Todd Roper left the band after recording Comfort Eagle. Greg Brown left in 1998, replaced by Xan McCurdy. Damiani left the band in 1997, replaced by Gabe Nelson. Their musical style is quite unique, and has been compared to They Might Be Giants and the Talking Heads, though a more accurate sound-alike would be Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass.
Although their music is often classifed as alternative rock, Cake commonly combines multiple musical genres, such as funk, pop, jazz, rap, and country. Cake's music features droll lyrics rife with word play (laconically-voiced in a rap-like style by lead vocalist/guitarist John McCrea), catchy distorted guitar riffs (courtesy, until 1998, of guitarist Greg Brown and, until 1997, bass player Victor Damiani), and a solo trumpet (played by Vince DiFiore). Cake is a Sacramento, California band, formed in 1991, who have had several hits throughout the 1990s and 2000s from their five recorded albums. Todd Roper - Drums, percussion (left after Comfort Eagle). John McCrea - Vocals, acoustic guitar, organ, vibraslap.
originally Victor Damiani (also left before "Prolonging the Magic" was recorded). Gabe Nelson - Bass guitar
