Since its formation 28 years ago, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average over 150 shows per year. In the meantime, they also produced a sizable catalog of recorded music, with album sales well over 2 million.
Early on, during their legendary residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, they 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 forefront 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.
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).
After 28 years, 11 records, over 2800 live shows, and countless appearances in film and television, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy shows no signs of slowing down.
