“Hail, Hail, Rock & Roll...!” A classic yet powerful phrase popularized by the great Chuck Berry. To many rock musicians throughout the years, this slogan is still strong and meaningful. However, for the talented trio known as the Cadillac Casanovas, this is not just a slogan, but in fact a way of life. Performing a wide variety of 1950’s Rock & Roll and Rockabilly, the Cadillac Casanovas pull out all of the classic tunes from the decade that dominated juke boxes around the globe while still leaving room for some of the great deep cuts that are rarely heard. From the moment they hit the stage, no one can doubt their dedication to keeping the classics as fresh and vibrant as they were when performed by the masters themselves.
The Cadillac Casanovas have been involved in the local music scene for many years, and have contributed to building a following of dedicated fans eager to attend their shows.
Armed with a nostalgic list of songs from some of the most well-known pioneers of the 1950’s such as Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, and Ricky Nelson, punctuated with unusual historical trivia, the Cadillac Casanovas will captivate any crowd for hours on end.
Authentic sound, vintage look, amazing stage presence and a rendition of the national anthem that would make anyone move their feet…the Cadillac Casanovas are true Guardians of Rock & Roll.
