The CADILLAC BLUES BAND was morphed in late 2008 by Rick Cloutier, Keith Donnagan, Joe Delling and Timothy Speck. We were playing at a local open mich one night at the club LAVA ROCK in Montgomery TX. The owner offered us a permanent gig, hence, The Cadilac Blues Band was born. Of the original four, two still remain: Rick and Keith. Occasionally Joe and Tim join in. Tim, the bass player, is working hard as a single dad; and Joe Delling, former drummer, now runs lights and sound as well as backs up on the drums.
From the age of 14, Rick has played in several bands. He took a break from the band for a few years to fly Jets for a few of the major airlines and is currently flying Boeing 767s for CONTINENTAL / United Airlines. A big shout-out to the man who got Rick back into music, Mike Blackey and the BLACKEY AND THE BULLETS band from Houston, Texas.
Keith Donnagan, a seasoned guitarist with several albums to his credit, founded and managed an all-girl band called OUR DARK QUEEN.
The Band is very proud to introduce our amazing new drummer and a great friend – Mr. Bob Powell. Bob, a polished professional musician, also toured with the legendary THREE DOG NIGHT…nuff said.
Rick Stagner, a versatile, experienced musician, made his living for years as a hired gun with a bass guitar for several texas bands. Rick still brings our favorite fan, the forever young lady we all call. “MOM”
The CADILLAC BLUES BAND has played shows, festivals and clubs from New Braunfels up to Huntsville and down to Houston; from the “cowboy clubs” ( yes, behind the chicken wire..( as in “here comes another bottle.. “DUCK” !! ); to the sports bars and the rock and blues clubs.
We have 14 original songs mixed in with our popular covers of artists such as Clapton, AC/DC, ZZ Top, BB King,Tom Petty, Dewight Yokum, Johnny Cash, Elmore James and Howlin Wolf.
We love to play whenever and wherever. For us it all about the Music and our great fans.
