard-hitting songs with storylines of domestic violence and social alienation. Once this goal was accomplished, the Daddies went boldly forth into other genres as well: ska, rockabilly, glam rock, psychedelia, mod, and metal, to name but a few, choosing to follow their own muse regardless of the feedback of fans and critics alike. Truth be told, individuality and integrity are a part of the bands DNA and have in turn reinforced their reputation. Granted, that image is well deserved; the desire to explore and the exercising of a peculiar artistic integrity has been an integral part of their character since they first formed some 25 years ago.
Aqualillies is the world’s most glamorous synchronized swimming entertainment company, reinventing the classic art for the new millennium.

Receiving her first “mixer” at the ripe age of 9, where Erica would play her mom’s R&B & hip-hop tapes and EQ them to her perfection while finding the perfect spots to transition from one track to the other explains where all the self-taught talent & passion comes from. “At an early age, I didn’t just hear music, I would listen to every detail in every record, and even today I do this which has really helped develop my sound as a DJ & producer” she explains.
Jacob “Kujo” is a b-boy first. He’s been a preeminent figure in the global b-boy/breakdance scene for 22 years, performing, competing, judging competitions, and teaching in 40 countries on 6 continents. His creative contributions to b-boy culture and movement vocabulary are indisputable, and continue to inspire and influence b-boys around the world to this day.
Kamala’s loving heart, intuitive spirit, and healing abilities have drawn people to her since she was a child. She began practicing yoga in the mid 90’s to relieve stress and migraines, and rapidly began to notice the healing benefits of yoga. It made such a dramatic impact in her own life; she realized her calling to share these gifts with others. Kamala received her teacher certification at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara.
