One lucky Bookmans.com reader will win a pair of passes to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 17 at The Rialto Theatre in Tucson.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

“The goal with every album is to take the listener on a unique journey and the process this time involved choosing from my originals and a handful of covers we thought would fit the spirit of where the project seemed headed,” says band leader Scotty Morris. “We feel like we left Cab and started thinking about Don Draper and Mark Twain and along the way some fascinating ideas emerged that turned Rattle Them Bones into a real celebration of the landscape of American music we love so much.”
