Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Horn Section Signs With Yamaha Artist Services

Bookmark and Share
INDIANAPOLIS (March 27, 2014)—Yamaha Artist Services Indianapolis announced that the horn section of the legendary Big Bad Voodoo Daddy band has joined the Yamaha Artist family. GRAMMY Award® nominated swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has sold millions of records, and their music has appeared in hundreds of movies and television shows since the band hit the scene in 1993. Their classic jazz sound has captured audiences for more than twenty years and continues to mesmerize new listeners.

The horn section consists of Karl Hunter (YTS-82ZIIU Saxophone), Andy Rowley (YBS-62 Saxophone), Glen Marhevka (YTR-8310Z Trumpet), Anthony Bonsera (YTR-8335LA Trumpet), and Alex Henderson (YSL-891Z Trombone).

“From the moment we started playing Yamaha horns, we noticed that we blended together beautifully and it was easy to play in tune as a section,” said the band’s horn section in a statement. “We enjoy working with Yamaha through clinics and keeping the world inspired with our Yamaha horns.”

The band began by playing clubs and lounges in southern California, offering a sound that transported the listener to the 1940s and 1950s. After their big break came with the hit songs “You & Me & the Bottle Makes 3 Tonight (Baby)” and “Go Daddy-O,” the group signed to a major label and their career took off.

To support the band’s tenth studio album, It Feels Like Christmas Time, released in 2013, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy toured the United States and celebrated their 20-year anniversary. The holiday album follows their 2012 release, Rattle Them Bones, which marked the group’s return to the top of the Billboard Charts. Even with their continued success, the band maintains a strong commitment to music education by conducting clinics across the country.

“Glen, Anthony, Karl, Andy, and Alex add a hip element to our artist family,” said John Wittmann, director, artist relations and education, Yamaha Artist Services Indianapolis. “Their experience, legendary talent, and dedication to music will help excite the next generation of horn players.”
