Red Voodoo is a Sammy Hagar and The Waboritas album. When Hagar finished touring in support of his Marching To Mars album, he recorded this record. Red Voodoo is really an extension of the party atmosphere that permeated Hagar's concerts on that tour and this album has that whimsical party vibe. "Mas Tequila" was the lead single and it almost served as a commercial for Hagar's other career endeavor, as his Cabo Wabo tequila was being distributed throughout the United States. The cover of this album even features a glass of Waborita that Hagar spent a portion of his concerts creating on stage during his last tour.[citation needed]
