Velvet Sessions at Hard Rock Hotel Presents Cherry Poppin' Daddies May 26

Every month, except November and December, the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando hosts a live concert called Velvet Sessions. It’s a 21 and over event that features classic rock and pop artists performing in an intimate club-like atmosphere.

This month, swing-ska band Cherry Poppin’ Daddies will be performing on Thursday, May 26.

The band hit it big with 1997’s Zoot Suit Riot album with the title single, “Zoot Suit Riot,” and “Brown Derby,” achieving major airplay. They recently released album The Boop-A-Doo, featuring the single, “That Lindy Hop.”

Tickets for Velvet Sessions are $29 in advance online or $35 at the door. This not only gets you in the door, but free specialty drinks, finger foods and warm-up tunes from 6:30 pm until show time. Complimentary valet parking is also included.

For $50, you can upgrade to VIP, which in addition to the above perks, gives you access to a special viewing area with a private bar serving those free specialty drinks all night. After the show, a DJ plays tunes until 1am.
