Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (Friday, October 24, Saturday, 25)

Given the Tobin's other inaugural bookings, the Symphony's Pops series leans towards the conservative. But the opener is a different matter matter altogether, with the Symphony inviting swing revivalist Big Bad Voodoo Daddy for a program that aims "to have to have you swinging in the aisles." Getting a Symphony to "swing" seems a dubious proposition. But BBVD has been pulling this off with symphonies since 2005, blending a goateed brand of retro swing into the symphony repertoire on the strength of a program mixing big band jazz, jump blues and crooner ballads. $25-$85, 8pm Fri-Sat, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624
