I remember the first time I saw/heard Big Bad Voodoo Daddy like it was yesterday. It was actually 1996 and a group of buddies and I went to the movie theatre to see Swingers. One of my first thoughts, after seeing the flick, was that I had to get the soundtrack, which I did. I was super excited to see that the soundtrack included not one, not two, but three swinging songs from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. I was hooked.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy first hit the music scene in 1993 and has been touring pretty much nonstop since, playing an average of 150 shows each year. So this year, the boys in the band (and all of their fans) are celebrating their 30th anniversary, and you get to celebrate with them in Evansville.
