Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy performing "The Boogie Bumper/Jumpin' Jack"
When Big Bad Voodoo Daddy plays, you can almost hear the sound of calendar pages flipping in reverse. Big and brass, their rhythm is the secret knock to a speakeasy and their sing-along hooks are the diamonds that pay the cops off beneath the table. Staples of the LA lounge circuit since 1992, the band evolved from the cocktail scene to the national spotlight with their performance in the 1996 movie Swingers. Soon they were spearheading a boom in big-band revivalists, selling over three million albums, playing the Super Bowl halftime with Stevie Wonder, and landing their songs on countless soundtracks. More than 20 years since their genesis, with most of the core members intact, the group continues to mine the past for gold on its latest album, Rattle Them Bones. A celebration of Americana that would fit seamlessly in Franklin Roosevelt's iTunes library, it showcases the band's vintage swing sass and experimental nature—both of which also make it into their legendary live shows. Attending fans can expect a wealth of classics from the days when people said "You're so money," alongside later numbers that pack the "hi-di-ho" punch of Cab Calloway.
