Show Preview: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy @ Jazz Alley – 7/13-7/16

Show Preview: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy @ Jazz Alley – Thursday, July 13th through Sunday, July 16th

California’s Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will make six appearances at Jazz Alley over four days! It’s now been thirty years since the swing band hopped onto the scene. With its current lineup of lead singer & guitarist Scotty Morris and trumpet player Glen “The Kid” Marhevka, plus saxophone/clarinet player Karl Hunter AND drummer Kurt Sodergren; bassist Dirk Shumaker; baritone saxophonist Andy Rowley and Joshua Levy on piano, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy hold a special place in my heart for (and not limited to) releasing two Christmas albums. One even had “Mr. Heatmiser” on it! While they probably won’t do any Christmas tunes (hey, you never know, it might cool down this heatwave we’re having), they’ll likely do the famous “The Jumpin’ Jive.” So swing, swing swing. Wear comfy but pretty dancing shoes.
