On Friday, January 19th, 2007 at
7 & 9:30pm, the Inter-Media Art Center (IMAC)
in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with
swinging Big Band group Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
Drums pound, feet tap, fingers snap. A sultry voice
begins to croon, and suddenly the horns make their entrance. Man,
these cats have got rhythm, and now the vintage-clad crowd
is boogying with unharnessed glee. Welcome to the
swing scene, where the music, dance, and style of the 1940’s
have been revived with a passion. Welcome to Big
Bad Voodoo Daddy!
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy had led the international
revival of the jump of the Big Band era, with a sound that
is not just big and bad, but huge and awesome! In
the rich traditions of musical masters Benny Goodman, Duke
Ellington and Glenn Miller, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has
jumped into the spotlight of the swing dance craze with
a brassy, updated and upbeat style of jazz.
Their credits include performing as the halftime entertainment
at the Super Bowl, Orange Bowl, The White House, Billboard
Music Awards and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. The
group’s videos are routinely featured on MTV and
VH1. The band’s biggest break came when they
were cast to be the musical focal point of the movie “Swingers”. With
a truly contagious sound, rhythm and lyrics that bring
passion back into music, Big Band Voodoo Daddy will
feed your soul.
