Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, California’s sensational neo swing artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall!
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was formed in Ventura (California) in 1989 by lead vocalist Scotty Morris. He named the band after meeting legendary blues guitarist Albert Collins. "He signed my poster 'To Scotty, the big bad voodoo daddy'," Scott explains. "I thought it was the coolest name I ever heard on one of the coolest musical nights I ever had. So when it came time to name this band, I didn't really have a choice. I felt like it was handed down to me.” The band’s been through a few line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums and percussion), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen "The Kid" Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophones and clarinet), and touring member Alex "Crazy Legs" Henderson (trombone). Their style is best described as a blend of Neo-swing, jump blues, and lounge music. They’ve had a stellar career with 9 studio albums, 1 live albums, 1 video albums, 1 extended plays, and 1 single. They’ve also appeared in the 1996 comedy drama film Swingers and on the TV shows Party of Five and Hell’s Kithcen.
