Get To Know The Cadillacs, appearing at Max’s Kansas City’s 50th Anniversary Benefit – A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Lou Reed

The”Cadillacs” formed as high school friends in Westfield NJ. We had a fascination with glam rock Bowie, Mott The Hoople, Iggy Pop and of course Lou Reed. Fell in love with Transformer and Rock N Roll Animal. First gig was in 1974! The band has played in clubs and parties. We have a cult-like following and are known for our renditions of Sweet Jane and Rock N Roll. For this gig our lead guitarist Richy Stano was not available but as fortune would have it Chieli Manucci was available. Chieli actually toured with Lou Reed and was the lead guitarist at Farm Aid with Lou. Brian Kelly plays second guitar, Pete Best on Drums, Clint Bahr (named one of the top ten bass players in the world and most notably with his work with Flash and extensive session work), and myself, Andrew Kowalczyk, on lead vocals and provocateur.
