The Cadillac Kings
at Garston Royal British Legion
Friday 25th November 2011 (doors: 8pm, show: 8.45pm)
The swinging bluesmen from Essex are one of the brightest jewels in the UK blues crown. Fronted by inspired songwriter Mike Thomas on excellent vocals and sporadic slide guitar, the band also boasts an equally splendid array of talent in the shape of Gary Potts on harmonica, Mal Barclay on guitar, Eric Ranzoni on keyboards, Roy Webber on drums and Paul Cuff on double bass.
Their individual and collective brilliance is further enhanced by their unfailing ability to put on a performance, with warmth and humour exuding from their every pore. In short, they are an absolute delight. This is the band’s first appearance on the JoLo series of superlative gigs but public demand will guarantee that it won’t be their last.
Garston Royal British Legion is situated at Haig House, Woolton Road, Garston, Liverpool L19 5NQ, close to Liverpool South Parkway station. Tickets for the concert (£12 each in advance and £13 on the door) are obtainable from John Welsh on 0151 428 2855 or from www.johnnysbluesclub.co.uk.
