Since its formation in the early ‘90s in Ventura, Calif., the band has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average over 150 shows a year, and has produced a sizable catalog of recorded music, with sales of over 2 million albums to date.
The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and Dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen “The Kid” Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophones and clarinet) and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger).
The amphitheater is a result of a public-private partnership between Luminary Hotel & Co. and the City of Fort Myers.
Located at 2101 Edwards Drive, the 4,000-capacity amphitheater opened this summer along the Caloosahatchee River, adjacent to Luminary Hotel & Co. and the Caloosa Sound Convention Center.
