Since its formation in the early ʼ90s in California, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has toured virtually nonstop and sold over 2 million albums. Their early residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles reminded the world, amid the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing. The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, blends the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and Dixieland with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture in an effort to revitalize the genre while remaining respectful of the music’s rich legacy.
Jake Shimabukuro is a humble master of the ukulele whose mission is to connect and inspire people. He shares a deep emotional connection with the listener that is open, magical, and transcendent. Often referred to as the Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Lee, or Michael Jordan of his craft, Shimabukuro performs around the world with an out-of-the-box blend of stunning virtuosity, deep musicality, and a natural entertainer's flair. He takes the ukulele to places no one has gone before, performing awe-inspiring music that ranges from jazz, blues, and rock to bluegrass, classical, and folk.
