REVIEWSPAGE

“Bubblegum, jangle, surf, that classic pop sound: all get equal time in the spotlight on the Cherry Drops' cool, debut long player, Everything's Groovy. Hooks, hooks and more hooks explode as these 14 songs get under your skin and burrow beneath the surface. Absolutely essential for melodic pop fans for whom the '60's still resonate supremely! Don't miss this one!”

Alan Haber's Pure Pop 24/7

 

“Mix up doses of power pop, bubblegum, garage rock, and sunshine pop and the result is a refreshing band called The Cherry Drops. These Drops have the good taste to cover The Raspberries, The Sweet, and The Syndicate of Sound, as well as appropriate the theme to “Laverne & Shirley” into their punky original “Schlemiel, Schlimazel, Hasenpfeffer Incorporated.” And the Beach Boys-influenced “Summertime Is A State Of Mind” was a great addition to our playlist on Wilson Beach Radio.”

Jeff Bleiel - Wilson Beach Radio

 

"Surrounded by their vintage equipment, The Cherry Drops deliver Everything's Groovy, a ringing, chiming, glorious pop-rock record. It’s a perfect fusion of sixties psychedelia and contemporary commercial power-pop, boasting the scrupulously-rendered sonic warmth of the former and the immediacy of the latter. This talented five-piece records slices of perfect, radio-friendly guitar-pop – psychedelic enough to appeal to record junkies and Sixties-retro fans, but smooth and bright enough to fit seamlessly into a modern rock set.”

“Surf, garage, and Pop! Mix em together and you end up with The Cherry Drops! Cherry Drops make you feel good with their special blended ingredients of surf, garage, and pop!”  

                Dave “The Rave” Kapulsky - Relics & Rarities Show, Freehold, NJ 

 

“The Cherry Drops wear their power pop hearts on their sleeves and there’s a lot of technique here between the main players Vern Shank and Joshua Cobb. Ferocious guitars as heard on “Melvin’s On the Make”. Also big credits for even naming a song “Schlemiel, Schlimazel, Hasenpfeffer Incorporated. “Pop, Pop,” “Outta' Sight,” and “Cutie Patootie” sound like what a bunch of good musicians might play at a neighborhood jam session, songs with changes everybody knows. Technically speaking, “I Wanna Be With You” is the best song on the album. More credit for resurrecting the Syndicate of Sound’s “Little Girl.” “Summertime Is A State Of Mine” sounds exactly like it should, a warm Beach Boys pastiche.”

“If I had to describe the "Cherry Drops" in one word, it would be "Refreshing". The songwriting, instrumentalists, and vocals are all superb! Just plain fun and I love playing their CD! It makes me and my listeners HAPPY!!”

"In these troubled times, it's a welcome salve to envelop yourself in the fuzzed out, late 60's inspired psychedelic bliss that is The Cherry Drops. In a world full of machine generated electronica and auto tune, it's time to embrace the vibrant and visceral 'warmth of the Sun' on Everything's Groovy...”

Jay Berrocal - Video Hits Rochester N.Y.

 

“The Cherry Drops LP-- nice stuff,  During the LA pop scene of the mid '90s, you woulda fit right in with my band the Wondermints.  There were tons of surfing/spying/60s-style bands. Your Raspberries cover of I Wanna Be With You ruled! The Wondermints did the song Go All the Way, and our 1st manager was Eric Carmen—really good work here on your release!”
