WHO ARE THEY: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy managed to accomplish a somewhat difficult task: bringing big band music back to prominence in the 1990s. Dressed in zoot suits and armed with Rat Pack lingo, the Los Angeles band broke through in 1996 when one of their tracks was featured on the “Swingers” soundtrack. The group released its debut self-titled album for Capitol Records in 1998, followed by “A Beautiful Life” a year later. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy performed at Super Bowl XXXIII and have had their music used in more than 60 films and television trailers.
