By now the world knows the essential story of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (BBVD)—the band co-founded by leader Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren made their debut in 1993. The band ushered in the swing revival founded on a colorful fusion of classic American sounds including jazz, swing, and Dixie land mixed with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture. They proved to be among the standout groups that launched the new swing era in the 90's.
The group, whose core lineup has been in place since 1995, includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums and percussion), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen "The Kid" Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophones and clarinet) and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger.) Joining them on the road are Anthony Bonsera Jr. (lead trumpet) and Alex Henderson (trombone).
