During the 1990s, the American public fell in love with swing music. While it's difficult to point the finger at any one cultural trend that would make people fall for a nostalgic style of music, there are a few bands that can act as culprits - one band being Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. The group formed in 1989 in Ventura, California and after achieving mainstream success, (even playing a Super Bowl half-time show in 1999) the band returned to relative obscurity. But the band still continues to tour and release new material on a fairly consistent basis despite being nowhere near the center of the cultural lexicon.
