The Cherokee Maidens are taking over this Memorial Day weekend.

The band – made up of Robin Macy, Lauren White and Monica Taylor – are releasing a new album Friday night.

“My Dixie Darling” is the band’s latest recording, featuring the Sycamore Swing – and the group has a series of shows lined over the holiday weekend.

The CD features songs primarily from the 1920s to ‘40s, with a few original tunes thrown in, as well as some one-offs from other decades.

The party starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, with a CD release show at Roxy’s Downtown, 412 E. Douglas. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $15.

Here’s the remainder of the group’s Memorial Day schedule:

▪ 8 p.m. Saturday, The Blue Door, 2805 N. McKinley, Oklahoma City

▪ 4 p.m. Monday, Bartlett Arboretum, 201 N. Line Street, Belle Plaine. Admission $10

▪ 7 p.m. Thursday, Tulsa Performing Arts Center, 110 E. 2nd, Tulsa.
