About the Band

Cadillac Wreckers play Swinging American Blues Dance Music with an urbane, vintage feel. Uptempo Jumps, Swings and Stomps from The Kings, The Walters, The Juniors and The Slims - and our own original danceable tunes. Our musical approach is steeped in the traditional roots of vintage Jazz, Blues, Swing and R&B. Listeners find our music sounds contemporary and familiar, yet somehow reminiscent of the dance halls, speakeasies and juke joints of an era past, and always respectful of this precious musical tradition.

Guitarist Dana Duplan and Harmonica player Dane Terry founded the 'Wreckers to play music born from the classic sides they love, combined with their own arrangements and energy. They sprinkled in a good mix of tunes from artists like Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Guitar Slim, Louis Jordan, Charles Brown, T-Bone Walker, Little Walter, Hound-dog Taylor, Howlin' Wolf, Amos Milburn, George "Harmonica" Smith, Willie Dixon and others. Before long, they started collaborating on original blues music together.
