Feast with the Beasts at the Houston Zoo on Nov 3

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will perform at the Houston Zoo’s 12th annual Feast with the Beasts on Friday, Nov. 3. From 7-11 p.m., the evening promises to be an unforgettable night where attendees can eat, drink and jam out to some of the band’s biggest hits all while enjoying the animals at the zoo.

Feast with the Beasts is one of the Houston’s most anticipated events for animal and culinary lovers alike. Guests can sample food and drinks from more than 60 of Houston’s hottest restaurants as well as special animal presentations throughout the zoo.

Tickets are $129 and VIP tickets are available for $199, which allows the guest access to the Bud Light Lounge with private patio seating and special animal experiences and activities. Guests must be at least 21 years of age to attend.

This year marks the 24th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the music scene. Since its formation in the early ’90s in California, the band has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average over 150 shows a year, and has produced a sizable catalog of recorded music including popular songs such as “Go Daddy-O,” “You & Me & the Bottle Makes 3 Tonight (Baby)” and “Mr. Pinstripe Suit.”

The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and Dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture.

Launched in the fall of 2006 as a fundraiser for the Houston Zoo, Feast with the Beasts was an instant hit. The zoo’s naturally wild environment and 6,000 animals offer an unprecedented venue for this wine, beer and food event.

The Houston Zoo is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to connect communities, inspiring action to save wildlife. Fundraising is essential to the Houston Zoo, and it could not continue its mission without support from the Houston community. By attending Feast with the Beasts, you help support the Houston Zoo. Money raised goes to the Houston Zoo’s conservation, education, and animal care programs.

The zoo is at 6200 Hermann Park Drive. For more information, view houstonzoo.org.
