Following the paths of big band legends like Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Duke Ellington, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s brassy, upbeat sound has been embraced by both older fans seeking the music of their youth and by legions of younger fans captivated by the elegance and sophistication of the Big Band era.
BBVD has performed at the Billboard Music Awards, the White House and at the halftimes of both the Super Bowl and the Orange Bowl. The band’s videos are regularly featured on MTV and VH1 and they have performed on numerous television shows such as “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Live with Regis,” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”
Their notable songs include “She’s Gone,” “Jumpin’ Jack,” “Cruel Spell,” “Go Daddy-O,” and “You & Me & The Bottle Makes Three Tonight (Baby).” The group’s latest CD, “Save My Soul,” was, for the first time, produced by the band itself. It also includes a DVD with three live videos and a “making of” video.
