Do you like those swinging, 40’s/50’s inspired, West Coast blues so beloved by harp players like James Harman, Rod Piazza and Lynwood Slim? Are you thrilled by tone, phrasing and sheer creativity of guitarists like Junior Watson and Alex Schultz? Do you love the slick humour and hip jive talk that Rick Estrin and James Harman invest their lyrics with? If so, you’ll love THE CADILLAC KINGS! The irrepressible Mike Thomas is, as ever, lead vocalist and entertainer, as well as producing stinging slide guitar on occasions. Gary Potts will be blowing terrific chromatic harmonica and taking lead vocals on some songs.
