CAKE At Ommegang And MASS MoCA Memorial Day Weekend

May 19, 2017

Formed as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE bounded onto the scene in the mid-nineties with songs like “Rock n’Roll Lifestyle,” “The Distance,” and a perhaps unexpectedly effective cover of Gloria Gaynor’s disco hit, “I Will Survive.”

In their 20+ years, John McCrea and company -- including signature trumpeting by Vince DiFiore -- have released 6 albums and toured all over the world.

They are playing two shows in our region over Memorial Day Weekend. First at Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY on Friday, May 26 and then at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA on Sunday, May 28.
