Big bad voodoo Daddy

 From our very first show at a backyard party, until today, nearly 3000 shows later, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s unending goal has always been to play good music, and have fun while doing it.

 April 25th, 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s first show on April 25th, 1993 at that backyard party in Ventura California.

We couldn't have done it without you.

From those partygoers at our first show, 25 years ago, to the folks we continue to play for, all year long,

Thank you!
