Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to perform at Mid-State Fair 

big bad voodoo daddy mid state fair–The California Mid-State Fair has announced that Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will be performing at the 2018 Fair on Saturday, July 21, with performances at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s concerts will take place on the Frontier Stage and will be free with paid Fair admission.

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the music scene. Since it’s 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.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), 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).

The 2018 California Mid-State Fair runs July 18-29 and this year’s theme is “Ole, It’s Fiesta Time!”
