Big Bad Voodoo Daddy with the Spokane Symphony this Saturday

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy made a remarkable arrival onto the music scene 24 years ago and their signature sound continues to define the neo-swing movement of American Jazz. Don't miss this amazing in concert with the Spokane Symphony this Saturday, January 28 at 8pm, at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox.

The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of the early nineties, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing and Dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture. Taking inspiration from the creators of American swing, 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, named after an autograph by blues legend Albert Collins, has appeared in concert venues across the world and sold millions of records, and had their music appear in hundreds of movies and television shows. Don't miss this special concert!

Tod's workshop title, 'If You Ain't No Place You Can't Go Nowhere' comes from Richard Hugo's 'The Triggering Town.' In his book, Hugo reminds poets of the importance of identifying the 'where' of a poem and how rooting creativity to place can allow the imagination to grow in unexpected ways.
