Cherry´s belting delivery not only stands out vividly on record but also with his personal appearances, which accounts for his universal popularity... especially with the teen-age contingency.

It´s a rather tough task to try and categorize the music of Cherry Casino and The Gamblers. It certainly is music to dance to and have fun with but also music that features a heavy after-beat and a breathless singing style that listeners of all ages can enjoy. This is the mixture that has helped Cherry and the boys zoom to the top and gain their world-wide reputation as one of the hottest bands in the rock and roll genre!
What´s so special about the sound of Cherry Casino? The key is that his recordings sound like a mirror image of his stage appearances.

These songs are as crisp and refreshing as a glass of ice-cold lemonade on a hot summer day.

Reviews

"The band plays classic 1950´s Rock and Roll with catchy lyrics and hard driving guitar/sax lead breaks and is trying to come as close as possible to the magic sounds of the era"

"Everything is here. Top quality musicianship, expert production, well composed lyrics, (sometimes cheerful, sometimes saucy) and an incredibly communicable beat, you simply have to get involved in. This has dance floor material stamped all over it. Modern day bands seldom produce such high class new material with a close reverence to a period that gave rise to such ground breaking sounds. It’s fresh, massively enjoyable, it will bring a smile to your face and should be around the top of your wish list."
