– Celebrating their 20th anniversary, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will bring their high-energy swing style to the stage of the Park Theatre in Cranston on Saturday, March 16. With their recent widely-anticipated release of Rattle Them Bones, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy proves that their ground-breaking nine-piece ensemble has not missed a beat.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy formed in 1989 in Ventura, California when original members Scotty Morris and Kurt Sodergren traded in their alternative punk sound in favor of the 1940’s and 1950’s big band swing style. In 1996, the group’s hits "Go Daddy-O," "You & Me & the Bottle Makes 3 Tonight (Baby)," and "Mr. Pinstripe Suit" topped the charts and paved the way for the band’s future success.
During their impressive career, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has been invited to play numerous Pops programs of American symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The band also stakes claim to the honor of performing during the Super Bowl halftime show in 1999.
Known for their rigorous touring schedule, the band plays upwards of 150 shows each year, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has also been the house band for ESPN’s ESPY Awards, performed annually at the Walt Disney World Food & Wine Festival, and created songs for several movies and television shows. On January 9, the band performed their new hit single “Why Me?” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 16. Tickets are priced at $25 and $35, and are currently on sale. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Box Office at (401) 467-7275 or online through the Theatre’s secure website: www.ParkTheatreRI.com.
