Big Bad Voodoo Daddy swings into Sparks with nostalgia

Tahoe Onstage
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will be swinging at The Nugget in Sparks on Friday, March 15.

The mainstream scene of the 1990s may have brought some questionable contributions to the pantheon of popular music’s history. However, without question, one exception may be the most explosive revival of swing music in pop culture since the style’s original wave.

Bands such as Royal Crown Revue, Squirrel Nut Zippers and Cherry Poppin’ Daddies burst onto MTV, film soundtracks and the radio waves with vigor. And one band at the center of it all was Southern California’s Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. With “You & Me & The Bottle Makes 3 Tonight,” and other songs, the band soon took its jazzy cool fashion and irresistible swing energy across dance floors worldwide.

Having released its debut album in 1994, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has been a force since, continuing to tour and release new music. This year marks the group’s 25th anniversary of that first album, and the full band still features almost entirely original members – hardly a small accomplishment in a group whose onstage presence is made up of nearly a dozen musicians including a brass section and piano.

With infectious energy, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is bringing its show to the Nugget Casino Resort’s Celebrity Showroom in Sparks on Friday, March 15. For this performance, the Celebrity Showroom seating is general admission, meaning prime seats will go to the first to arrive.

Tickets are available online and without a service fee at midtown Reno’s Recycled Records. Additionally, all tickets purchased at Recycled Records are granted early entry, making this the preferred option to gain the best seats in the house.
