A small band with a huge sound! Richie and the Catillacs play a mixture of vintage rock-n-roll, authentic blues, classic country and rockabilly. The Vancouver Washington based Catillacs wow the audience with its multi-talented line-up. Their performances feature searing guitar from Richie Bean, masterful boogie-woogie piano, gospel organ and solid bass lines from Leon Holder, and the driving drums of "Bad Daddy" Dave Whittaker. All three are great singers and take their turns at singing lead as well as harmony and background vocals.

They've opened for legendary bluesman Curtis Salgado , Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts, Smokin' Joe Kubeck, Walter Trout, Little Charlie & the Nightcats, and many more.
