Cadillac Kings (UK) 

Firm favourites on both the blues & the retro scenes, The Cadillac Kings feature five of the UK's top blues and roots musicians. Their hugely experienced CVs include bands such as Kevin Coyne, Paul Lamb, Otis Grand, James Hunter, Big Joe Louis etc. Inspired by the sounds and styles of the ‘40s & ‘50s with a distinctly modern take lyric-wise, this is a band with a reputation for wowing their audiences, from intimate clubs to major festivals, from theatres to dance-halls, the length & breadth of the UK & Europe, from the Canaries to Spitzbergen in the arctic circle!

Since their formation in 2001 the band has shared stages with, or opened shows for, world class acts such as The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Rod Piazza, Lazy Lester, Magic Slim, Lil' Ed & His Blues Imperials, Louisiana Red, John Mayall, Larry Garner, Nappy Brown, Sherman Robertson, Little Feat & Delbert McLinton to name but a few!

Along the way the band has picked up numerous awards including The Times’ best blues cd of the year 2004 for ‘Highway 17’ (33WM131) and, in 2009, Canada’s ‘Real Blues’ Magazine's award for the best UK blues act & cd for ‘Trouble in Store’ (33WM145). Their 2012 release “Gonna Tell Your Momma” was recorded 100% live in Norway and has had rave reviews in every magazine from ‘Blues in Britain’ to ‘Folk Roots’ to ‘Vintage Rock’, from ‘Blues Blast USA’ to ‘Blues News Norway’!

Having recently achieved their twelth anniversary the band has also signalled their strongest ever line-up, featuring two of the UK's very best instrumentalists – pianist, accordionist & professor of all things New Orleans - Tim Penn, and on guitar the brilliant west coast stylist - Mal Barclay.

Mike Thomas: vocals, harmonica, slide guitar
Mal Barclay: lead guitar, vocals
Tim Penn: piano, accordion, vocals
