LBC Presents Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival on the music scene in 1993 reminded the world, in the midst of the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival on the music scene in 1993 reminded the world, in the midst of the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing. The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the fore of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and Dixieland with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture. Taking inspiration from the creators of this uniquely American art form, the band’s original horn-infused music and legendary high-energy show introduces the genre to a new and younger generation, while continuing to respect the music’s rich legacy.
Since its formation in Ventura, California, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has toured virtually nonstop, performing, on average, more than 150 shows a year. They have produced a sizable catalog of recorded music, with sales of more than 2 million albums to date. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen “The Kid” Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophones and clarinet), and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger). The band’s music has appeared in countless films and television shows, including the 1996 indie film Swingers, The Wild, Despicable Me, Phineas & Ferb, Friends, Third Rock From The Sun, Ally McBeal, and So You Think You Can Dance.
