Description 
April, 2020, marks the 27th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the
music scene. Since its formation in the early nineties in Ventura, California, the band has toured
virtually nonstop, performing on average over 150 shows a year, and has produced a sizable
catalog of recorded music, with sales of over 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).

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s efforts to promote and revitalize swing music have taken shape as
much more than a simple tribute. 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 remaining cognizant and respectful of the music’s
rich legacy.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's first phase of stardom featured an appearance in the 1996 indie film
*Swingers*, a movie that not only launched the careers of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau but
introduced Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to an audience beyond their Los Angeles base. The band's
music has appeared in countless films and television shows, including *The Wild*, *Despicable
Me*, *Phineas & Ferb*, *Friends*, *Third Rock From The Sun*, *Ally McBeal*, and* So You
Think You Can Dance*. They have appeared live on *Dancing With The Stars*,* Late Night With
Conan O’Brien*, *NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center,* *The Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade*, a remarkable seven appearances on *The Tonight Show with Jay Leno*, and the
*Super Bowl XXXIII Halftime Show.* The band has also appeared as special guests with many
of the country's most distinguished symphony orchestras and has performed for three U.S.
Presidents.

After 27 years, 11 records, over 3000 live shows, and countless appearances in film and
television, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is showing no signs of slowing down, and is looking
forward to sharing its music with new and old fans alike, in 2019.
