Description: Since arriving on the music scene in 1993 in a legendary residency at Los Angeles' Brown Derby nightclub, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's irresistible live show and aggressive, musically perceptive approach have proven the band to be the singular standout among the numerous outfits that launched the '90s swing revival. The seven-man group forged a massively successful fusion of classic American sounds from jazz, swing, Dixieland, and big band music, building its own songbook of original dance tunes. Now, almost 20 years later, BBVD is a veteran force that to this day adds new fans by the roomful every time it plays.
