Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Swings EKU
Sharon and I went with friends to the Big Bad Voodoo Daddy concert at EKU last night at Brock Auditorium. An enthusiastic capacity crowd attended the free show.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's music made the joint jump with swinging sounds of their standard reportoire and music from their Christmas album. BBVD, decked out in zoot suits, brought strong vocals, a tight five man horn section, and a grooving rhythm section to the stage. Many couples from the audience displayed their swing dance abilities in front of the elevated stage throughout the evening. The band put on an 80 minute energetic show that left the audience calling for more.
The music was played well by good musicians, the arrangements were interesting and swinging, but most of all, THE SHOW WAS FUN. The room acoustics and sound mix were not ideal, but certainly adequate. I look forward to the next time they come around.
