Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy at Fox Tucson Theatre

September 11, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$27.50 – $89

The band that reminds the world that it’s cool to swing, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is the perfect choice to set the vibe for Fox’s first Chasing Rainbows Gala of the 2021-2020 Season!

Unless you’ve been lucky enough to see Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington or Cab Calloway in person, you probably have not seen swing music played with such fervor, precision or, most importantly, perfection. The band’s vibrant fusion of classic American jazz, swing, and dixieland has energized the Fox stage and romanced Fox fans many times. If you missed them before, now is your chance!

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen "The Kid" Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophones and clarinet) and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger).

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s efforts to promote and revitalize swing music have taken shape as much more than a simple tribute. Taking inspiration from the creators of this uniquely American art form, the band’s original horn-infused music and legendary high-energy show introduces the genre to a new and younger generation while remaining cognizant and respectful of the music’s rich legacy.

The group’s first phase of stardom featured an appearance in the 1996 indie film Swingers, a movie that not only launched the careers of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, but introduced Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to an audience beyond their Los Angeles base.

The band's music has appeared in countless films and television shows, including The Wild, Despicable Me, Phineas & Ferb, Friends, Third Rock From The Sun, Ally McBeal, and So You Think You Can Dance. They have appeared live on Dancing With The Stars, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center, The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a remarkable seven appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and the Super Bowl XXXIII Halftime Show. The band has also appeared as special guests with many of the country's most distinguished symphony orchestras, and has performed for three U.S. Presidents.
