Based in La Mesa, Cadillac Wreckers bring classic American roots music alive with sophistication, swing, soulful intent, and inventive instrumental improvisations. The band is fronted by guitarist Dana Duplan and harmonica player Dane Terry. Dana's Texas swing influences and vast experience on the stage resonate with Dane’s passionate approach to the blues.
“Our sound,” says Dana, “is built around soulful intent, dynamics, feel, and most of all an honest approach to our favorite musical art form, created right here in America.” A self-titled full-length was released in 2010.
