The Cadillac Kings have got it all – A guitar player whose T-Bone Walker licks and cranky chordings sound as natural as his piercing slashing south Louisiana sound. A harp player who can make it bark and yelp and still get soulful in the solos. A rhythm section that adds a rich lushness to the whole thing. A piano player whose main aim in life is to shorten the gap between New Orleans and Los Angeles, and a vocalist who sounds like he’s having a natural ball on each and every tune.
Ken Smith, Red Lick Magazine

Featuring six of the UK’s top blues & roots musicians, The Cadillac Kings play music inspired by the sounds and styles of the ’40s & ’50s. A mix of mostly original songs with a few well-chosen covers from the likes of T-Bone Walker, Roy Brown & Champion Jack Dupree have made the band firm favourites on both the blues & jump-jive scenes. They are tailor made for the Rivoli Ballroom.

“With their stunning musicianship & exciting stage act, this is a band that knows how to entertain audiences across the board, from arts centres to dance-halls, from intimate clubs to major festivals.”

“The U.K.’s finest purveyors of blues & swing” Blues in Britain Magazine
