Cake is an alternative rock / country music band from Sacramento,
California, consisting of singer John McCrea, trumpeter Vince DiFiore, guitarist
Xan McCurdy, bassist Daniel McCallum, and drummer Todd Roper. The band has been
noted for McCrea's sarcastic lyrics and deadpan vocals, and their wide-ranging
musical influences, including norteño, country music, mariachi, rock, funk, folk
music, and hip hop.
Cake incorporates a wide range of genres into its music, including
country music, mariachi, new wave, college rock, jazz, funk, Iranian folk music,
Brazilian music and hip hop. McCrea himself cites Hank Williams, Tom Zé, the
Golden Gate Quartet and Sly and the Family Stone as particular influences.
Cake is most often noted for four things: the prominence of DiFiore's
trumpet lines, McCrea's ironic, sarcastic lyrics, his "droll, deadpan ...
monotone" vocals, and the use of the vibraslap. DiFiore's trumpet work
originated with McCrea's desire for a second melodic instrument to go with a
song he had written; "A lead guitar playing those lines would have been really
hokey. I like it when it's a contrapuntal thing, where the guitar is doing one
melody, the vocal is doing another melody, and the trumpet plays this third
melody. If the music can be transparent enough, you can hear all three at the
Hire Cake for your party or event!
