Since their last visit to the Eel Pie Club in 2014, the Cadillac Kings have gone from strength to strength. October 2016 saw the release of their 5th album "The Secret of my Success" which quickly ended up on so many playlists that by December it was voted one of the top 3 blues cds of the year by the IBBA (along with Kaz Hawkins and Joe Bonamassa).
Throughout 2017, the cd continued to make inroads into US radio and to the astonishment of the band one of the album tracks reached No. 1 in Cashbox Magazine's Blues and Boogie Chart in September 2017, and stayed there for 4 weeks, holding off acts such as The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Primer, Coco Montoya, Rick Estrin & The Nightcats, Samantha Fish etc.
2018 sees the band celebrating its 18th birthday in the company of relative new 'boy' - the multi-talented Tim Penn (ex Kevin Coyne, Eclection, Gordon Smith Band) on piano, accordion and vocals, alongside ace guitarist Mal Barclay, singer/songwriter Mike Thomas and the top notch rhythm section of double bassist Paul Cuff and drummer Roy Webber.
"Entertaining, authentic and infectious - The Cadillac Kings' high energy R&B is enough to put a foaming head on a pint of real ale!"
