Big Bad Voodoo Daddy swings by for the Schermer Scholarship fundraiser
The Columbus Bar Foundation’s night with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra to benefit female and minority law students always takes a unique perspective on music, by highlighting female and minority performers and composers of symphonic works.
This year, the Foundation will put the spotlight on a whole different scene, with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy performing swinging hits at the CSO Picnic with the Pops on July 15. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. for an 8:15 performance.
The Foundation is pleased to offer a dinner package for only $125 per person, or $1,000 per table of eight. Use individual tickets or tables to entertain clients, summer associates/clerks or simply enjoy an evening with colleagues and other music lovers to help us to raise money for law school scholarships.
This will be the fifth year that the Foundation has joined with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra to raise money for the Schermer Scholarship Fund. The Fund awards up to $30,000 in scholarships to women and minority law students at OSU and Capital University annually.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy kicked off the swing revival in the mid-1990s with their appearance in the film Swingers and began touring ferociously, delivering killer shows night after night, city after city. Their 2003 disc, Save My Soul, includes the Professor Longhair/Fats Domino groove, “You Know You Wrong,” and the Louis Armstrong inspired “Simple Songs.” Big Bad Voodoo Daddy dons New Orleans rhythms and tones with style. Most recently, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s music was featured in the Disney movie, The Wild.
This event would not be possible without the support community sponsors. Current major sponsors at the $2,500 level are Jones Day; LexisNexis; Terry and Cindy O'Connell; and Time Warner Cable. Any firm or company which buys eight or more tickets will be listed as a co-sponsor. Tables will be filled on a first-reserved basis. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this evening.
