Bellevue Cadillac – Kings of Swing
BELLEVUE CADILLAC, THE 8 PIECE NEOSWING BAND FROM NEW ENGLAND FIRST APPEARED ON THE SCENE IN 1991. DRESSED IN PERIOD SUITS, HATS AND SPATS, THE BAND LOOKED OUT OF TIME AND PLACE IN A SEA OF GRUNGE AND PLAID, BUT THAT WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE.
IN 1998 THE WORLD CAUGHT THE SWING THING FROM A SERIES OF GAP ADS, AND BELLEVUE CADILLAC BECAME THE KINGS OF SWING. THE SUMMER OF SWING FEATURED BANDS SUCH AS BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY, BRIAN SETZER, CHERRY POPPIN’ DADDIES AND ROYAL CROWN REVUE ALL OF WHICH ENDED UP ON THE PLATINUM SELLING CD OF THE YEAR, SWING THIS BABY!.

ROLLINGSTONE MAGAZINE), (pick of the week,…..PEOPLE MAGAZINE) …..(best band in the land…..ACCESS HOLLYWOOD), (one day you may see Bellevue Cadillac in the rock & roll hall of fame)….CNN SHOWBIZ TONITE, (the underground leaders of the neoswing movement….
