Friday March 5th at 8 &10:30pm, 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
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.
