In 2001 VooDou expanded it's roster to include Ben Buchanan on Drums, Billy Miller on Bass, and Jeff Winfrey on Guitars to have a solid line up for live performances. After playing small shows and venues VooDou opened up for Godhead, Gravity Kills, and Pigface in Nov 2001 at the Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte NC.
