BIG BAD
VOODOO DADDY

"These hep cats in sharp 40s-style threads produce good-humored, foot tapping swagger swing revival."

Kicking off the 19th annual Chico World Music Festival, BBVD will bring their good time swing spirit to Laxson in celebration of their newest album — How Big Can You Get? A Tribute To Cab Calloway. With a fusion of jazz, swing, Dixieland, and big-band music, this beboopin', high voltage, feel-good group raises swing to a new level — one that will leave you dancing in the aisles!

Tickets are required for this performance, ranging from $23–$37, and are available at the University Box Office, or by clicking here.

On Sept. 15 & 16, the daytime performances
