This special set is shared by two of Caleb Chapman’s mighty big bands bands: The Voodoo Orchestra and La Onda Caribeña.
Taking its cues from bands like the Brian Setzer Orchestra, the Atomic Fireballs, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, the Voodoo Orchestra revisits the high-energy jump swing of the 1930s and 1940s. With Rat Pack swagger, this dynamic group features 20 top-notch musicians who faithfully celebrate the music and style of one of America’s golden ages of music. The band was recognized in 2010 and 2011 by DownBeat with the award for “Outstanding Rock/Blues Band.”
La Onda Caribeña, a 20-piece big band featuring a four-piece percussion section, is known for lighting up dance floors with authentic Latin jazz and sizzling dance music. They have been featured with legendary artists such as Poncho Sanchez and Francisco Torres and were awarded "Best Latin Jazz Ensemble" by DownBeat in 2012.
