Bankhead Presents: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
It’s been 25 years since their very first show at a backyard party and now, nearly 3,000 shows later Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s irresistible live show is every bit as dynamic and exciting. Their aggressive, musically-perceptive approach made them a standout among the numerous bands that launched the Nineties swing revival and earned them a fan base that has lasted for decades. With a massively-successful fusion of classic American sounds, blending music from the jazz, swing, Dixieland and big-band traditions, they built their own songbook of original dance tunes. Now after a quarter century and nearly a dozen albums, including last year’s “Louie, Louie, Louie”, BBVD continues to share their musical journey with non-stop energy and infectious enthusiasm.
“One of those rare bands that you have to see in person to truly appreciate, and one of those even rarer bands that sounds better in person than it does on a polished recording.” –St. Joseph News-Press
