Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to Perform at Penn State York

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
10/20/2005 —

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (BBVD) will perform on December 6 at Penn State York’s new Pullo Family Performing Arts Center. The performance, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s Wild and Swingin' Holiday Party, is set for 7:30 p.m. and tickets are on sale now. BBVD brings the big band sounds of Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Glenn Miller holiday style. BBVD borrows the Rat Pack lingo, the hip zoot suits, and the swinging days of the '40s and '50s.

BBVD’s upbeat sound has been embraced both by older fans nostalgic for the music of their youth and by younger fans interested in swing dancing and the elegance and sophistication of the Big Band era. They have performed at the Billboard Music Awards, the White House and at the halftimes of both the Super Bowl and the Orange Bowl. The band’s videos are regularly featured on MTV and VH1 and they have performed on numerous television shows such as "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Live with Regis" and "Late Night with Conan O’Brien."

Penn State York’s Pullo Family Performing Arts Center has seating for just over 1,000 and offers full theater capabilities. It is a state-of-the-art venue providing an intimate cultural experience. Tickets are $29 and $24. For tickets and information, visit http://www.pullocenter.yk.psu.edu/ or call 717-505-8900.
