For 26 years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s unique take on American swing  and jazz music has thrilled audiences around the world, while their  unique and spirited “Wild and Swingin’ Holiday Party” has become an  eagerly anticipated annual family event. Singer and band leader Scotty  Morris says, “If you’re going to go to a holiday show with your family,  this is the one! It really does offer something for everyone.” Drawing  on a rich catalogue of holiday classics and Christmas originals from the  band’s two full length holiday albums, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy brings its  world-renowned live show, and fun and quirky take on the holidays, to  you.

Fun arrangements of classic holiday songs in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy style  include: Jingle Bells, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, and Winter  Wonderland. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is “Andrew’s Sisters” meets  the blues, and the just as classic Heat Miser song transports listeners  back to another beloved holiday special. The band rips through Chuck  Berry’s Run, Run Rudolph, Lou Rawls’ Merry Christmas Baby, and slows  things down for Elvis Presley’s Blue Christmas. Detours to New Orleans  for Frosty the Snowman, and to the Caribbean for the Calypso A Party for  Santa, keep things interesting. The band takes a moment to reflect on  the beauty and spirituality of the holidays with their moving  arrangement of We Three Kings.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has always made writing original music a  priority, and the holidays are no exception. Rockabilly Christmas, Last  Night (I Went Out With Santa Claus), Christmas Time in Tinsel Town, and  the beautiful and reflective It Feels Like Christmas Time, are the  band’s take on the many feelings of the holidays.

With over two decades together, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is still picking  up steam and continues to tour, record, and entertain. Merry Christmas  and Happy New Year!
