“A band at the top of their game” Blues Matters Magazine “The UK’s premier blues & roots act” John Clarke, The Times
Inspired by early rhythm & blues styles with a distinctly modern take lyric-wise, this is a band that has earned a reputation for wowing audiences from night clubs to festivals, from theatres to dance halls, the length & breadth of the UK & Europe, from the Canary Islands to the Arctic circle.
Now approaching their 18th anniversary, the Cadillac Kings have signalled their strongest ever line-up, featuring two of the UK’s very best players –sensational pianist & accordionist – Tim Penn, and on guitar the brilliantly versatile Mal Barclay, alongside front man Mike Thomas – ‘the best blues lyricist this side of the Atlantic’ (Blues in the Northwest). The line-up is completed by one of the best rhythm sections to be found anywhere! – Roy Webber on drums and Paul Cuff on double bass.
