Biography

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are a popular swing revival band from Ventura in California who, after playing on the fringes of the California music scene for a number of years, signed to Capitol Records in 1997 and began to achieve national recognition throughout the States. They appeared at the Superbowl in 1999 and since then have appeared on 'The Tonight Show' with Jay Leno and the reality show 'Dancing With the Stars'.

Although the band promote a good-time image playing lively swing music their success is based on solid, high quality musicianship which has led to the group being invited to appear with leading American orchestras such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on their respective programmes.

The band formed in 1989 under the leadership of guitarist Scotty Morris. When questioned about the origins of the band's name Morris claims it came as a result of a meeting with blues legend Albert Collins who scribbled an autograph on Moore's concert poster which said "To Scotty, the Big Bad Voodoo Daddy". The band have nine studio albums to their credit and have achieved commercial success with the singles 'Go Daddy-O' and 'Mr Pinstripe Suit'.
