Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, a swing/jazz band, has been together for 24 years and performed a holiday concert in the Doudna Fine Arts Center’s Dvorak Concert Hall Tuesday night. The band, led by Scotty Morris and hailing from California, performed classic Christmas songs like “Jingle Bells” and “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth” with their own twist. Morris said before he started the band, he had performed in punk rock bands in the early 80s and said if he could do his shows for free he definitely would.
