LA’S MASTERS OF SWING “BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY” RETURN TO AUSTRALIA
It's only been 9 months since Big Bad Voodoo Daddy played Australia for the first time and Select Touring are proud to announce they are coming back. The previous tour was such a success the band have decided to come back to Australian shores for another east coast tour, with shows in Brisbane & Melbourne.
BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY’s eighth studio album, HOW BIG CAN YOU GET? A Tribute to Cab Calloway, captures the essence of an American icon in a rowdy celebration of musicianship, mischief, genius, street smarts, and fun. It’s also possibly the timeliest and most welcome album of the year -- bringing a much-needed high-voltage jolt of winning, feel-good energy to a country slogging through tough times that may be getting tougher.
The band’s career milestones have included appearances in the Super Bowl half-time show, writing theme music for ESPN and network television, and performing for three American presidents. They have appeared numerous times on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brian and Live with Regis & Kelly, and wrote, performed and recorded the current theme song for the Carson Daly show after appearing multiple times as the show’s house band.
Since their arrival 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 has proven them over time to be the singular standout among the numerous bands that launched the Nineties swing revival. With the same line-up for Sixteen years the seven-man group forged a massively successful fusion of classic American sounds from jazz, swing, Dixieland and big-band music, building their own songbook of original dance tunes, and now, BBVD is a veteran force that to this day adds new fans by the roomful every time they play.
