Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

July 20 @ 7:30 pm EDT

Since its formation in the early nineties in Ventura, California, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average over 150 shows a year, and has produced a sizable catalog of recorded music, with sales of over 2 million albums to date. The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture.
After 30 years, 11 records, over 3000 live shows, and countless appearances in film and television, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is showing no signs of slowing down, and is looking forward to sharing its music with new and old fans alike, in 2024.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at The Academy Center of the Arts is sponsored by the Sonny Merryman Family, WSET, Virginia Commission for the Arts, and National Endowment for the Arts.
Tickets for this event are $29 – 67. Presale is happening now, with the General Public on Sale beginning Friday, 5/17, at 10 AM.
