Big Bad Voodoo Daddy arrived on the music scene in 1993 with a legendary residency at the Brown Derby Nightclub in Los Angeles. In 1996, the band rocketed to fame after performing two of their songs, “You & Me and the Bottle Makes Three (Tonight)” and “Go Daddy-O,” in the hit movie “Swingers.” Since then, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has performed for three U.S. presidents, with the United States Air Force Orchestra and at the 1999 Super Bowl halftime show. They have also written theme music for ESPN, “The Carson Daly Show” and “3rd Rock From the Sun.”
To date, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has released eight studio albums, most recently “How Big Can You Get? A Tribute to Cab Calloway,” in 2009.
The seven-man group is comprised of Scotty Morris, lead vocals and guitar; Kurt Sodergren, percussion; Dirk Shumaker, double bass and vocals; Andy Rowley, baritone saxophone and vocals; Glen Marhevka, trumpet; Karl Hunter, saxophones and clarinet; and Joshua Levy, piano and arranger.
