Hey all, I'm super stoked to be able to officially say that I'm now the drummer for the Cherry Poppin' Daddies! I know they are a band NOTHING like Rush, but I was so excited I had to post somewhere lol. I was in a pretty serious prog band up until about 2011, and then I fell out of drumming. I actually just started playing a few months ago, just in time to prepare for the drum audition for the band, and miraculously, they picked me! The funny thing is that I think I owe it to Neil and Rush for keeping my chops up while not actually playing drums. Rush has basically been the only band I've listened since I quit playing :Neil: :Neil: :Neil:

So yeah, super happy to be playing drums again, and even happier to have a spot with a decently known band!

I had to google the band, only to realize I had that greatest hit album in the late '90s.   Seems like an interesting band to be part of, congrats.

I saw TCPD in San Diego with Everclear and Marcy Playground In 1996-97. They were easily the best band on the bill. Congratulations!

And thank you everyone! I'm really excited!

Nate since Cherry Poppin' Daddies is a ska-swing band and you're into RUSH and like progressive-rock, you can incorporate Neil Peart's Grammy nominated drum solo 'O Baterista' into the set.

Listen at around the 7:24 mark to the end as 'O Baterista' has elements of jazz-swing incorporated into the arrangement.

Thanks everyone! To be honest, I only knew about 2 or 3 of their songs before starting to learn the audition material :facepalm:
I've already started to insert some Neil style fills in certain places (I just can't help myself) :oops:
The thing I failed to realize about the band is just how many different styles and genres they incorporate. I've had to learn a lot of new little grooves and go way outside my comfort zone, which is quite satisfying!
