For our March JIVE PARTY we’re thrilled to welcome back The Cadillac Kings to the Rivoli stage.
Tailor-made for the Rivoli Ballroom, the Cadillac Kings are firm favourites on both the blues & jump-jive scenes. Six of the UK’s top blues & roots musicians, playing hell for leather on the Rivoli stage – a recipe for an unforgettable night if you love to jive and swing your feet to rhythm n blues. The Cadillac Kings play music inspired by the sounds and styles of the ’40s & ’50s, with a mix of mostly original songs and a few well-chosen covers from the likes of T-Bone Walker, Roy Brown & Champion Jack Dupree.
“Now here’s that rare thing – a British band who can cut the mustard! Powered along by a top class rhythm section, with wild harp and standout guitar. Stick in their authentic hollering vocalist and you’ve got a pretty hot combo! They’re good!!” – Ken Smith, Red Lick Records
“Breath-taking West Coast swing, hugely enjoyable with brilliant vocals, excellent harp, guitar and keyboards and a rock solid rhythm section. In a word – exhilarating!” Lionel Ross, Blues in Britain Magazine (Dragon Blues Fest. Wrexham)
“Entertaining, authentic & infectious – The Cadillac Kings’ high energy swinging R&B is enough to put a foaming head on a pint of real ale! This is pure good time music that left The Darlington Arts Centre audience dizzy, long after they’d left the building.”
Darrell Parsons, Blues in Britain
“The Cadillac Kings have amassed a large following which is entirely down to their own special brand of no-nonsense musicianship and sheer hard work. On-stage you get nothing less than 100 % from this band. These guys swing like they were born in the trees!”
Judge Jones, Blues Freepress, Hull
As usual the evening starts with a jive class aimed at beginners, followed by a DJ set, two sets from the band and a final hour of DJ’ing to 1am.
