Band: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

Drums pound, feet tap, fingers snap.  A sultry voice begins to croon, and suddenly the horns make their entrance.  Man, these cats have got rhythm, and now the vintage-clad crowd is boogying with unharnessed glee.  Welcome to the swing scene, where the music, dance, and style of the 1940’s have been revived with a passion.  Welcome to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy!

image

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy had led the international revival of the jump of the Big Band era, with a sound that is not just big and bad, but huge and awesome!  In the rich traditions of musical masters Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has jumped into the spotlight of the swing dance craze with a brassy, updated and upbeat style of jazz.

Their credits include performing as the halftime entertainment at the Super Bowl, Orange Bowl, The White House, Billboard Music Awards and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.  The group’s videos are routinely featured on MTV and VH1.  The band’s biggest break came when they were cast to be the musical focal point of the movie “Swingers”.  With a truly contagious sound, rhythm and lyrics that bring passion back into music, Big Band Voodoo Daddy will feed your soul.
