The swing band will perform for one night only on June 6
Popular swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will perform one show on Thursday, June 6 at Bristol Riverside Theatre. Tickets are on sale now for the 8 p.m. performance.
The high-energy, nine-piece, swing-influenced ensemble ushered in the “swing revival” in the early 90s with its fusion of musical styles, and has been featured on numerous television shows, including Dancing with the Stars, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Last Call with Carson Daly, for which the band wrote and recorded the show’s theme song.
2018 marked the 25th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the music scene. The band has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average more than 150 shows a year, and has produced a sizable catalog of recorded music, with sales of more than 2 million albums to date.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all-original core lineup includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen “The Kid” Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophone and clarinet), and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger).
Tickets are $59 and are available by visiting brtstage.org or calling the BRT box office at 215–785–0100. Bristol Riverside Theatre is located at 120 Radcliffe Street in Bristol.
