Big Bad Voodoo Daddy » Biography
The band was originally formed in 1989 by leader Scott Morris. He and Kurt Sodergren are the two “original” members, with the rest of the band joining later on. The band concentrated on the swing of the 1940s and ’50s, playing clubs and lounges in their early years. The band launched two CDs, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Watchu’ Want for Christmas? under their own label (Big Bad Records) before getting their big break when their songs “You & Me & The Bottle Makes Three Tonight (Baby)” and “Go Daddy-O” were featured in the 1996 comedy Swingers.
From there they were signed by Capitol Records. With Capitol the band released Americana Deluxe (also known as a second Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) and This Beautiful Life. The band has continued their tours, performances and album releases Save My Soul, Live, and Everything You Want For Christmas, with one high point being their appearance at the 1999 Super Bowl half-time show.
Over the last few years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has experienced great success playing on the Pops programs of American Symphony Orchestras and regular US tours.
Most recently, BBVD released a tribute album titled How Big Can You Get?: The Music Of Cab Calloway.
