Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Wild & Swingin’ Holiday Party

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Wild & Swingin’ Holiday Party


Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s rollicking mix of swing, jazz, ‘50s rock and roll made them an audience favorite in Poway and across the nation. The band were vanguards of the ‘90s swing music revival and have sold out concert halls from the Hollywood Bowl to the Lincoln Center. Now they return with a rich catalogue of holiday classics and Christmas originals from the band’s two full-length holiday albums.

For 28 years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s unique take on American swing and jazz music has
thrilled audiences around the world, while their unique and spirited “Wild and Swingin’ Holiday
Party” has become an eagerly anticipated annual family event. Singer and band leader Scotty
Morris says, “If you’re going to go to a holiday show with your family, this is the one! It really
does offer something for everyone.” Drawing on a rich catalogue of holiday classics and
Christmas originals from the band’s two full length holiday albums, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
brings its world-renowned live show, and fun and quirky take on the holidays, to you.

Fun arrangements of classic holiday songs in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy style include: Jingle
Bells, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, and Winter Wonderland. Rudolph the Red Nosed
Reindeer is “Andrew’s Sisters” meets the blues, and the just as classic Heat Miser song
transports listeners back to another beloved holiday special. The band rips through Chuck
Berry’s Run, Run Rudolph, Lou Rawls’ Merry Christmas Baby, and slows things down for Elvis
Presley’s Blue Christmas. Detours to New Orleans for Frosty the Snowman, and to the
Caribbean for the Calypso A Party for Santa, keep things interesting. The band takes a
moment to reflect on the beauty and spirituality of the holidays with their moving arrangement
of We Three Kings.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has always made writing original music a priority, and the holidays are
no exception. Rockabilly Christmas, Last Night (I Went Out With Santa Claus), Christmas
Time in Tinsel Town, and the beautiful and reflective It Feels Like Christmas Time, are the
band’s take on the many feelings of the holidays.

With almost three decades together, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is still picking up steam and
continues to tour, record, and entertain. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
