About the Band: 

You may be familiar with the members of Voodoo DooDads, since they are a local band and the members also belong to other well-known bands in our area. Featuring Valerie Johnson, Al B Blue, Dr. Bob Brennan (Doctor of Safe Sax), Brian Hanratty, and John Stinson, they play old- school jazz, blues, New Orleans sounds, and standards. Hot, cool, and in between, their music puts a glow on any event they play.
