Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

Swing-jazz band takes the Ovation stage for one night.

After Blues Guitar Legend Albert Collins autographed a poster for Scotty Morris signing it, "to: the big bad voodoo daddy," Morris knew he had a name for the jazz combo that he and fellow jazz musician Kurt Sodergren were trying to start.

Since 1989 Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has been performing the type of swing-jazz that makes feet tap and heads bob. The seven man band is responsible for hits like "Big Daddy O" and "You and Me and the Bottle Makes Three Tonight" which were both featured on "Swingers."

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy takes the stage inside Ovation at the Green Valley Ranch at 7 p.m. and tickets are $34.95, $44.95 and $54.95.
