Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

by Metroland Staff on November 15, 2012

TROY SAVINGS BANK MUSIC HALL, FRIDAY

Formed in Ventura, Calif., in 1989 by Scotty Morris and Kurt Sodergren, the seven-piece swing revival band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy have spent the last three decades playfully reinventing the genre with their saxophones, trumpets, piano, percussion—you name it. It wasn’t until their music was played in the 1996 comedy-drama Swingers, a seemingly perfect fit, that the band gained commercial appreciation. In recent years, the group have lit up several American symphony orchestras, playing with groups such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
