Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
swing band plays Alpharetta Saturday

2011 August 12


Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will perform at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park this Saturday, Aug. 18.

Sounding like a mix between the 70s band Stray Cats and music from the swing era and Broadway, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will perform songs from its newest album “How Big Can You Get?: The Music of Cab Calloway,” along with BBVD classics, including “Go Daddy-O,” “You & Me & the Bottle Makes 3 Tonight (Baby),” and “Mr. Pinstripe Suit.”

Playing together for 16 years, the band was featured in the indie film “Swingers” and has appeared numerous times on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brian” and “Live with Regis & Kelly.” BBVD appeared multiple times as the Carson Daly show’s house band, and wrote, performed and recorded the show’s theme song.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy with the ASO, Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 to $35 and are available online at atlantasymphony.org, or by calling (404) 733-5000.
