Big Daddy Billy Cade made his Twin Cities debut striding onto stage in a black tux and carrying his black and white Lucille style guitar. Before his long set of the King of the Blues music, he heated up the large crowd at Famous Dave's with a tight set of smoking blues featuring his hot, expressive guitar, strong, husky vocals, and a large, tight backing band. Having two veteran keyboard players on B-3 and electronic keyboards, three talented sax players, a capable bass player, and a talented, energetic young drummer made for a great ensemble sound. Big Daddy captured the entire rooms right away with his playing and his presence. Kicking things off with "Looking for a New Kind of Love" his smoking guitar and strong, passionate vocals had the crowd responding with enthusiasm. Big Daddy can play blues classics funky with his own spin, as he did on "Sweet Home Chicago" by using the wah-wah peddle and stinging, driving guitar licks backed by great B-3 organ playing by James "Hurricane" Hackney and the swinging edge of his three horns. Big Daddy can also play it straight-forward, as on the Albert King classic "I Play the Blues for You." Big Daddy has great tone with his stinging guitar riffs, playing some nice, hard hitting, soulful notes that would have pleased Albert.
