Ladies and Gentlemen,,
I have great news. My new record is finally finished. It's called “Married To
Myself.” It’s such a good feeling to complete this record that has been so important
for me to make. I want to thank all of you for following me through this whole
process. Without your feedback on the songs, and your inspiration I couldn't
have done it. This record took me over 3 years to make. I put my heart and soul
into it, and sacrificed everything to complete it. My last record “Life Is Sweeter”
was made 11 years ago. Many of you were here when that was released. I really
needed to put out new music for me, and for you. Enter “Married To Myself.”
To sum it up thats what it has been. A marriage between myself and this record.
Now I want a divorce. Haha. This process has been so fulfilling that it is now
my goal to put out an album every year from this point on. Thank you for sticking
with me. I really hope that you enjoy this new album for years to come.
What started out as a test to see to see what song or two I would record in
a major studio changed into a 4 or 5 song home studio EP. That eventually changed
when a wave of inspiration rolled in and turned this project into a 9 song full
album. Most of the songs are very new. There are a few old ones that I knew
needed to be recorded. The oldest song being “Down To The Wire” which was written
when I was 17 years old with my first band No Reazen. The Song “Backward” was
written in 2002. “Vampires” was recorded in 2008, and “Models on Bikes” was
written in 2010.
I made a CD that I’m very proud of, and the concept really came out just as
planned. The idea of me standing on a wedding cake as a cake topper by myself
with my guitar really came together beautifully. I couldn’t have made it happen
without Scott Spooner, and Marcela Aguero. I hope that you have a CD player
because I believe that its still the second best way to listen to music. I made
something that you can actually hold in your hand, look at, collect, and have
forever. The digital streaming world is great and it is what’s happening now
but you can't hold an MP3 in your hands. Having said that I am very happy to
also be on digital platforms such as iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and all of
the others. Please go to my updated jerrycherry.com to easily access all of
those sites and to purchase the full physical CD.
While you’re at my site please sign up to my email list. I would really appreciate
it. It's basically a monthly love letter similar to this one. Lastly, please
subscribe to Jerry Cherry on Youtube. I’m really going to be making a lot of
content there in the upcoming months. I would love for you to be a part of it.
Happy Holidays to all of you. I hope that 2019 was a good year. For me personally
it was quite an important one. Let's look forward to having 2020 vision next
year. God bless, and see you soon.
very happy to announce that I have a new song that
I just finished recording. It’s called “Miracle.”
I hope that you really enjoy it. I worked very hard
on this for the past month and a half. This song actually
came to be from the words that I wrote in a journal
every day from April 16th through July 16 of this
year. As a matter of fact my last two songs “ Remember
My Love,” and “Take Your Pictures Down” were written,
and recorded while writing this journal. Have a listen
to those songs as well in the video section. Starting
to sense a little Star Wars type prequel here? Haha.
It was a challenge that I made for myself to write
a song from this journal, and I did it. Its a very
simple song. There’s not much going on as far as instruments
go. The hard work was really the lyrics, and the vocals.
I wanted to keep the music simple highlighting what
I felt was important being the vocals, and words.
Once again I played everything on the song. I also
engineered, and mixed it. The song was mastered by
Mark Dann. This is the 8th, and final song that I’m
recording, for now at least. I have been working on
this studio project since the summer of 2016 so needless
to say It’s time to start venturing off into different
areas outside of the studio. I was actually only going
to record 5 songs. Then a wave of inspiration came
over me, and I had no choice then to write, and record
you’ve been receiving my emails for years, or if this
is your first one, i’t means so much to me that your
interested in what I do, and the music that I make.
I look forward to sharing my next endeavor with you
in the very near future. Keep moving forward, enjoy
your life, and believe in yourself. Do what you were
put on this planet to do whatever it is, and you will
do great things God willing.
hope that your beating the heat this summer. Great
news! I have a brand new song. Its called “Take your
pictures down”. It was definitely the fasted song
that I’ve written, and recorded in just over a month.
Its amazing what you can accomplish when your give
yourself a deadline. Yes I could’ve kept going. I
left a few notes in my head, and not on tape “Hard
Drive.” Haha. But it is what it is, and I’m very happy
with the outcome. I’ve been able to release 3 new
songs in the last 3 months which I attribute to being
in a very creative state lately, and taking full advantage
of it. Please have a listen to “TYPD”. I hope that
you get something from it. I put all of my heart and
soul into it so please enjoy, and share it with your
friends, and family. Once again I played everything
on the song, and mixed it. It was mastered by Mark
the live performance front I was invited to play at
an event called “Songs on Cortelyou - live at Bar
Chord. Its a public event put on by one of my good
friends Scott Stein. He’s as badd ass as it gets on
the keyboard, and a great songwriter. It will be Scott
Stein, Kyle Lacy, Sarah Wise, and myself sharing the
stage. We’ll play are own songs while we all back
up each other. The show is on Monday, July 29th from
9 - midnight, 21+, no cover (but please tip and buy
CD’s!) Yo it’s Brooklyn. Fuggetabouit.
cool, be possitve, and be a good fucking human being.
imagine that your enjoying your Memorial Day weekend.
I have a new song called “Remember my Love.” I just
finished recording it. Its a simple song with just
acoustic guitar, and vocals. It wasn’t my intention
for it to be this stripped-down. Time restraints had
a lot to do with it. Maybe someday I’ll go back and
do it up a little more. In the mean time please enjoy
this recording. Its a very personal song with a tremendous
amount of meaning for me. I hope you can relate. I
want to give my respect to every soldier, and veteran.
Thank you for your service. Be great, enjoy the spring,
and always put a cherry on top.
have some good news. I just finished recording my
song ”Models on Bikes." I wrote this song quite
a while ago, and I have to say that since then a spring
hasn't approached that didn't make me think of this
song, and want to record it. Well, I finally did.
"Like to hear it? Here it goes!"
recorded “Models on Bikes” in my home recording studio.
I found myself working at a “feverish pitch” completing
this song much faster than my previous. Once again
I played all the instruments on the song including
guitar, bass, vox, backup vox, and I programmed the
drums. I also engineered the recording, and mixed
it. It was mastered by Chris Collier who once again
did a fantastic job. I have to give credit to my very
talented friend Matt Basile for the bass line. Its
a good one. I will have more of a collaborative effort
for future recordings but this is just the way it
is for now.
enjoy listening to this song as well as the others
on my youtube channel. As much fun as it is to write,
and record I’ve really missed performing my own music
live. Expect a show soon with a full band playing
all my latest tunes, and some new ones. Please subscribe
to my Youtube channel, like, and leave a message in
the comment section. I’d love to hear from you. Also,
please like my band page on Facebook for all things
am so happy to announce that I have a brand new song
that I just finished recording. Its called “Jacquie.”
It was recorded and mixed at my home studio in Brooklyn,
NY. I played all of the instruments on the song- guitars,
bass, vocals, and I programmed the drums. I also mixed
the song using Protools software with the Universal
Audio interface. I spent many hours tweaking the song
trying to get the best possible mix. I think it came
out great, and I hope you do too. Thank you to Chris
Collier for thr excelent mastering job. Please have
a listen. Share it with your friends and family. While
you’re at it, have a listen to my last three recordings:
“Backwards,” “Down to the Wire,” “and Married to Myself.”
All of them are on my Youtube channel. I would love
to hear your thoughts about the songs. Which is your
favorite? Do you notice the recording quality getting
better? Do you want to win a dream date with Jerry
Cherry? Haha just kidding. Leave your thoughts in
the comments section. I’d love to hear from you.
Like me on Facebook, and subscribe to my Youtube channel.
Rock on all you wonderful people.
love and success in ’19.
hope that your holiday season is going great. I have
a gift for you. Its a new recording of a song that
I wrote back in 2002, or 2003. This song is called
Backward. It was always, and still is very important
to me. I have to credit my mother for the inspiration
for the song. She once said to me "you cant go
forward if your looking backward." I knew right
there that those words were a song in the making.
I did record the original demo of this song shorty
after I wrote it. About a year later, I left Florida
to head back to New York where I was born. Many singer
/ songwriters come to NY with a song in there heart.
For me I would have to say that this was mine. The
meaning of this song I believe is timeless. I recorded,
and mixed this song in my home studio. I played all
the guitars, bass, and I programmed the drums. I also
sang the lead, and background vox. The song was mastered
by Chris Collier, who also mastered my last recording
Down to the wire. Before that, my song Married to
myself was mastered by Mike Rogers. My recording,
and mixing only goes so far. Without their mastering
skills, and advice, these recordings would not sound
as good as they do in my humble opinion. Please listen
to the other two songs mentioned as well as Backward
on Youtube. Please feel free to give me some feedback
on what you think of the songs. I would love to hear
Holidays. I wish you a heathy, happy, and prosperous
hope that your spring is treating you great. I have
good news. I have a new song recorded. It’s part of
my home studio recording demo sessions. This is the
second song I’m releasing after the first one “Married
to Myself.” The idea is to put out these demo’s, and
see what tunes get the best reaction. This new recording
is of the song “Down to the Wire."
it’s an old song. It was written when I was a teenager
with my band “No Reazen.” The band concisted of Me,
Ronnie Oakes, Carl Bailey, Mike Verrico, and John
Pierre Rammond aka Slyde Rayon. I was 14 years old
when I meet fellow guitarist Carl Bailey who was 17.
He was, and still is a great guitar player. It was
only a few years after I met him that he would write
this terrific guitar riff. I also have to give credit
to Carl for the first part off the first guitar solo.
He played such a great lead that I pretty much copied
it for the recording. Why would I want to have anything
different? What he originally did was perfect.
the song “Down to the Wire.” Its a very special song.
Play it, enjoy it, and share it with friends, and
got some good news. I have a new song titled “Married
to Myself.” I recorded it in my new home studio. I’m
very happy with it. I think it sounds terrific, and
I’d like to share with you. Just note, it is a demo.
This was my first crack at recording at home in a
few years so this song survived many learning curves.
I will be putting out these demo recordings more frequently
now that I have the first song under my belt. I really
wanted to get some new music to you. Its been a long
time, and I’m really happy, and excited to finally
have something to share. Also by doing this, I’ll
be able to get a good feel for what songs stick the
most for my next record. Thats were you guy come into
play. I’d love to get your all your feedback about
the songs. Now please enjoy demo number one “Married
to Myself.” Its a straight ahead hard rock song with
a bit of humor, a bit more reality, and a bit bit
more guitar solo. I hope you enjoy it.
am very excited to mention that I will be performing
this Friday night at The legendary Bitter End. Joining
me on Drums is Felipe Torres, and on the bass, Ricardo
Rodriguez. We had a great time performing at Rockwood
Music Hall back in April. Now we’re ready to keep
the ball rolling with another original music showcase.
For those of you who have been asking me to play earlier
for some time now, your wish is my command. Most of
the songs we’ll be playing are brand spanking new.
We’ll also play a few songs from my record “Life is
Sweeter…” just for good measure. So to get you in
the mood a little bit I want to share with you some
demo recordings that I’ve made recently. They're very
raw, just some guitar, and vocals. A few of these
songs will ultimately be on the next Jerry Cherry
record. Perhaps you can tell me your favorites. I
would love that.
very excited for this next phase of my musical journey.
In the last few years I’ve been able to play with
some amazing bands. From Chubby Checker to tribute
band’s such as No Excuses, Dancing Dream, Disco Unlimited,
White Wedding, and Hair Metal Time Machine. I’ve become
such a better musician, and performer playing this
music with these groups of amazing people. Please
check them all out. I’m excited to see what kind of
influence it has on me now that I’m writing, and performing
my own music again which is so important to me. I
hope that you’ll take this musical trip with me. Enjoy
the demos online. Love to see you Friday night. In
the unfortunate event that you can’t come, you can
stream the show live from anywhere in the world at
147 Bleecker Street
(between Thompson and LaGuardia)
New York City, NY 10012
been a while hasn't it? I hope that you are ready
for some new music. I'm happy to finally say that
I have my first show playing my own music in quite
some time. It will be at Rockwood Music Hall on Wednesday,
April 29th at 12 midnight. It sounds late but it’s
really not. That used to be early, remember? After
being a sideman for the better part of the last seven
years, it feels great to be playing my own music again,
as well. I'll be performing mostly all new songs,
and 1 or 2 from my first record "Life Is Sweeter…"
I'm also happy to announce that drummer Felipe Torres,
and Bassist Ricardo Rodriguez who played on the record
will be playing the show with me. Come hear the new
songs that are ultimately going to be on a new record
out this summer.
really excited about my new music. I've been recording
demos for all the new songs, and a few older ones
that found their way to the surface. They’re sounding
real good, and I can’t wait to share them with you
live. Look for more guitar playing in the new music.
As much as I always love singing and writing songs,
my biggest passion was always playing guitar. I've
always tried to play just what was right for my songs
in the past but now I'm flipping it around. These
new songs will really showcase my guitar playing a
lot more. I hope that you can come out and join us
on this special night.
for something "Totally Tubular, Dude," check out my
80's tribute band White Wedding. I love playing with
this band. This music has been a big influence on
me again, and has always been especially as a guitarist.
I've come full circle, and around again.
you at the shows.

this beautiful Spring weather. One way to enjoy yourself
is to come down to The Red Lion on Tuesday, April
10th. My 90's tribute band No Excuses is performing
our first show in Manhattan. No Excuses is a great
band covering the best of 90's rock. We play music
from Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, and The
Foo Fighters just to name a few, and mostly the heavier,
harder stuff. I think you'll love it. Scroll down
to the video section to see a montage of the band
performing. Come down and party with us at this great
NYC club. Here's the "No Excuses" website.
also been plucking away in another band called Big
Daddy Deluxe. BDD is a truly authentic Rockabilly
band with big booming bass, twangy guitars, and lots
of snare. We play tunes from Eddie Cochran, Johnny
Cash, Carl Perkins, 50's Elvis, The Stray Cats, and
much more. BDD has a show coming up on April 14th
at The Huntington Moose Lodge. Theres a car show from
5-7, then 3 great Rockabilly bands. Come to the rumble.
Check out BDD's Facebook page.
for something really outside the realm of what you
thought I would do. I've been rehearsing as (Bjorn)
in an Abba tribute band called Abba Girlz. It was
only the two female singers, Agnetha, and Frida, hence
the name, until recently when we put a full band together
around them. Its sounding, and looking great, and
it's lots of fun. We have our first show on July 1st,
at B.B. Kings, in NYC. See more at http://www.gigmasters.com/Abba-Tribute-Band/Abba-Girlz/

coming up and would love to see your smiling faces.

has been some cool stuff happening in the Cherry camp
lately. First of all, I recently joined the band No
Excuses. They're an ass-kicking, hard rock 90's tribute
band from Long Island. The band’s set list is
terrific. They’re a great group of guys and
I'm happy to be part of it. Ironically I just played
my first show with them last week at a club called
JC's in Manorville. It was great. Check out the band’s
website at www.noexcusesli.com for upcoming shows.

but certainly not least, I just became an endorsee
of a very interesting new product called the "Jam
Kat" from a company called pick-smith. Its basically
a ring on your pointer finger that holds the pick
and lets it flip up and out of the way so that you
to pick with your fingers, then you can easily grab
the pick again. It's a great invention. See me demo

Ho Ho. Santa Cherry has some good news for you: I'll
be playing an
acoustic show at "Slane Bar" this Thursday
night, Dec 9th. Yay! I'll be
playing half original songs, including a bunch of new
songs you've never
heard before, and half covers. I'm so lucky to have
some very talented
special guests, great friends of mine playing these
cover songs with me, as
well as dishing out a few surprises themselves. "Slane
Bar," AKA "Slane
Public House" is a really cool place located at
102 MacDougal St. NYC
(Bleecker & MacDougal St.) in Greenwich Village.
Best of all, its FREE.
They also have really cheap drinks, and great food too.
Check out their
website at http://www.slanenyc.com/ . We play from 10:30
until 11:45, so
swing in and be Merry Cherry. But come early, because
"Buy The Sky," another
great band hits the stage 8:30. Check them out at
http://www.Myspace.com/BuyTheSkyBand. See ya Thursday
your calendars... I have two more free, full band shows
coming up. The
first is on Wednesday, January 12th, at midnight, at
"Rockwood Music Hall."
How sweet it is to play "The Rock?" The other
is at "The National
Underground," on Thursday, February 3rd, at 10pm,
"upstairs" which is
actually the ground floor. Not downstairs! I never ever
anywhere. I stopped doing that when my friend Rob from
the coolest band in
the world "The Compulsions," said that playing
downstairs in NYC is a joke.
It's true, I agree. I also agree that if you trip and
fall down the stairs
and happen to have an instrument on you, well then I
suppose its ok to play.
Thank you Rob for the great advice. I'll have more info
about these rocking
shows, and about how falling down the stairs can hurt
if you're not properly
trained, coming soon.

talk about the great merger that happened when The
Funk Church from Philly came out and kicked out the
funk with us at Rockwood Music Hall on July 5th. It
was such a blast rocking out with them and I'm looking
forward to busting out the funk again. There are some
videos posted from that funky performance. See them
on YouTube here:
We received some press at Broadwayworld.com about
that rocking, funky, evening.
check out Radio Crystal Blue. Its a weekly podcast
that plays music from many NYC bands as well as music
from around the country. They played my song "Slip"
and had some interesting things to say. Have a listen.
I’m at about 1:35 into the show:
Please be my friend on Facebook; you'll be able to
keep up with any impromptu performances -- and you'll
be able to keep your eye on the Cherry.
That's all for now. See you soon.
It’s summer, and everything is hot and funky.
But just wait: it’s about to get even funkier.
First of all, if you missed the last Jerry Cherry
and the Mayhem show at Rockwood Music Hall, now you’re
in luck. There's a video posted on YouTube of my new
song, “Shadow Devil Sister,” from that
very special night. Here's the link. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2gk8uApZ9k
There's also a great review of that show from Broadwayworld.com.
Just go to the press section of www.jerrycherry.com
to read it. While you're there, check out some of
the other great press I've received recently.
On July 5th, Rockwood Music Hall isn’t going
to know what hit them when Jerry Cherry and the Mayhem
merge their power rock sound with the funk, neo-soul
style sounds of the Philly-based band Funk Church.
Fronted by none other that Chubby Checker’s
son Shan Egan, and featuring keyboardist John Bigham
(Chubby Checker band), Funk Church will help us turn
the stage at Rockwood Music Hall into something reminiscent
of Soul Train. Cherries, I introduce to you, Jerry
Cherry and the Funk Church. Check out Funk Church
at www.myspace.com/funkchurch. Put on your dancing
shoes, because it’s going to be a hot one.
On May 28th, I performed three songs on the Time Warner
cable TV show “New York Rocks.” Funk Church's
Shan Egan, who is promoting his new record, performed
as well. The show is scheduled to air sometime in
June. Stay tuned. After the filming, there was a late
night jam at The National Underground in downtown
NYC. Shan and I sat in with the band Aki is the Glue
and jammed a cool Stones tune. You can check out the
performance on Youtube. Here is the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu51PkzWfDc
While you’re there, check out some of the behind-the-scenes
footage from the New York Rocks taping.
If you’re not my friend on Facebook already,
please become one; you'll be able to keep up with
any impromptu performances -- and you'll be able to
keep a better eye on me! I just posted some really
awesome pictures that fans, friends and I took across
the country over the last six months. Check them out
on my Facebook and Myspace pages. Also, always check
out my tour dates. You’ll be surprised how close
we are to you. That’s all for now, Cherries.
See you soon.
I hope you’re all feeling good. I have a few
shows coming up. Tonight, Fri the 9th, FREE upstairs
at The National Underground, my Kick Ass Rock cover
band ‘The Mayhem’ plays from 1-3am, immediately
following Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors. If you
love to rock, you’ll love this band. We play
different stuff. Fun stuff.
Since 'The Mayhem' chemistry has been so awesome,
we’ve decided to morph some originals from the
other band mates with new music from myself that has
been Mayhemed. These new tunes are killer and we’re
very excited to put them out there. We’ll be
performing our first show at Rockwood Music Hall on
April 21st, midnight. Joining me, on guitar is Adam
Paul Leach, Drew Mortali (James Maddock) on bass,
and Aaron Brooks (Moby) on Drums. It's loud, fun,
and twin leads. Whew. One of my favorite singer /
keyboardist’s Misty Boyse is also playing on
this night. I’m very happy about that. This
show is also free with a one drink min. I want to
I’m also playing a free and very low key solo
gig at The National Underground on Sunday, April 11th,

I actually found some guys that are incredible musicians

that same magic and putting in into an original band.
Half of this show will be Jerry Cherry songs, and
the other half will be tunes put together by The Mayhem.

Cherry Rocks the Teens Tonight
I hope that everyone is having a beautiful summer.
Mine has been very sweet. I have a really cool show
tonight at the ATC (Amity Teen Center). This place
is just insane. We performed there once already back
in January and it was one of the most fun shows ever.
These kids really know how to rock. Besides bands,
the ATC has practically every game known to man. It’s
an all ages show so put on your game faces and boogie
on down. The ATC is in Woodbridge, CT. It’s
only an hour and a half from NYC, and well worth the
trip. These kids are the future of America and I like
where were going.
In Theatre news, my music is being used for the “Rock”
Incidental score for Adam Roebuck’s Off-Broadway
production of Spring’s Awakening. It runs through
Sunday, August 30th. See www.springstix.com for tix
and more info. The Theater’s not dead.
I have a few acoustic shows around the country that
I’m very proud to be apart of. I’m performing
at writer Kristin Harmel's party for the release of
her fifth novel, “Italian for Beginners,”
very cool. I’m also opening up for guitarist
Roger Filgate who is a monster guitarist and is a
treat for me to watch. I have some exciting Chubby
Checker shows that are going to kick but. Lastly,
for the first time ever, I’ll be playing guitar
for singer- songwriter Jamie Rae for a few shows.
Please come out. We’d love to squeeze you.
Cherry at Rockwood July 8th (plus other shows)
Hope everyone is staying cool. It’s freaking
hot out there. Speaking of cool, I have a show at
Rockwood Music Hall on Wednesday, July 8th at 11 p.m.,
which I’m calling, “A Family Affair.”
This is a very special show for me, as I’ve
decided to share the stage with some of my closest
friends and fellow musicians. Besides playing Jerry
Cherry songs, my band and I are going to back up a
few different artists that I’ll be hitting the
road with in the coming weeks. Among the special guests
will be the band HiFi, performing their new song,
“She’s My Girl,” which is currently
burning up radio airwaves. Jamie Rae will also join
us to sing her song, “Never.” There will
be other very special appearances too. I haven’t
played in New York in a while and would love to see
you there. I love and miss all of you!
July 8th will not just be a great night at Rockwood
but a full day of music indeed. The day will start
early with a performance with Chubby Checker on the
ABC News Now entertainment show, “What’s
The Buzz.” ABC News Now is available on cable,
broadband and mobile in 55 million households nationwide.
Check out their website for a live stream and viewing
info for the show at: http://abcnews.go.com/abcnewsnow/story?id=6444026
. The show airs sometime between noon and 2 pm. We’ll
be performing a remix of one of Chubby Checker’s
top ten hits of 1961. This remix has never been performed
live, and I’m very excited to be a part of it.
Also on July 8th, Chubby Checker and the Wildcats
will be performing at Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center
(62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam), with
a Twist lesson at 6:30 and a show at 8:30. Finally,
a chance for all my NYC friends to come out and see
this great show! Tix are $15, general admission. Here
are some more upcoming shows, including one tomorrow,

That’s right Cherries!
You heard me right. I will be singing at a fundraiser
as Elvis Presley. Zenbaby Theatre Company is hosting
the party of the 50’s Decade. It’s called
The Sweet Soul Sock Hop. A night of song, dance, and
revelry of all sorts! Songs, dance competitions, raffles,
skits, comedy, craaazy! Be there or be square. This
is a fundraiser for Zenbaby Theatre Companies Summer
Productions. Have a few drinks and hop your socks

The show is called The Daily Buzz. The show is live
on May 26th. I will perform my first song at 7:45,
interview at 8:20, and then perform my second song
at 8:45. These are EST. They will also play my Freakshow
video. Yeehaw that’s great. Here are the stations
where the Daily Buzz is carried. http://dailybuzznow.com/localstations.aspx

don’t carry the show. I promise you will see
it shortly after. This will be great exposure for
me. 2 million people watch this show. That’s
a lot of new Cherries.
While I was on the road for the past two weeks with
Chubby Checker, I wrote a little article for Indie
Sounds New York and Austin. Heres the link. http://indiesoundsny.typepad.com/indie_sounds_ny/2009/05/jerry-cherrys-latest-tour-letter-austin-tonight.html
By the way, I’m not quite sure I’ll be
playing The Annex on June 4th due to booking issues.
Back to the tour. The show in Austin was amazing.
There was a great crowd for both mine and Chubbys
show. If I could have just a bit of Chubbys charisma,
I would be over the top Cherrylicious. The tour couldn’t
have ended sweeter than it did in Galveston, Texas.
Who knows what Hurricane Ike pushed up out of that
ocean when it hit there last September. I’m
glad the city if finally recovering. All I know now
is that it’s a place not only Glen Campbell
loves, but so do I.
I will leave you with a few more recent press clips
for all your guilty Cherry pleasures. For tour dates,
NYC shows and everything else Cherry.

Cherry Off Broadway 3-31 SXSW
want to start off by saying that our show in Texas
at SXSW was and amazing experience. We all had the
time of our lives. The weather was beautiful, the
town was awesome, and we were all lucky enough to
see some of the best bands in the world perform at
this spectacular event. All these great bands were
very inspiring for me to see while gearing up for
my performance on the outside patio of The Creekside
Lounge. The place was jam packed all night with good
ol’ Texas folks, as well as music industry peeps,
and poperotsy. Included in the media frenzy were NYC’s
own BJ Barratt, and Pete Harris. Check out the press
section of www.jerrycherry.com to see a press article

to all the new Cherries that I’ve recently met
on my cross country tour with Chubby Checker that
are receiving my news letter for the first time. I
hope that everyone managed to stay warm this winter.
Maybe you had someone to snuggle up with, maybe you
didn’t. Nevertheless, it’s starting to
warm up here in New York, and also in Tejas.
Speaking of Texas, APPR is having its debut showcase

Now hear this! We all knew this day would come: I
will be singing in an Off Broadway show called Spoon
River Anthology. Spoon River is collection of poems
that will be spoken by 25 actors. Each poem is an
epitaph of a dead citizen, delivered by the dead themselves.
When the four singers including myself come out singing,
it acts as relief, sometimes comic, offering a much
needed distraction from the poems’ very serious
subject matter. Please join us at the Roy Arias Theater
Center located in the Times Square Arts Center 300
West 43rd St. (Btw 8th & 9th Ave) 5th Floor. See

I also want to mention what a great show we had in

along with four great local bands and had my friends
Misty Boyce and The Rich Girls from NYC come and perform
after me. There was a great write up in The Hartford
Advocate about the show. See the article below in

Earlier that afternoon we performed a Radio Show at
WNHU in the University of New Haven. DJ Kyle Halligan
hosted the show called Hectic Eclectic. We performed
4 songs, talked about the album Life Is Sweeter…,
touring, and playing guitar with Chubby Checker. There
is a video on Youtube of one of the songs we performed
there in studio. See the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOfq-BO0uUE
Check this out! My Video Freakshow is also #5 out
of 700 video’s on Ourstage.com Check it out
. If I hit #1 by Feb 1, I think I win a banana. I
could really use more potassium. Please see it. Did
you ever walk down 1st Avenue in NYC and see The East
Village Radio Station? The host, 2BadJim (aka Jim
Allen) placed me in his playlist along with Nick Cave,
Jeff Buckley, and lots of other greats. Listen to
the playlist at http://eastvillageradio.com/modules.php?name=evrshow&showid=128
Last but certainly not least, I’m still in the
running to make the Alive with Clive compilation album.
This album is to raise money for people suffering
from AIDS, and to prevent the further spread of AIDS
in South Africa. It’s a very good cause and
I want to be on the album. Please check the site and

Cherry invades CT. Fuse TV
I just got off the road after playing a great Jerry
Cherry show in DC, and two amazing Chubby Checker
shows in Lancaster, PA, and Manistee, Michigan where
there was over two feet of snow. Now, I’m very
excited to be performing this Friday night, January
23rd, 9:pm, at the Amity Teen Center in Woodbridge,
CT. It turns out that NYC’s own Rich Girls,
and Misty Boyce is on the bill that night as well.
Yippee. I will also be performing on a live radio
show that Friday afternoon. Located on the Univ of
New Haven’s campus, DJ’s Kyle Halligan
host’s a radio show called “Hectic Eclectic,”
88.7 WNHU, which airs from 2pm-4pm. Tune in or listen
on-line. I received some press from the Washington
Express as well as making the best of 08’ compilation
CD by BJ Barrett. See it all in the press section
of www.jerrycherry.com . A big thank you to my new
friends that I met in these amazing places. I look
forward to seeing you all again soon.
Check this out! My video for Freakshow was entered
in a contest at Makeastar.com for best original music.
I could win $10k and a spot on Fuse TV. The contest
end date is 1/26/09. Please click on the link below

In internet radio news, I was featured on a great
show called Radio Crystal Blue. There were some nice
words spoken about me, and a song played from my album
Life Is Sweeter… Here is an mp3 of the show.
Listen and enjoy. http://cblue.lunarpages.com/RCBnew010409.mp3
Stay tuned Cherries. I have some really good news
I will lay on you soon.
Cherry show tonight poseponed.
Happy New Year Cherries,
Wishing you the best in this New Year.
Now hear this! There will be no show Monday, January
5th at the Door lounge. This show was suppost to be
broadcasted live over the internet. Unfortunately,
their website is down. No website = no live internet
show. It will be poseponed for a bit. I’ll keep
you posted on when it’s rescheduled.
Home sweet home. 10 days straight on the road was
as fun as it was grueling. Life was sweeter when I
performed on New Years Eve into the New Year. I believe
that is the preference of every musician to play when
the ball drops. That’s exactly what I did on
the last night of the year / tour with Chubby Checker
in Durant Oklahoma. We performed 6 straight nights
in 5 cities in 2 states. What a blast. I wrote a story
while on the road called “A Christmas Tour Letter
from Jerry Cherry,” for Indie Sounds NY online.
Go to www.indiesoundny.com to see the story. Speaking
of Indie Sounds, I made their top 10 live highlights
of 08’. Check it out too and see who else made
Check this out! It’s real cool. It only takes
10 seconds to do and it will really help. I need you
to rate me on 101.9 RXP’s website. Go to www.1019rxp.com/Bands/ManhattanBands/View.aspx?ID=109480
and rate me from 1-10. This will catch the attention
of the musical supervisor at the station and get some
more Jerry Cherry airplay. That would be sweeter…
Oh, and another thing. My great friend / radio promoter
/ musician Gary Leftowith has a very cool new song
out. You have hear it. Check out Hi-Fi on Itunes.
The song is called She's My Girl- Single
Last but not least, Jerry Cherry tour dates:

will be playing
drums, Ricardo Rodrigues will be playing bass. Xue
and Fra now have
pickups on their instruments so you can actually hear
how amazing they
are on cello and violin. So sad Felipe can't make
this one, but very
happy to have another great drummer in Jamie. Ricardo
performing with us for the first time since the CD
release show at The
Bitter End. Very excited to have him play.
There will be an all-star jam session after Queen
V's set around
midnight or so. It will be a bunch of rockers playing
some of your
favorite hard rock songs, including yours truly, Me.
Rumor has it that
Brad Whitford from Aerosmith will be jamming too.
Don Hill's is located at 511 Greenwich St in Soho
NYC. Take A C E to
Spring St, or the 1 to Canal.

In other interesting news, I played guitar for the
one and only legendary Chubby Checker. We did a show
on Thursday, March 6th. It was amazing. Some songs
from the set included "Limbo Rock," "The
Twist," and his new hit single "Knock Down
The Walls." The man has an energy that is very
contagious. I look forward to doing it again.

many major radio stations across America. I'll update
you with stations in
your town so you can call in and make requests. Thanks
for tuning in. I wish you all the best in this upcoming
Till we meet again,
I'm performing at "The Scene" at The Delancey
tonight, Jan 8th, at 10:30. The address
is 168 Delancey St. (at Clinton) NYC. Just take the
F train to Delancey and
walk toward the Williamsburgh Bridge. I will be playing
an acoustic set with
special guest Xue Yung on Cello. Hope you can come
out. It's also David
Bowie's birthday. We need to celebrate. "The
Scene" is a really cool place
with a great vibe. It's quaint, candle lit and it
even has a fireplace. Come
and hang out. It's a great scene.
I'll meet you there. Ah ah ah.
I've received a few emails from friends/artist/bands
this New Year
thanking everybody for supporting them throughout
the year. They also
mentioned their achievements in '07 and things to
look forward to in '08. I
really enjoyed reading all of those emails, so now,
ripping them off, I will attempt to do the same exact
The year started off with me thinking that my album
that I started to record
one month earlier was on track for a May release.
Wow, that didnt happen. I
just knew I wanted to make a great record. It's not
that I wanted to take my
time with it, it's just that the craziest things transpired
in the process.
Producing an album was much harder than I thought.
The delay of the record
led to my getting out and performing more. I took
gigs in the strangest
places, like Spaghetti Western in Tribecca. That show
was actually really
fun if you were there to remember. In June I booked
my first CD release
show. Because the album wasn't finished, I had to
release a 6-song EP. Oh,
let's not forget the ice cream for all who came. As
the months rolled by and
"Life Is Sweeter..." seemed like it would
never be finished, I continued to
perform. I played at various clubs around NYC like
Arlene's Grocery, The
Delancey, The Lions Den, The Knitting Factory, The
Bitter End, Rockwood
Music Hall, Club Midway, and Snitch.
As you can see the year was moving along. While playing
these shows and
getting out there, I met some new friends and strengthened
friendships. All the Late Night at Rockwood shows
have been a treat for me.
Lauren Joniks has really helped me with her support
by writing articles
about me in Indie Sounds and snapping some great pics.
Pete Harris has
promoted and played my music on Harrisradio. Dawn
plays my music on Best
Hits Radio Tuesday mornings. Chris McMillen from Engine
interviewed me. Performing with and watching great
artists like Jamie Rae,
The Ramblers, The Rich Girls, and Dan Torres was always
a treat. I was
blessed to have an amazing band, also known as The
Plonkers. They are Felipe
Torres on Drums, Jamie Alegre and Ricardo Rodrigues
on Bass, David Smith on
Trumpet, Xue Yang Liu on Cello, Francesca Dardini
on Violin. Thank you guys
for bringing The Cherry to life. Big thanks to Mike
Rogers for making sure
my I made a great album with his amazing ears and
skills behind the mixing
board. Huge thanks to Scott Spooner for his Graphic
Design skills on the
record, website, flyers, and everything else. Everyone
at Engine Room Audio
for a great job helping me finish this record and
getting me the hell out of
Some other things that happened along the '07 journey:
a full CD release
party at The Bitter End; passing the first round of
Songwriting Contest; making it into the top 10 list
of 2007 by IndieSounds
Mag - a very prestigious list it is; Being filmed
for a TV show called
"Matched In Manhattan" on Lifetime Network;
and, finally, completing my
debut album "Life Is Sweeter..." which you
can purchace on my website and on
All in all, '07 was a productive year for Jerry Cherry.
Thanks to all my
friends, fans, and family for their support throughout
the year. Together we make it
happen. Now to completely rip off my friends/artists/bands'
emails: Here are
some things to look forward to in '08: More promotion,
radio play, live
shows. You'll think there are 6 of me. Oh, plus the
TV show I'm on called
"Matched in Manhattan" will air Friday,
Febuary 1st, at 9:30 on Lifetime.
Here's one more for you: I'm performing at "The
Scene" at The Delancey, 168
Delancey St. (at Clinton) this Tuesday, January 8th,
at 10:30. It will be an
acoustic set with with me and Xue Yung on Cello. Hope
you can come out.
Happy New Year everyone. I hope your year is filled
with Cherries and
everything that's Sweeter...
is a little treat for you. I have two unmastered songs
from my debut album up on www.myspace.com/jerrycherryband.
The album will be finished on May 9th. More songs
will be posted after that. I am happy to say that
after five long, cold monthes working on it, I am
finally finished. The album will be released at the
begining of June and there will be a show on June
6th. Have a little taste. I hope you like.
very excited to announce that My debut album will
be released in early May. Please check out my website,
and www.myspace.com/jerrycherryband in early April
for a preview of some on the songs from the album.
Also, get ready for a huge CD release show at the
end of May. Thank you very much for checking out the
I just wanted to let you know that my debut album
is coming along nicely and
is on schedule for May release. It sounds amazing
and I'm very proud of
it. I've put a lot of hard work into all the songs
so I hope you all really
enjoy this album when it comes out.
I have a Solo show this Saturday night, February 3rd,
at Spaghetti Western.
It's located at 59 Reade Street in TriBeCa, in between
Broadway and Church
Street. Showtime is 10 PM. I don't know much about
this place other than they've
been having music there for the past month. They want
to have a cool music
vibe that's good for musicians to perform without
the some plonker manager
making it hard for them. That sounds good to me.
Cherries... The London tour was amazing. Night after
night we roamed
the streets of London, performing at various venues,
kabob restaurants, and
wherever else we could play. One of the highlights
of the tour was being
asked to perform at "The Original Songwriters"
showcase at The Orange Club,
London's premier singer/songwriter showcase venue.
Thanks to Pam and Kristen
for the invite. A professional DVD of my performance
was made there. Look
for that on the website soon. The response from the
people in London was
amazing. Londoners have a very deep appreciation for
music. I felt very
welcomed. All of the shows were video taped and I've
posted a few clips in
the video section of my website for your viewing pleasure.
The videos are of
three new songs, so hear them here first. I also posted
some new pics from
the tour, plus really cool pics from a Dan Torres
show back in June. Check
out the Press section for some new stuff, for example,
a pic of a funny
surprise moment that occurred when I noticed an advertisement
for one of my
London shows as I was glancing through a magazine.
I start recording my first full length album on November
30th. It's being
recorded at The Engine Room Studios in China Town.
The record will be a good
mix of heavy mellow music. Wow! Did I just coin a
new phrase? I would love
for the album to be done by the end of the year but
you know how that goes.
January sounds more realistic.
Ok...(read this in your best Cockney accent): Go down
to the bottom, make a
right, go to the top. Get your meat, cook it up. I
I guess what I'm saying is, don't be a Plonker.
really cool news going on in the world of Jerry Cherry.
I will be
touring London starting Sunday, October 8th. Please
check out my website for
the dates. There are also some new videos from this
past Lit show, and some
new pictures from the past few shows that I've done
including Lit, and a few
Dan Torres shows. Please scroll down to see.
Stuff to look forward to: In London, some of the shows
will be recorded so
I'll be able to post some new songs performed live
for you all to hear. All
the shows will be video taped so you'll feel like
you were there with Jerry
Cherry. All this stuff will be on my website when
I return at the end of
On another note, in November I start recording my
first full length album.
It's taken my whole lifetime up to this point to write.
I really feel I
finally have all the songs I need to make a great
first record. Look for
that by Christmas.
Well, as they say in the mother country...
I have some very exciting events coming up. I have
a big show at Lit on
Tuesday, September 5th at 9:30 PM. The cool thing
about this night at Lit
besides Jerry Cherry's music(some old, mostly new)
is that there will be
FREE BEER from 9:30 to 10:30. You can drink all the
way through the show. We
will sound great by the end of the show, "I guarantee
it." Lit is located
right smack in the middle of the East Village at 93
2nd Ave (Btwn 5th and
6th St.). Julia from the Angelic Bombs/Dan Torres
Band is on drums, and
Ricardo from the Dan Torres band is on Bass. I'm so
excited I'm oozing with
Another cool thing is that I will be hosting an open
mic night at The Three
of Cups on Sunday 8-27. This is a one- shot deal.
My friend Drew who runs it
every Sunday will be in California and asked me to
fill in. For those of you
who don't know this, I hosted an open mic at The Satalite
Bar for almost a
year. I hope to see all of the great players and friends
that came during
that time. The show will run from 10 PM to 4 AM. First
come, first play, and
then play again. Fun, Fun, Fun for the whole family.
another cool thing is that I have some new shows with
Dan Torres. You
might not know this but when I play with Dan Torres
I go by the name Jerry
James. It's just part of my identify crisis. We have
a show at the Pussycat
Lounge located at 96 Greenwich (@ Rector) NYC on Tuesday,
September 22nd, at
9 PM. Then we have a CD release party at Crash Mansion
on September 27th.
That will be a blast.
Lots of cool stuff to tell ya about. First, let's
start out by announcing
the first Jerry Cherry show with a full band in New
York City, ever. Yes,
I'm very excited about it. On drums, the incredible
Tom Kozumplik, and on bass, the
astonishing Mr. Ricardo Rodriguez. The band is very
hot. The show is at
Rockwood Music Hall on Monday, May 15th at 9:30 PM.
The address is 196 Allen
St. New York City, Between E. Houston and Stanton.
Rockwood Music Hall is a
very small, intimate venue. 40 people and the place
is packed. I also want
to thank everybody for their positive feedback on
my last recordings of "Big
City Life," and "Worst Looking Man."
I will be performing some new songs at
the show that will be recorded very soon. Hear them
another note, I'm playing guitar with an incredible
singer named John
Anthony with a full band. John's music is very versatile.
His voice is like
Freddie Mercury... no kidding. Check out his website:
www.johnanthonymusic.com The show is at Kenny's Castaway
on Thursday, May
4th at 7 PM in the heart of Greenwich Village. The
address is 157 Bleeker
but not least, I'm really looking forward to this
show: I'm playing
with the amazing Dan Torres at Rockwood Music Hall
on Saturday, June 3rd, at
10:30 PM. Dan never ceases to amaze me. Hear for yourself.
www.myspace.com/dantorres This is the first show with
Dan in a while. There
will be many great bands there that night. Get there
you can see I've been a busy boy. See you at the shows...
This message is brought to you by the new & improved,
updated jerrycherry.com. You'll love it. You'll just
eat it up. What makes jerrycherry.com better you ask?
There are new photos taken by my friend -Mar-, some
new songs recorded right here in New York City, and

also playing tonight with Dan Torres. The show is
at Love Sexy's Rock & Roll Pub @ Blaggards located
at 8 West 38th St. NYC The show is Saturday, January
7th 9:30 pm. The show is a Buzz Band Search. Dans
music is a few notches different from mine but the
combination is extraordinary. Dans in the studio now
recording an album. Look for that real soon. You can
hear some of his stuff at www.myspace.com/dantorres
you at the show,
be shocked, but when I play guitar with Dan Torres,
singer/songwriter, I go by Jerry James, which was
my stage name when I
played guitar with the Nocturnals. It was a similar
sound and a similar role
for me, and it seems fitting.
have to come check out Dan's show - the songs are
(similar to Jeff Buckley and the band 'Ours,' I'd
say). The show is Tuesday
night at 10:30 PM at Rockwood Music Hall. 196 Allen
St. (Btwn East Housten
and Stanton), New York City, NY
is a full band show, amazing musicians all. I've been
spending a lot of
time working on these songs, and I'm very excited
about this show. I'd love
for you to come check us out.
early, there are two great female singers performing
before us. Heather Christian goes on at 8:30 and Paula
Valstein goes on at 9:30. Doors are at 8 pm. No cover.
Jerry James (Cherry)
sorry I haven't written in a while. There has been
some cool stuff going
on in Cherry Land. First of all, I've started on my
new recording. I
couldn't find a drummer to play on my record to save
my life, so I broke out
the drum machine to do it myself. Then, as soon as
I break out the machine,
I find an incredible drummer. Isn't that crazy? See
how that happens? His
name is Riley Sumala. You can also hear him "Bust
Cherry" on Tuesday nights because he is also
So you'll finally be able to hear my new songs. We
rehearsed the other day
and Riley makes the songs sound better than I could've
imagined. I'm very
excited about that. Another really cool development
is that I met an
incredible singer named Dan Torres at my "Bust
Your Cherry" night. I wound
up learning a few of Dan's songs and performed them
last Tuesday night at my
open mic. It was so much fun that Dan asked me to
perform a few more songs
with him this Wednesday night at The Sidewalk Cafe.
The show is Wednesday,
October 19th @ 9:30 PM. Actually more like 10, but
be there early. The
address is 94 Avenue A @ 6th St. Check out some of
his music at
As far as the past B.Y.C. Award winners who did not
yet receive their Jerry
Cherry shirts, I will be bringing them this Tuesday
night. OK, the moment
you've all been waiting for... The winner of the B.Y.C.
Award two weeks ago
is Julie Bellamy. Julie was amazing. She popped in
a cd of her music without
the vocals and jumped up on the Cherry Picker and
with her hip-hop style she
sang her sweet little butt off. Last week's B.Y.C.
Award goes to Ali
Lefevre. Ali's voice is so beautiful you melt with
every word she sings. She
came all the way from Louisiana to Bust Her Cherry.
You can hear Ali at
www.myspace.com/alilefevre. Congrats, Julie and Ali,
wear your J.C. shirts
Well, there you have it. I hope to see you at one
or both of the shows
coming up this week. Its getting cold in the city
so come on in and "Bust
Your Cherry," baby.
ya at the show,
Thank you for all of your responses in regards to
voting on which of my new
songs I should record. The songs you chose were great
choices and they will
be the ones I record. Thanks for your help. September
12th marks my one year
anniversary living here in New York City and what
a year it has been! The
best year of my life. They say it takes two years
here before it all comes
together. I'm looking forward to the next one. I came
here with a purpose,
to write great songs, put an amazing band together,
and "Bust My Cherry"
harder than anybody else. I want to thank everyone
who's inspired me, helped
me, and believed.
Now, enough of the cheeziness and let's get down to
business... The "B.Y.C."
award goes to Chuck L. Reina. Chuck used to come out
often when I first
started the Bust Your Cherry night, but he hasn't
been back for months. I
think he was in Austria. Anyway, last week he just
knocked my socks off.
Chuck, you rock, babe. Wear your Jerry Cherry shirt
Whether you've lived in New York all your life, for
one year like me, or are
here for only three days, "Bust Your Cherry"
while you're here. It only
takes a couple of minutes and you'll feel so much
better. I look forward to
seeing you at The Satelite Bar, located at 505 E.
6th St. Btwn (Aves A & B).
Show time is from 8:30 PM till 4 AM.
you there... Ah ah ah
Another Tuesday is upon us. Time for "Bust Your
Cherry" open mic night.
Tonight is going to be a very special open mic night.
Why? I don't know - I
just feel it. I guess I'm just hoping it will be.
When you're in the Cherry
Busting business, it's very inconsistent. Sometimes
you Bust Your Cherry,
sometimes you just oooozzze a little bit. Tonight
I'm going all out. All
I'm really excited. I found a drummer who is going
to record my new song
with me. All the new Jerry Cherry songs that you've
come to know and love
will be recorded for your listening pleasure. I'm
actually having a hard
time choosing the songs I want to record. That is
why I'm asking you. I want
to record 4 songs. Below is a list of the possible
choices. Your vote
matters. I'll add up the votes and record the 4 that
get the most votes.
Here is the list:
"I'm Not the Worst Looking Man You've Ever Seen,"
of the Beast,"
"One More Cry,"
"Take Your Clothes Off,"
"Life in the Big City,"
"Bust Your Cherry Open Mic Night."
Email me your decisions. I know the choices are tough;
that's why I need
your help. The songs will all eventually be recorded,
but for financial
reasons only 4 will be selected. Thank you.
The "Bust Your Cherry Award" goes to Sandra
Peterson. Sandra hasn't been
Busting her Cherry lately but she finally showed up
last week and tore up
the stage. It was great to see Sandra again. I ran
out of the Jerry Cherry
soda bottle shirts so the winners will be receiving
the Jerry Cherry Suit
shirts. Congrats, Sandra. Wear your shirt proudly.
Lakis, you can receive a
small suit shirt for winning two weeks ago. See, waiting
Well, I hope to see everybody tonight at the Satelite
Bar located at 505
East 6th St. (Btwn Aves A & B). The show starts
at 9PM and ends at 4 AM.
you there, Ah ah ah
Cherries. It's time for another night of "Bust
Your Cherry" open mic
night. Are you ready, baby? Yah baby, yah. I have
a new song I will be
performing tonight. It's called "Life in the
Big City." I wrote it last
Wednesday and decided to perform it Wednesday night
at the Satelite bar. I
was outside of the club practicing my new song, struggling
with the odd time
signature. The guys in the band The W.M.D'S wanted
to hear the song outside
because they had to leave. They put me on the spot
to play it outside for
them. I was a bit reluctant to play it since I was
struggling with it. I
played it anyway and they loved it and started singing
it with me. Then it
was my turn to perform inside. I set up a mic especially
for them and they
sang the chorus with me. It was awesome. I'm going
to record the song with
them. See how it works. That's "Life in the Big
Now, the moment you've all been waiting for: the "Bust
Your Cherry" award
winner... The award goes to Jeff Shine. Jeff hosts
the open mic at the
Satelite Bar every Wednesday night. He "Busts
his Cherry" every Tuesday but
last Tuesday he Busted it hard enough to win this
Congrats, Jeff. Wear your Jerry Cherry shirt proudly.
to the Satelite Bar, where dreams really do come true.
Just ask Jeff if
dreams come true. Jeff, do dreams come true? Yes,
dreams do come true. The
Satelite Bar is located at 505 E. 6th St. (Btwn Aves
A & B). The show starts
at 8:30 and ends at 4 AM.
you there, Ah ah ah
Cherries. Well, another "Bust Your Cherry"
open mic night approaches.
I'm very excited to perform tonight and to hear many
great artists. I love
cherries. I love the taste of them. The feel of them.
The shmell of them. I
love all the little cherries so much.
Last week's "Bust Your Cherry" award goes
to Lakis. What a great performance
he put on. Lakis is a truly talented performer and
a natural musician. His
songs are beautiful and his performance is magical.
He is electrifying every
time he takes the stage. Congrats, Lakis. Wear your
Jerry Cherry shirt
All my cherries from across the land come to New York
whenever they can.
They "Bust Their Cherries" all through the
night, and rock my world till the
morning light. Even if you can't be there, there'll
be no sadness or
despair. You'll always be a cherry, baby, yah baby
The show is at The Satelite Bar located at 505 East
6th St. (Btwn aves A &
B). Show time is from 8:30 PM till 4 AM.
Cherries. I'm just sitting here at Zanny's enjoying
a beautiful day
on the upper west side in New York City. The coffee
is good, but wait until
you taste what Jerry Cherry serves up for you. Life
is magical when "Bust
Your Cherry Open Mic Night" approaches. Yah baby,
yah. One thing incredible
to me is the fact that most of the people in New York
don't live here. Most
are wonderful people who live in other countries.
They come here for a short
period of time. They grace us with their presence.
They wow us with their
charm. They dance a dance for us that is simply spectacular.
They dazzle us
with their beauty. Isto e vida.
the moment you've all been waiting for... The "Bust
Your Cherry" award
winner. I have to say that Aria busted her cherry
enough to win this
prestigious award. She was so hot busting her cherries
to the audience. You
couldn't help but respond to her overflowing of cherry
busting. You can
check her out at her band's website http://www.apocalypstik.com/.
Aria. Wear your Jerry Cherry shirt proudly.
yourself musically, lyrically, physically, any way
you want to. Just
be comfortable and Bust Your Cherry, baby. La la la
la la la la la. la la la
la. la la. Come to the Satelite bar tonight. It's
located at 505 east 6th
street (btw A & B) NYC. The show is from 8:30
till 4 AM. Come early, come
late, just don't hesitate. The more you fidget, the
more you wait. The more
likely you'll be to stay home and masturbate.
Cherries. Oh wow - I'm very excited about Busting
My Cherry tonight.
As I'm writing this email I'm listening to the greatest
singer of all time,
Ella Fitzgerald. I loooveee her. I'd also love all
of you to come "Bust Your
Cherries" tonight. For the most part, the performers
and random singers and guitarists busting out on stage
to perform songs from
their favorite artists. We've also had spoken word,
rappers, and people who've lived in New York City
for just way too long.
Anything goes and is always welcome as long as you
"Bust Your Cherry," baby.
Last week's "Bust Your Cherry" award winner
was a tough one to pick. It was
very close, but the winner is Phil Common. Phil rocks
every Tuesday, but
last Tuesday it all came together for him and I think
he was just terrific.
Congrats, Phil. Wear your Jerry Cherry shirt proudly.
Who will be next to
sport the famous shirt?
performed Monday night at The Sidewalk Cafe on 6th
Street and A. I've
enjoyed some great performers there - they showcase
the best talent in New
York. Everyone I've seen perform there was just amazing.
It was sure nice
that I got the chance to spread a little Cherry lovin'
about the place.
Sometimes it gets real mellow and quiet in there.
That's good because the
audience really respects the dynamics of each performer.
Before I performed,
there was an artist who was real, real soft. Then
I jumped up on stage, and
let's just say that when I performed "Take Your
Clothes Off," with its sexy
lyrics and burning guitar riffs the audience was just
stunned. I "Bust My
Cherry" where ever I go. It's time for you to
do the same. I hope to see you
tonight. The show is at The Satelite Bar. It's located
at 505 E. 6th Street,
NYC (btwn Aves A & B). Da East Village.
See you there, Ah ah ah,
Well, here we are again: Another hot day in the big
apple, another hot
Tuesday night. Are you ready for "Bust Your Cherry
Open Mic Night?" Ya baby,
ya. My mom is here from Florida and she's ready to
"Bust Her Cherry." Mommy
Cherry. This open mic night is not like any other
open mic in New York City.
Everybody gets their turn to play. Especially if your
mom comes in from
Florida and wants to hear you.
Now, the moment you've all been waiting for. Last
week's "Bust Your Cherry"
award winner. It was a really hard decision. There
were so many great
performers, but I have to give the award to Andy Stack.
He was just amazing.
Whenever he comes in and plays, everyone is just mesmerized.
You can hear
his music on his website www.andystack.net. Congrats,
Andy. Wear your Jerry
Cherry shirt proudly. Debbie Dalton, Ivan, Jack Benjamin,
Jeff, and Phil all rocked hard. The baddest Mofos
in NYC come to "Bust Their
Cherry" every Tuesday.
Did anyone see Rockstar INXS last night? I actually
auditioned for that
show back in January at CBGB's. I auditioned in front
of INXS and got a
chance to meet them. They're really cool guys. I did
pretty good. I got two
call-backs and made it to the final 200 people. I
was pretty excited about
getting to the 50 final people to go to California.
But that never happened.
Oh well. It was hard to watch that show knowing that
I was so close. But I
have to say, Jerry Cherry is too sexy for that show.
I hope to see everybody tonight. The Satelite Bar
is located at 505 E. 6th
St. (Between Aves. A & B) The show starts at 8:30
PM and ends at 4 AM. Let's
have our own Rockstar show without the competition
and elimination. Just be
a rockstar. See you there. Ah ah ah.
Cherries! Happy 4th of July. I hope you had a great
view of the
fireworks and then made some of your own fireworks
later... Have you been
watching any of the Live 8 show? What a lineup! The
London stage, what can I
say? I almost died when I saw Coldplay back up Richard
Bittersweet Symphony. Pink Floyd reunited: Wow. A
great weekend of music.
The great thing is that it's not over. Here in New
York we have our own Live
8 stage: "Bust Your Cherry Open Mic Night."
Let's keep the beautiful music
Last week's "Bust Your Cherry" award goes
to Ivan. Wow, this guy is solid.
His voice is amazing. He's not average by any means.
When he performs, you
listen. Ivan and I performed a version of Jeff Buckley's
"Lilac Wine." It
was quite an experience. Thanks, Ivan. Wear your Jerry
Cherry shirt proudly.
Ivan was great, but there were many great performers
last week. It was
difficult picking a winner. Melissa was awesome as
well. She and her
girlfriends helped me perform my song "Take Your
Clothes Off." You really
can't go wrong with a song like that.
I look forward to seeing everybody tonight Busting
their Cherries. The
Satelite Bar is located at 505 East 6th Street. (Between
Aves A & B.) It
starts at around 9 PM and ends at 4 AM. Keep the music
my Cherries. Today is a weird day. I'm slowly trying
to get over the
fact that my guitar gig bag was stolen last night.
Thank God "My Black
Guitar" wasn't in it. I was performing upstairs
at The Sidewalk Cafe when my
bag was stolen from the downstairs area. Besides some
material things that
can easily be replaced, there were some very important
lyrics I had written
all through spring that can never be replaced. They
weren't songs yet and
now they will never be. At least not in that light.
I hope that whoever has
the bag and finds the lyrics doesn't wipe his stinkin'
ass with them.
week's "Bust Your Cherry" award goes out
to Skrit Steak & those English
Mufkins. They were so great. And weird... very weird.
I hope they come back
tonight and play some more and receive their prizes.
Wear those Jerry Cherry
show at Galapagos was awesome. There is an amazing
vibe at this venue. I
did lose my pants at the show. My famous pants with
one leg black and one
leg white was in a bag that I left on the subway train
on the way home. I
was talking to a girl and was so caught up in the
conversation that I did
what I said to myself I would do and left the bag
on the train. It has been
a time of losing things. My motto is "lose 1
thing and gain 10." It was
really cool to play in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The
music scene there is
cool. Thanks to Kevin from Mind Trip Productions for
giving me the gig.
Come "Bust Your Cherry" tonight at the Satelite
Bar. The address is 505 East
6th Street. (Between Aves A & B). The show starts
at 9 PM and ends at 4 AM.
I can't wait to see everyone tonight. Ya baby. Don't
steal anything from me. Please.
See you there. Ah ah ah ah
Cherries. Last week's "Bust Your Cherry"
open mic night was the best
one yet. The night started off with me being a little
late as usual and then
a short performance by yours truly. Then Nothing Rhymes
With Orange took the
stage and blew all of our minds. I really love those
guys. They set the tone
for a great night of music to follow. Belt was great.
Joe Holland rocked, as
usual. One guy who never ceases to amaze me, all the
way from Los Angeles,
my friend Gunner, who showed up in surprising fashion.
He invited me to jam
on a few of his songs. It was truly magical, as usual.
Gunner, you rock
babe. Nickolas, If you're reading this in France,
we miss you.
who performed last week was great and it was very
hard to pick the
"Bust Your Cherry" award winner. Envelope
please. The award goes to . . .
Booby Girl. I'm sorry I can't remember her name. The
girl with the big
boobs - you know who you are. Come and claim your
shirt. I'm sure it will
look great on you. Booby Girl was on fire last week.
I have a new song
called "Take Your Clothes Off." There's
always going to be someone there to
do just that. Booby Girl, congrats. Wear your prize
proudly. Oh ya, did I
mention she had an amazing voice?
Finally, I have a show at "Galapagos" in
Brooklyn this Saturday at 9:15 PM.

It's that time of the week again, time to "Bust
Your Cherry." Some of my
friends from South Florida are going to be busting
their cherries for the
first time tonight. They're in a band called Nothing
Rhymes With Orange.
They're really great. They have their own sound, a
very space-rock, Brit-pop
sound like The Verve, Cold Play, or U2. I jammed with
them once at a club
called Dada in Delray Beach, Florida and performed
a song called "Sonnet" by
The Verve. Lets see what happens tonight.
very excited about tonight. I have a few new songs
I'll be performing.
One of them is really hot and you might want to take
your clothes off after
hearing it. It's been very hot in New York lately.
week's "Bust Your Cherry" award goes to
the one and only Allegra. She
was fantastic on that stage, just singing her big
cherry out. Congrats,
Allegra. Wear your Jerry Cherry shirt proudly.
Cherries weren't the only thing busted last week.
While I was announcing the
next song I was going to perform, my roommate Nicholas
was so excited to
come up on stage to perform it with me that he ran
into the mic stand and
the mic whacked me in the mouth, almost knocking my
teeth out. Fortunately,
the only thing that happened was a bloody lip. But
the good thing is that
the blood was red, much like the cherries that will
be busted tonight at the
Satelite Bar. Tonight will also be a going away party
for Nicholas. He's going back to France in a few days.
He will be missed. The Satelite bar is located at
505 East 6th St. (between Ave's
A & B). The show starts around 9 PM and ends at
See you there, Ah ah ah
How are you? It's been a week since I've heard from
you last. The night is
slowly approaching. I usually wait till about 5 PM
the night of the show to
remind you about our weekly love-in. Today was a beautiful
Spring day and by
no means wasted. I was at Great Lawn in Central Park
going through some new
songs I'll be playing tonight. Today marks a new day
and a new spirit in the
Jerry Cherry ambience. "Busting More Cherries."
Can you feel the excitement?
I'm exuding red, like a burst of fruit flavor.
Now I'm going to announce the winner of the first
weekly "Bust Your Cherry
Awards." There were so many standouts the first
week that this was a very
hard decision. But the winner is Joe Holland. Only
because his name is
Holland and I love gold. I love the feel of it, the
taste of it, the shmell
of it. But most of all, the sound of it. Congrats,
Joe. You're the first
weekly winner. Enjoy your Jerry Cherry shirt. You
can all take a look at
them at www.jerrycherry.com

want to thank everyone for coming out to "Bust
Your Cherry Open Mic
Night." I have to apologize for showing up cherryably
late. By the time I
got there at 9pm there were already a bunch of cherries
waiting to be
busted. Thanks to Ziggy for starting the list and
getting it going. Things
don't always work out as planned at this open mic
night. We can go from
playing 4 songs to playing 2 songs per artist. That's
just the way the
night works. As it progresses, more and more people
show up wanting to bust
their cherries. The thing is to be patient and relax,
take it easy, and
enjoy your life. There is so much talent coming into
this place, I don't
need to play, but I do. As a matter or fact, I am
really looking forward to
the duet I'll be doing with Jody, who just moved here
from California to
bust her cherry. Last week was great . . . so many
I have to say that the highlight of the night was
Sandra Peterson, who
played her butt off.

Last week Johnny B and Scrappy Calloway fom the band
Goodfinger rocked us
hard. Phil blew us away with his killer tunes. Sandra
rocked Simon And
Garfunkel, with a little help from J.C.
coolest thing is that while Nick and I were performing
together, his girlfreind was so impressed that they
got engaged after the
show. Wow, now that's love. Tim the bartender just
happened to have a ring
behind the bar. Anything is possible when you're Busting
Your Cherry. So if
you're in the mood to bring your band and try out
some new songs or imitate

and "Tokyo Girl." I will also be welcoming
Jamie Ray, a special guest singer
to perform with me. She will be singing my song "Backward."
I will also be
playing guitar on her song "Any Other Way."
She is an amazing singer. I
look forward to it. Last week we had some amazing
performers. Wow, what a
night. The crew from the Three of Cups came to Bust
their Cherries. There is
an open mic there every Sunday night. It is on 1st
Avenue and 5th Street. It
starts late at about 11:30 PM. Check that out. Freddie
Z was amazing. (Sorry
I missed your show at Kenny's Castaway). I was U.S.F.L.A.
Ask David Johanson
what that means. He told me. Jeff Shine was also great
and Sam's slide work
on Sleep Walk was once again brilliant. It's a beautiful
day here in
Manhattan. It's spring. The clothes are coming off
and music is going on.

The show at Dada was a smash. The place was packed
and the crowd had the time of their lives. I might
have overplayed my guitar solos a little bit, but
who cares? Dada is so cool. The people there just
want to have a good time and hear great music, and
they got what they came for. At the end of the night
we called Scott Spooner of Wednesday's Child and Erica

Jerry Cherry tonight, 11 pm at Dada in Delray Bch.
here for the Dada E-flier
evening, Cherry lovers. The Rock for Autism show was
great. Erica Sommer from E.S.P, Rambler, Wednesday's
Child, The Last Crusader, & Jerry Cherry and the
Revolution all put on the shows of their lives to
raise money for the fight against Autism. We were
all very proud to be a part of it. There is a tentative
date in July for the next show. I will keep you posted
On with the show... We will be performing at Dada
this Saturday night, June 19th, from 11 PM till 12:30
AM. If you haven't seen Jerry Cherry and the Revolution,
now's the time to check it out. We will be ending
our set with an explosion of 80s pop songs that will
make you reminisce about a time when music was fun.
Come shake your ass with Jerry Cherry and the Revolution.
It will be Cherrylicious.
Dada is such a fantastic place. Every band that plays
there is amazing. You can hang inside and go crazy
with the band or you can enjoy yourself outside and
dance under the stars. Either way, come early and
stay late. Dada is located in Delray Bch. Exit off
I-95 onto Atlantic Avenue, East to Swinton. Make a
left on Swinton and Dada is on the left at the first
light. There is plenty of parking across the street

wait to see you there. God bless always.
Cherry here, wanting to thank everybody for coming
out to Broadway's 80's night Friday night. It was
an amazing show. Everyone was there: Madonna, Axel
Rose, that chick from Flashdance... I thought I saw
Boy George... Maybe not. We called the band "Jerry
Cherry and the Revolution," because we had two
special guests, Scott Spooner (keyboardist from the
band Wednesdays Child), and Erica Sommer, (vocalist
from the band E.S.P). If you missed it, you missed
a doozy. The place was packed with people sporting
their favorite 80's attire. When we took the stage,
the crowd went nuts as we launched into a set of classic
80's songs. It's too bad we only played for 30 minutes;
it was over way too soon. The music in the 80's was
all about fun. "Wang Chung." Need I say
more? To see video and pictures of that memorable
night, scroll down to the PICS and VIDEO sections.
You'll love the songs we chose to play. Hint: we played
2 songs from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."
next show is Popscene at Dada in Delray Beach, on
Saturday, June 19th, at 10 PM.
you missed the 80's show, don't fret. For the last part
of the Dada show we're going to have The Revolution
back for an encore presentation. Dada is an amazing
place. Check out their website at http://www.respectablestreet.com/dada.htm
We have three hours to kill. Bathroom breaks permitted.
Cherry Babies & Dudes. Thank you for going to
the Jerry Cherry show at
Broadway. You rawk, man. Dead To The World and Fractal
both kicked major ass
and I look forward to partying with those dudes again
like sometime really
here is something that is sure to be a major rad event:
Friday, May 21st, Broadway Billiards presents Prom
Night '04. Presenting..."A Blast From The Past"
80's Retro Prom Night & Carmen's birthday bash.
Carmen is the really cool foxy honey baby who books
all the bands at Broadway. Activities will include
Prom King and Queen, 80's movies, photo booth, spiked
punch bowl, celebrity look-a-likes, and killer local
bands playing 80's tunes. Nice, dude...nice. There
will be a strict dress code: No shirts, no shoes,
no dice. School/prom attire, 80's wear (punk, new
wave, surfer, tuxedo T's) encouraged. Total Ridgemont
High... Wow, that's cool.
my scull, I'm so wasted." Put on your checker
Vans and come early. Lots of stuff happening. "Like,
wow, man." I was thinking Mr. Hand. How about
learning about Cuba and rockin' with Jerry Cherry?
Cherries. I have a little treat for you. New pictures
from the last two shows at Dada and Rose & Crown
are up on www.jerrycherry.com. The show at Rose &
Crown was very strange. Just knowing that there was
a swingers club across the street made it all the
weirder. After the show I couldn't resist any more
so I had to go over there and see what all the fuss
was about. Unfortunately they wouldn't let me in.
It was couples night.
Boo hoo hoo. To bad for them, baby.
we go again, rocking Broadway in Aventura, Friday,
April 30th, at 11 PM. Broadway is freakin' awesome.
The sound system there is bad to the bone, and the
vibe is as cool as Arthur Fonzarelli... Heeyyyyyy.
There are three other cool bands performing with us
that night. Dead to the World at 9 PM, Prime Rib at
10 PM, Jerry Cherry at 11 PM, and Fractal at 12 midnight.
We're going to blow this place up - I'm sure of it.
Thank you for coming to see Jerry Cherry at Dada.
Dada is such a beautiful place. Everybody there was
so delicious. The show was terrific. People were just
finishing dinner when J.C. started to play. "A
little Jerry Cherry with your coffee, Sir?" By
the way, my name is Jamesula. I am the booking agent
for Jerry Cherry. I am up late in the night booking
shows and writing emails for my good friends while
they are busy making tasty music. There was a plan
going into Sunday's performance, but as usual, plans
change. The band planned to do an acoustic set, but
that morphed into a full-blown performance of "Waiting
on a Friend," and "Honky Tonk Women,"
by the Rolling Stones. The band even went so far as
to do Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused."
I didn't know Jerry could do Plant. Turns out that
he can't. Ah ha ha. It was great hearing some of the
Jerry Cherry faithful singing along word for word
with the songs. That's
what it's all about. I felt so
fuzzy. Basically they blew the roof off the place,
but it can be fixed.
to the next show... Jerry Cherry will be performing
at The Rose and Crown in Fort Lauderdale this Saturday,
April 17th, at 12 midnight. They were originally scheduled
for 9pm but that changed to 12. This show is called
Localpaloosa. It is being presented by our friends
from the band Caveat
Emptor and many great local bands will be performing
on two stages. The show starts early & ends late.
Listen to me - come to the show. I'll meet you there.
Ah ah ah ah ah.
Hello Cherrylicious people-
First of all, pick up a copy of the April 8th issue
of New Times Broward/Palm Beach. There's a great story
in there about Jerry Cherry. Jason Budjinski writes
an excellent piece about how the band has transformed
from a heavy Zeta sound to a more indie, low-fi sound.
Its a good read.
on with the show. Come hang out with us on April 11th,
Easter Sunday night. We will be performing at Dada
in Delray from 10:30pm till 1:30. Wow, I'm tired all
ready. No... it will be very interesting to see how
all of our songs go over considering we changed the
vibe of most of them. We'll have more acoustic guitars,
congas, bongos, and other perc toys that even Gloria
Estefan would approve of. This idea came about at
first because I thought that Dada was more of a laid-back
club. But after seeing some hard-rockin' bands there,
it turns out we could have blown the roof off the
place. But there's no turning back now. We're going
to keep the approach originally
conceived and play it by ear like we always do. Sorry
to disappoint you but I won't be wearing my skivvies
this show. Maybe under my tutu. Hahaha.
start recording next week. We will be at The Farm
Studios where Larry will be starting to get the sounds
that will become the first full length Jerry Cherry
album. The guts of the album will be recorded at our
own JC Studios. Our time, our way . . . the Cherry
have two more shows in April after the Dada show.
Go to www.jerrycherry.com for all that groovy stuff.
In the scholarly and profound words of bad-ass bass
and Chicken Grease. Good night cha-cha-cha-cherries.
can I say? The show Saturday night at The Surf was
great. It started off with us performing some of our
newest songs for which we got a very good reception.
Towards the end of the set, a man from the audience
asked if I was going to take off the trench coat.
"Good question," I said. But the real question
was from me to the ladies: "Ladies, do you want
me to take off the trench coat?" As the coat
started to come off slowly, that same guy screamed
out "Mick Jagger!" Thanks man. All and all
it was a fun show. There were many great bands. Many
of them were from the West Palm Beach area, attracting
many new faces to the Surf crowd. Some were on tour
from New York, and Conn. Sideplane was awesome. 2SDW!!
was great. 5 Skin. All great bands.
for something completely different. Our next gig will
be something very unique. We are performing at Dada
in Delray Beach on Sunday, April 11th, from 10:30
PM to 1:30. http://www.respectablestreet.com/dada.htm.
Yes, it will be a long show. There will be a few breaks
but for the most we will be playing slightly different
versions of our songs, some of our favorite covers,
new tunes, and an acoustic set. It will be a nice
treat for those of you who want to get down to the
pit of Jerry Cherry's music. Dada is a beautiful place.
It's a house built many decades ago turned into really
cool hangout place where musicians, artists, hipsters,
and anybody who appreciates creativity can come and
feel at home.
you all for coming to the shows. We love the reception
from everyone and we look forward to seeing you all
guys. Let me introduce myself.... my name is Star
Atmiaz. I am the photographer for Jerry Cherry. I
just finished a photo shoot with Jerry and let's just
say that I got some hot pictures. They'll be used
primarily for promotional purposes for the upcoming
Jerry Cherry show at The Surf Cafe, in Boca, Saturday,
March 20th, at 9:PM. I wasn't too sure about releasing
these pics but
Jerry is. Whatever floats his cherries. He says he'll
be wearing this at the show... crazy, but sexy. Its
kind of like what he wore at the Culture Room but.....OOPS
I almost gave it away. This show will be hot. Amp-Fest
2004 features over 20 great bands performing for two
nights, March 19th and 20th. Some of my favorite bands
will be there including Spork, 5 Skin, 2SDW.
Cherry will be in da house introducing the new "Turbo
Cherry Funnel." This device is something that
Ronnie created, and just like Ronnie, it can please
4 people at the same time. Say ahhhhh.
Cherry is currently recording 4 songs at the band's
new home studio called JC Studios. The songs "My
Black Guitar," "Just a Song," "Why
Does My Heart Hurt," and "Backwards"
are crowd favorites and very much anticipated. Look
for it to be finished in April.
I cant wait to see you at the show. Who knows, maybe
I'll shoot a picture of you in a compromising position.
Until next time, good night Cherries.
now....The moment you've all been waiting for.... Not
one, but two videos from The Culture Room show Friday,
Febuary 13th. It was so good that in order to get the
full effect, you must see two different parts of the
show. Make sure to check them both out. Let me warn
you, that although it is not rated X, it isn't for the
faint of heart. Scroll down to the video section of
www.jerrycherry.com, kick back and enjoy.
The Culture Room show Friday night was a mind-bending
experience. I want to thank all the Cherries who came
out to the show. When you go out on stage in a trench
coat with nothing underneath but women's leopard panties,
you get a feeling of power. Not to mention the feeling
of nylon creeping up your butt. Our 35 minute set
had the Culture Room crowd with their jaws on the
ground and their minds wondering what was going to
happen next. For most of the set my trench coat would
open slightly so that the people could barely see
what was going on underneath. By the last song, the
heat made it impossible to keep the coat on. I performed
our last song "Date Rape" in nothing but
my little leopard panties. While playing my soul-screeching
solos, I would roll around on the ground making love
to the stage. Troy from Aggitated Pearl, who
also performed that night, said "I love your
pants." I said "What pants?" He said
"Exactly." Doobie from the Mary Tyler Whores,
who by the way owes me a Whores shirt, said that I
was like Iggy Pop on Zanex. Even caught the piercing
eyes of the original Mr. Cherry, Josh Todd of Buck
Cherry, when I was lying on my merch table in my panties
attracting attention at the same time he and his band
were selling merch after their show. People will not
soon forget that Friday the 13th. Jerry Cherry - a
true rock and roll band... busting out...& I mean
busting out. Those panties were small. Check out www.jerrycherry.com.
In a few days there will be video footage and pictures
from that incredible "Night of Cherries."
next show is Amp Fest 04 at The Surf Cafe in Boca
on Saturday, March 20th, at 9:10pm. Two stages, 12
hours of South Florida's finest. Be there... in your
my little Cherries.
Jerry here, saying thank you to everybody who came
to Club M on Friday. It was the most fun we've had
in a while. We did three encores. The first encore
was a song called "Love Signs" which you
can hear at www.jerrycherry.com. Halfway through the
song, I noticed the face of singer/guitarist Blackie
Wayne from B.W.I. The look on his face said, "What
the hell are they playing? Who are they, Mudvayne
or John Denver?" That was the end of that song.
We then went into "Corporation Man," another
song you can hear on the website. That's when all
hell broke loose. While I was on the drum riser, my
guitar's tuning peg got tangled with this crazy plant
sitting on a shelf next to the riser. As I yanked
my guitar while jumping off the riser, the whole planter
came down with me. The dust and dirt from the planter
smashing down on the drum monitor was intense. Pieces
of pottery, stems, leaves and soil, crashed though
the air in a fury of unstoppable force. That led to
the last encore titled, "Plant Killer."
Use your imagination. Anyhoo...The night was good.
No one got hurt . . . except the plant.
you haven't seen Jerry Cherry before, get ready. This
next show at The Culture Room on Fri, 2-13, at 9:50,
will push Jerry Cherry into a whole new realm. You've
never seen anything like what's about to take place.
Well, you might have seen it once in 1980 if you're
old enough or watch VH1. My mind is almost gone. Please
help me lose it completely.
I would like to announce that you can now order cool
Jerry Cherry band merchandise at www.jerrycherry.com.
My name is Phil Mipokits. I am the merchandise coordinator
for Jerry Cherry. It's my sole mission and responsibility
that everyone owns a Jerry Cherry shirt, CD, etc.
If you don't look good, we don't look good. Don't
get stuck with sour grapes. Order directly from the
Cherry Store while they're ripe.
can check out Jerry Cherry in Hollyweird at Club M,
Friday, 2-6, at Midnight. And please don't forget
to mark your calendars for Friday, 2-13, at 9:50,
at The Culture Room for a special "Night of Cherries"
featuring Jerry Cherry and Buck Cherry.
behalf of Jerry Cherry, and W.R.M, I want to thank
everyone for being a part of the Jerry Cherry experience.
you at the shows.
Just yesterday we got the call to perform at The Surf
Cafe in Boca tonight, Friday night, 1-23rd, at 11:45.
Wednesday's Child was scheduled to perform but due
to an illness they had to cancel so they threw the
ball to Jerry Cherry. Up after Jerry Cherry is a band
called The Remnants who rock really hard. They're
like The Pretenders, Zep, Dolls. Very excited to play
with them. Tonight we'll bring back a bit of the past.
Our former bassist DT will be laying down the low
end for tonight's show as well as for the Buck Cherry
show on February 13th at The Culture Room. Don't worry,
Vewiser is still alive and kicking. V will be doing
the Club M show on February 6th, and then will be
back with us in March on a regular basis as the regular
bassist. Wow, I cant get Paul Weller's 'Days of Speed'
CD out of my player. So good. Anyhoo...See you tonight.
Jerry here, telling you it's time once again to put
on your makeup and meet us at the place you like to
go. That place is The Surf Cafe in Boca, Saturday,
January 10th, at 12:30. This show is also my birthday
celebration, which isn't till the 28th but why wait
to party? That's right, I'm a little bit older and
a lot more bolder than I used to be. We share the
stage with The Tommy Dalton Band, and Aggitated Pearl.
Come early . . . just come, cherry babies.
have some other shows coming up in February: Hollywood
gets Cherry bombed at Club M, Friday, February 6th,
time T.B.A. Then on Friday the
13th, The Culture room presents "A Night of Cherries."
Jerry Cherry warms up the stage for Buck Cherry. That's
right, Buck Cherry, my long lost brother. The Culture
Room is a big show for us because they finally let
us in there after begging for 6 months. Wait, Jerry
Cherry begs no one. Well, maybe a few times. Like
that girl from the concert, or that time at the circus.
Enough about that. Scroll down to the video section.
There is a concert clip of us doing the Zombie from
"The End of Your Crack Party" from last
month. Well, this concludes our broadcast for this
evening. Until next time . . . Cheerio
. . .
is Walter Rego. You remember me - Jerry Cherry's Manager.
There are two new songs on the site and I gotta tell
you, these songs came out great. The remake of the
Jim Croce classic "Time in a Bottle" and
the pretty sappy love song "You" both make
me tingly all over. You know... these kids in Jerry
Cherry are something else. I'm listening to the cd
now. It rocks so hard. Their song "You"
has tears running down my face. Oh...that's the onions.
I also love to cook. Listen...I've got to go. Check
out the tunes. Check out the band Saturday, January
10th, 12:30 at The Surf Cafe in Boca. Untill next
time, this is Uncle Walt wishing you Happy Holidays.
was pretty damn cool that everyone came out.
It was pretty damn cool there is no doubt.
It was pretty damn cool because the show was so phatt.
It was pretty damn cool I love you, you know that.
It was pretty damn cool we caught that psycho from
It was pretty damn cool to see the Muppets on Crack.
Looky looky here. Listen up. Check this out. Yo. I
got something to say. The Broadway show was really
really cool Friday night. The highlight of the show
was when we performed The Muppets' classic "Do
the Zombie." Usually when the Muppets perform
that song, I do the Zombie dance and look like a complete
lunatic freak. Friday night the tables were turned.
We ended our set performing the hit Muppets tune.
The Muppets got to see and hear their song performed
right in front of them. They were doing that crazy
dance beautifully. I was so proud of them. Especially
when bad-ass singer/bassist Robie jumped up on stage
like a lunatic. It was a great night. Our next show
is at The Surf Cafe on Saturday, January 10th at 12:30.
We will be performing with Tommy Dalton and Aggitated
Pearl. Shanyn, former drummer from The Muppets on
Crack is now drumming for Aggitated Pearl. Life goes
on. Tommy Dalton is a really good band with great
songs and we look forward to this show. Video footage
from the last show will be up in a few days. Good
luck. Enjoy your life. You only have one . . . I think.
Cherries: We interrupt this broadcast to bring you
a special message from Miami-Dade Mayor Alex Penellas.
Jerry Cherry invades Miami. Not since Crockett and
Tubbs departed from Miami Vice has Miami had such
electrifying hometown figures. Jerry Cherry will be
performing at Broadway in Aventura on Friday, December
12th, at 11:PM. This will be a very special night.
In case you didn't know, one of South Florida's favorite
bands, The Muppets on Crack are breaking up. J.C.
decided to throw a party for the Muppets, "The
End of Your Crack Party." We hope that Ernie,
Bert, and all of the rest of the clan show up to give
them a bigtime sign-off party Jerry-Cherry-style.
We'll be doing the Zombie all night long! Wait! Don't
go and pawn your VCRs just yet. There's more... Jerry
Cherry will be performing in South Beach at 623 Live
on Saturday, December 20th at 1 AM. You think that's
late but remember, it's South Beach. On another note:
www.jerrycherry.com will be having an overhaul. That
means the pictures, videos, mp3s, and whatever else
on there that you like should be saved. We're making
room for some cool new stuff to blow at you. O.K.
I have to sign off now. I have work to do. Running
a city is fun when you're listening to Jerry Cherry.
Yah baby yah.

This message has been brought to you by jerry cherry.
Just one taste and you'll be hooked. And by jerry
cherry fruit gum. Keep chewing, the flavor last forever.
peeps. Jerry here wanting to thank everybody for coming
to The Factory show on November 14th. We also want
to thank the people who tried to come but couldn’t
find the place. It was an amazing show. The d.j. spun
The Who’s Overture from their album Tommy right
before we went on. It put The Factory in a mood not
seen very often and would’ve made Pete Townsend
and the boys feel quite at home. The show went great.
Only one person told me after the show that I couldn’t
sing. That opinion is shrinking dramatically. What
a difference between the June Factory show and the
Nov. 14th show. “Jerry Cherry has evolved from
regular-guy rock dudes to emo-glam-punk rockers with
sophisticated mainstream modern rock sensibility.”
Sun Sentinal. Its all good. Now for our next show:
We will be performing at The Surf Cafe in Boca on
Friday, November 28th at 12:30. The Surf has become
our home-sweet-home. We love it there. I think Prince
said it best when he said “if you're in a band
playing in clubs, find a place and call it home.”
Good point. He also wore womens' panties. We agree
with Prince. Oh, Spork will be playing with us that
night as well. Just like always, the whole family
will be there. Have a happy gobble-gobble day. See
you at the show.
Hello cherry lovers. Jerry here giving you an early
heads-up for our next show at The Factory in Ft. Lauderdale
Friday 11-14, at 9:45pm. We’re really excited
about this show because we’ll have cd’s
and T-shirts available. We finished recording our
version of the Jim Croce classic “Time in a
Bottle,” along with another live favorite, “You”.
We also have two different kinds of shirts available,
& both of them are funny and sure to please. If
you're tall, short, fat, or skinny, There’s
something for you. Cool merch for the whole family.
We haven’t performed at The Factory since June
21st of this year. Many incredible things have happened
since then in the Jerry Cherry universe. Jerry Cherry
has broadened his horizons, taken on a more international
flavor, tasted the fruit of the old continent....
reminded of Shakespeare:
have given suck, and know
How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me:
I would, while it was smiling in my face,
Have pluck'd my nipple from his boneless gums,
And dash'd the brains out, had I so sworn as you
Have done to this."
that ambitious wife of the tragic Danish prince....
have been playing all these other places like The
Surf Cafe, Broadway, and Churchill’s for a while
now. Lets bring the party to The Factory. Our boys
M.O.C.(Muppets on Crack) will be there as well. We’ll
be doing the Zombie, that’s for sure. We are
also performing at The Surf on Fri, 11-28, at 12:30.
That show was originally on the 29th but was moved
back a day. Look out for some website updates this
weekend. www.jerrycherry.com. There will be pictures
and video footage from the last 3 shows that were
amazing to say the least. Please call and request
Jerry Cherry at WNSU Power X radio at 954-262-8460,
and Zeta goes local: 1-866-949-rock. Remember, Jerry
Cherry loves you. All of you. Good night and have
a pleasant tomorrow.
The show at The Surf was amazing. It started off with
me almost breaking my left hand on the ceiling fan
which is about 12’ off the ground. The Muppets
on Crack were playing my favorite tune of theirs “Do
the Zombie” when this almost tragic event took
place. Spork was great as usual. I don’t think
they stopped drinking since the Radiohead show last
week were we did an acoustic gig on the hood of my
car in the parking lot. We played all the Radiohead
songs the band didn’t play that night. Back
to the Surf. When it was time for us to play I had
know idea that this show would be the one to compare
every show in the future to. Everything that could
go right did. Not to say that every show until that
point wasn’t good, it’s just that this
one was mind altering. Someone from the audience asked
me if bassist Veweiser was the Devil and if the hat
he was wearing was keeping his horns down. Quite possible.
Ronnie’s drumming was fiery and intense pounding
out beats tune
after tune keeping the jerry Cherry rock car racing
down the track. For me it was just one of those performances
that you dream about hoping for it to come true and
it does. It was a lot of fun and I’m glad everyone
was there to enjoy it. Our next show is at The Surf
Cafe on Saturday, October 25th, at 7:30pm. We’re
also returning to Ft. Lauderdale to play The Factory
on Friday, November 14th, at 9:45pm. The Factory show
will be big because we will finally have cd’s
and shirts. Be the first kid on your block to sport
a jerry cherry shirt. Well, That’s all folks.
Until next time. Gooooood night from Cherry Tree Road.
fellow cherries. The Jerry Cherry show on the 27th at
The Surf was the most fun I've had in a while. I'm sorry,
let me introduce myself. My name is Walter Rego. I'm
Jerry Cherry's personal manager. I help make all the
tough decisions for the band. I was asked to write this
letter to you because the band is very busy working
to finish their album. Although they would like to thank
you personally, they trust me with all matters that
concern the band and their public persona. Let me just
say that when J.C. took the stage that night I was blown
away. You have to realize I've known these guys a long
time. I always knew they were talented, but they just
never cease to amaze me. I mean, even though Jerry didn't
sport his designer suit and because of that might have
left a few people disappointed, he did wear a black
and white hat keeping in the true Jerry Cherry style.
To see people in the audience singing along with all
the songs and seeing how far the band has come in such
a short time makes me so proud to be part of the Jerry
Cherry family. The show was really great, but as in
all rock and roll concerts, the real fun began after
the show. Deepset put on a kick ass show. Spork, let
me just say that besides J.C, Spork is my favorite South
Florida band. They rock. Look people, I'm not here trying
to blow smoke up anybody's skirt or anything. I just
wanted to say that life is like a bowl of Jerry Cherries.
Come hang out with me, Walt, at the next J.C. show on
Friday 10-10-03 at 12:30 at The Surf Cafe. I promise
you that with The Muppets on Crack and Spork also playing
that night, It will be a night of cherry popping goodness.
kids. It's cherry season again and Jerry Cherry is about
to perform at The Surf Cafe in Boca on Saturday 9-27-03
at 10:30pm. When it comes to taste and appearance, you
can't beat Jerry Cherry. 'Oh God' is right. Even the
Pope loves the luscious red color and tangy taste of
Jerry Cherry. In fact, let's hear what the Pope said
about Jerry Cherry: "Jerry Cherry is the reason
I'm still wearing this robe." Wow, you heard it
here first. Now for something completely different...
Jerry Cherry is currently recording their second album,
called Adventureland. Why that title? Why not? We're
recording it at the beautiful brand new Red Room Studios.
Tune into 88.5 Power X on Friday 9-26-03 between 7:30
and 8:30 for the Jenocyde show to hear the new Jerry
Cherry song and the band in the studio plugging it.
Our part of the show will only be about 10 minutes,
so don't miss it. We're also in the process of making
shirts so everyone can spread the seeds and make Jerry
Cherry a household name. Scroll down to the video section
and check out some new pics and video footage from our
last couple of shows at The Surf and Churchill's. The
Surf show was really crazy. J.C, Spork, and The Muppets
on Crack left it all on the stage. The Churchill's show
was also crazy. Laramie Dean was fantastic. His surf-style
guitar playing was flawless and inspiring. Let's make
this show on the 27th a night to remember. Like my old
friend Kev used to say, "Stephanie Seymour forever."
here, announcing that everything is great at Camp Jerry
Cherry. We are ready to tear the playhouse down at The
Surf Cafe in Boca this Saturday night, August 30th,
at 10:30pm. There are two other bands playing with us
that night: Spork and Muppets on Crack. It's sure to
be a night of mayhem and madness. Those of you who saw
our last show at Broadway heard us perform our new cover
song, a cool remake if I do say so myself, but everyone
else will have to come out to find out what it is. Everyone
will be able to hear the recorded version soon, however,
as we are finishing up our 2nd CD, currently titled
"Adventure Land." On another interesting note,
you can see the shoes of many interesting people (including
myself) at www.rawkshoes.com. You'll get a kick out
of it. Check out www.jerrycherry.com for cherrylicious
merchandise, coming soon. You'll be able to order our
new CD, shirts, and plenty more cool stuff in different
shapes and fruity colors. This is Jerry Cherry saying,
"that's all for now," and signing off from
Cherry Tree Road.
Thank you and good night.
in Miami.... What can I say? We might as well have
been on 44th and Broadway in New York City. It was
like Phantom of the Opera meets The Magical Mystery
Tour. It started out with Trash calling Jerry Cherry
on to the stage to end his set with a cover of "Jane
Says" by Jane's Addiction. Trash & Jerry
Cherry lit up the stage with an electrifying performance.
Jerry Cherry then exploded right into their set, and
once again ventured further into Vamp-ville, with
extended jammed out versions of many crowd favorite
Just how far can Jerry Cherry stretch the band's imagination
to get to the core of the emotion of their songs?
Inquiring minds want to know. In the process
Jerry felt the rockin' vibe of the room and decided
to forego the softer acoustic song "You"
for a change, instead making the night as thunderous
as his black guitar could growl. The audience loved
singing "Malerie." Jerry actually had the
right side of the club competing with the left side
to see who could scream the loudest. But the pinnacle
of the show was when Vewiser ended the set on a surprising
note with an amazing rendition of La Grange by ZZ
Top. From Spork opening the show with their mind bending
tunes, to Trash trashing everything, and Jerry Cherry
putting the babies to bed, the night at Broadway was
a slam-dunk. Watching the show tape later, the band
found it hard to believe all the wildness that had
just played out on the Broadway stage. Check soon
here in the Video section for some of that amazing
Start spreading the news.
Wow. What a concert. Jerry Cherry Flyers were handed
out by the hundreds. Although we got there late, we
still got to see Audioslave and Jane's Addiction.
Our cherry flyers looked so good sticking to the hot
sticky skin of many of the honey babies helping us
There were many interesting people there. Many didn't
wear shirts, even a lot of women. These girls' airbrushed
chests spawned ideas of a new wave of cherry chests.
It was a very muddy night and people slid down the
hill in waves, making a night for themselves they
will never forget, long after they've washed the mud
out of their shorts.
We met a lot of cool, beautiful people at the show.
We hope they will all become Cherry fans and continue
spreading the love at Broadway Thursday night at midnight.
I love you all.
show at Surf Cafe rocked. Improv was the order of the
day, as Jerry Cherry veered off the safe and cozy path
into mind bending experimental realms of soul-reaching
rock. Jerry's blistering solos and gut-wrenching vocals
left the Surf crowd mesmerized. Those in attendance
won't soon forget the passion Jerry Cherry left on that
stage... literally (Jerry himself writhed on the floor
with his guitar screaming, Vewiser thrashed his bass
with his tongue, and Ronnie nearly destroyed his mega-dollar
cherry cannons). Jerry doesn't actually condone violence
at his shows, but for some reason, a melee of epic proportion
broke out all over the Surf Cafe. The fight sprawled
to the outside, where not only men, but HOT women were
clashing like Titans. Jerry Cherry watched in amusement,
while fantasizing about fighting these women himself.
But he's a lover, not a fighter.
During the past month or so, Jerry Cherry has taken
a hard turn in a different direction. We found that
the dirt road that we're on now is rocky but we're discovering
new territories. We're very happy with the scenery.
There are so many people helping us out giving us ideas
and supporting us. We just want to say to them -thank
you and we are eternally grateful for everything. Come
see what all the excitement is about Thursday night
at Broadway in Aventura on 8-7-03 at midnight. Thank
you and good night. ---Jerry
are going very well. New tunes are feeling the influence
of the new dynamic with Vewiser. Ronnie and Vewiser
are the most solid rhythm section on the freakin' planet.
This band concept is really coming together. We're not
only playing really heavy songs, but we're starting
to blend in some acoustic songs that show the softer
side of Jerry Cherry.
bass player, from Beaumont, Texas, Vewiser Taylor, joins
the band, and a new era begins. As a matter of fact,
our old band name of 'Head', just isn't cutting it any
more. There are so many bands out there . . . Head-this
. . . Hed-that, etc. etc., it seems the world can do
without another 'Head'. Something is stirring, and it
ain't witches brew.... It's sweet, and round, and harmonious
like the music of the spheres... it's..... JERRY CHERRY.
As of now, this band is officially named JERRY CHERRY.
