Black Cadillac are THE most versatile band you could book! They’ve got the 50’s, 60s covered through to their own take of classic 90’s pop tunes.

Black Cadillac play over 100 gigs a year, including weddings, corporate functions, parties, and festivals here in the UK but also all over the world (Germany, France, Russia, India etc).  Last year they toured with Simply Red! They can go acoustic and play a mixture of Folk, Country and Nashville Rock n Roll, or go all electric and play vintage Pop, Soul, Funk and a scattering of anthems from the 70s - present day.

Looking to find that band which all your guests would love, then look no further. Don’t take our word for it:

“The endless chants of ‘one more song’ were proof of how much we were all loving the tunes and didn’t want the night to end” - James Illingworth

Black Cadillac play a wide array of songs, covering classic music from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, The Kinks, Elvis Presley, The Cure, Madness, and also modern acts such as Adele, George Ezra, Jake Bugg and Florence & The Machine. Even when playing modern songs, they retain a sound of the 50s and 60s, which comes from their love of music from this era.

The band can scale down for daytime events (duo/trio), and scale up for a full evening band (quartet, quintet, sextet).  They can play acoustic or electric (or a mixture of both) and can play themed DJ music in between the live sets. The image of the band marries perfectly with the music, with all members in swinging 60s mod clothing.

Black Cadillac appeared in a 2016 film called 'Youth' starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Jane Fonda and Paul Dano. They also toured Germany with Simply Red in July 2016 and did a large arena tour of Europe in Spring 2017. They have had years of experience in performing for corporate events, festivals, weddings, and music venues.

The band were the highlight of our wedding! They were professional but really good fun! All our guests loved them and they really got the party started. They learned our first dance song which sounded beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend Black Cadillac.

Black Cadillac were a brilliant band at our wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed all of their music and had a really good time dancing to their wide range of songs. Their style was really fun and they always put an interesting spin on some classic tunes. They were very professional and did a fantastic job learning a new song for our first dance. We would definitely recommend them to others. Thanks!

Absolutely brilliant, everyone said how good they were. They arrived on time - there was a mix up with our other singer as to where she was to be placed but this was down to the hotels mistake placing her where Black Cadillac should have been, but they quickly sorted themselves out so there was no issue. They looked really smart loved the image. And, what a polite chap the lead singer is. Very highly recommended, Zoe and Iain

We hired Black Cadillac for our wedding on NYE 2014. They were fantastic. Such a unique band, its great to hear the songs everyone knows and love played with some originality. Not only were their sets great, but they also provided the DJ service and were excellent, kept the dancefloor packed throughout.

Black Cadillac were a fantastic band. Having such a massive age range at a wedding can make choosing a band very difficult but Black Cadillac were the perfect fit. Booking the band was very simple and any requests afterward were dealt with quickly. The band on the night were spot on. They arrived in plenty of time to set up and were very accommodating to a slightly stressed out groom trying to get the room organised. They had everyone up dancing and created a fantastic atmosphere. Cheers guys.

Black Cadillac were a fantastic band to have perform at our wedding. They tailored the music to suit our guests and we received constant praise from our guests for booking such a wonderful band. The lead singer was a delight to talk to prior to the wedding and very professional.

The Black Cadillacs were absolutely fantastic and made our wedding day. They knew exactly which songs to play to get our guests up on the dance floor and created a great atmosphere. They looked great and really fitted the venue. Paul from the band was very professional to deal with in the run up to our big day and always responded promptly to emails. Our guests loved them so much that a few took their card as possible bands for their wedding in the future. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a lively, authentic and unique band.
