The Cadillac Tramps
are a little slice of Southern California punk history, straight from the Kids of the Black Hole era. Heavy riffs, tongue in cheek lyrics, pop-punky vocals, dual guitars, and a legendary live show are sure to please punks of any age. With ties to all the greats, including Manic Hispanic and Social Distortion, these hardworking boys have covered a lot of ground in the last few decades. They've broken up, gotten back together, and continued to tour despite band tension, tragedy, and line up changes. One thing remains the same -- the Tramps aren't afraid to put on one hell of a show. Singer Mike Gaborno (of Manic Hispanic) dons dark sunglasses and rules the mic, indulging a little skanking here and there across the stage, while guitarist Jonny "2 Bags" Wickersham (of US Bombs) looks forever young in his classic punk rock stance. The Cadillac Tramps are badass old punks who play blues-tinged rockabilly, and sweat it out every night on stage with the energy of teenagers. They've been working the road for so long (and it definitely shows in every performance), it's hard to believe they aren't as famous as many of their SoCal contemporaries. Get ready to shake your hips, pump your fists in the air, and drink in the energy of the Cadillac Tramps.
