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!

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.

Take the Long Island Expressway to exit 49N or the Northern State Parkway to exit 40N. The exit sign will say Huntington Route 110. After a few miles you will cross Jericho Turnpike. Route 110 will change its name to New York Avenue (but will remain Rte 110). After a couple of more miles, you’ll pass the Huntington train station on your right. About a mile past the train station at 370 New York Avenue, between Carver and Elm Street, still on Route 110 and right in the middle of the block, you’ll see a big old theater building with a flat marquee up against the building. That’s IMAC. We suggest you drive past IMAC to our north corner, Elm Street. Make a right up Elm and you’ll find a large free municipal parking lot. Park and walk back to New York Avenue to enter the theater.

By Train

If you’re traveling by train, take the Long Island Railroad to Huntington (the last stop on the Huntington line). Take a taxi to IMAC, 370 New York Avenue. Taxis and trains run all night. For more information you can call IMAC business office Tuesday through Friday 11 am to 6 pm and Saturdays of performances after 2 pm at (631) 549-9666 or e-mail at
