More about Cake
Cake was originally formed by John McCrea along with drummer Frank French, bass player Shon McFessel and trumpet player Vince DiFiore. McCrea and DiFiore remain as the two original members that have endured throughout the band’s career, which has now spanned almost two decades. Despite lineup changes Cake has maintained its original voice and style, evolving over the years into a five-piece after various talented musicians have come and go. The other members of the current lineup include Gabe Nelson – the bassist from Cake’s first studio album – plus Paulo Baldi on the drums and Xan McCurdy on lead guitar.
