Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Performs on the H-E-B Stage

2017 marks the 24th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the music scene. Since its formation in the early nineties in Ventura, California, 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. Early on, during their legendary residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, they reminded the world, in the midst of the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing. 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.

About Feast with the Beasts

The 2016 Feast with the Beasts event featured 60 of Houston’s hottest restaurants, special animal presentations and feedings, and a live performance by Gin Blossoms. Money raised helps support the care and feeding of the over 6,000 animals that call Houston Zoo home. Make sure you subscribe to the Houston Zoo e-mail newsletter for all Feast details.

Launched in the fall of 2006 as a fundraiser for the Houston Zoo, Feast with the Beasts was an instant hit! The Zoo’s naturally wild environment and 6,000 animals offer an unprecedented venue for this wine, beer and food event.

The 2006 event had 33 restaurant participants. The event has grown to feature more than 60 Houston-area restaurants, all serving their best dish, plus a live concert performance.

We’ve had sell-out crowds for the past four years, welcoming over 4,000 guests each year. Tickets sold out weeks in advance. With great restaurants from around Houston, plus a rockin’ show, Feast with the Beasts is the place to be!
