Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s Wild and Swingin’ Holiday Party
Opening Act: Allison Scull and Victor Martin
April, 2022, marks the 29th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the music scene. Since its formation in the early nineties in Ventura, California, the band 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. Early on, during their legendary residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, they reminded the world, in the midst of the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing. 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 29 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 2022.
ABOUT ALLISON AND VICTOR
Allison Scull and Victor Martin’s unusual collaborative style–singer-songwriter plus saxophone–connects grown-ups and little people alike. Together, they create a fusion of musical forms uniquely their own. They blend roots music — a fusion of jazz, folk, blues, a little funk, originals and some jazz standards laced with some French lyrics. Allison learned French where she grew up in Belgium while Victor was born and raised in Middletown, Delaware.
As a duo, Allison and Victor have shared the stage with The Blind Boys of Alabama, Tuck and Patti, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Craig Chaquico, Shana Morrison, Archie Lee Hooker, Acoustic Alchemy, blues legend John Hammond, Lazy Lester, famed drummer Akira Tana and hall of famer Terry Robb. Their constant performance schedule has contributed to their growing fan base on the West Coast, USA. While their music has struck a chord in the wine country of Northern California and Oregon as well as the festival circuit, Allison and Victor also perform in Arizona and in Mexico. In 2021, they were honored to be invited to perform for the first Juneteenth Celebration at the Coos History Museum in Coos Bay Oregon. Mostly performing as a duo, they have also developed a show with a stellar array of musicians in their Midnight Band which include Stefan Schittko on keyboard, Bruce Calin as well as percussionist Michael P. Harris and drummer Patrick Wiseman.
