Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

December 18, 2023 | RCU Theatre


Since its formation in the early 1990s in Ventura, California, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has been at the forefront of the swing revival–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 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.
