Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Since it’s formation in the early 90s 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, cofounded 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 bands efforts to promote and revitalize swing music have taken shape as much more than a simple tribute. Taking inspiration from the creators of this uniquely American art form, the band’s original horn-infused music and legendary high energy show introduces the genre to a new and younger generation while remaining cognizant and respectful of the music’s rich legacy.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s first phase of stardom featured an appearance in the 1996 indie film Swingers, a movie that not only launched the careers of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, but introduced Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to an audience beyond their Los Angeles base. The band’s music has appeared in countless films and television shows, including The Wild, Despicable Me, Phineas & Ferb, Friends, Third Rock From The Sun, Ally McBeal, and So You Think You Can Dance. They have appeared live on Dancing With The Stars, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center, The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a remarkable seven appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and the Super Bowl XXXIII Halftime Show. The band has also appeared as special guests with many of the country’s most distinguished symphony orchestras, and has performed for three U.S. Presidents.
After 25 years, 11 records, over 2800 live shows, and countless appearances in film and television, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is showing no signs of stopping.
Describe a band that travels and performs with an acoustic upright piano, saxophones, upright bass, and drums. Drums played by one of the founding members of “The Blasters”. Rumble King’s arrangements are tight and melodic, honest, faithful and always rockin’, giving them a genuinely raw, American roots inspired sound. They are of the few, if not the only band to perform in a guitar dominant genre, without one. Aaron remarks, “Love guitar and we have had some great players sit in with us from time to time, but somehow along the way we discovered our own thing and it just didn’t require it”
Rumble King partnered with Ostrich Colony Films in 2012 to produce the 2013 multi-award winning short film, “I Still Adore You”, based on the band’s recent single of the same title. The movie featured a live performance by the band and several scenes included them in supporting roles.
Rumble King’s current self-titled EP release was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Grammy Award winner Tom Weir at Studio City Sound. In addition to the EP, a new (45) single will be released on vinyl in summer 2014. The band welcomes the opportunity to develop new business relationships to expand a comprehensive marketing strategy including; film, television, internet, radio, and print to secure the potential success for this release.
