"I love everything about being on the road. I love the schedule. I love the hours. I'd play everyday, if I could. Between touring with Colin James, Sass Jordan, and my band, I'm able to keep busy on the road, but when I'm home in Toronto, I still want to play...all the time. That's why you can find me around town...most notably stretchin my blues legs with The Chris Caddell Blues Band on Tuesday nights at Lou Dawg's on King Street and every Sunday at the famed Orbit Room on College Street when myself and the Wreckage become Horshack, playing the best of 70's rock."
The Chris Caddell Blues Band
The Chris Caddell Blues Band grew out of like-minded players Chris, Kenny Neal Jr., and Cassius Pereira wanting to just play. All three have a deep appreciation for many forms of the blues and weren't getting to play the blues on a regular basis so they decided to just get into a rehearsal space and enjoy playing. They picked Tuesday nights and the rest is history. Just about that same time, Lou Dawg's BBQ was looking to have a serious blues night. Like many of the legendary rooms in the states, blues rooms and juke joints often have the coldest beer and the best BBQ. Lou's was no exception, and the Lou's Blues Tuesday was born featuring The Chris Caddell Blues Band.
Horshack rose up out of the ashes of the extremely popular Sunday night Orbit Room phenomena, Stifler's Mom. The boys from the current Wreckage roll back the calender to the 70's (mostly), and absolutely go all out from 11pm-2am. Horshack covers some popular and at times very difficult material from Boston, Pink Floyd, and Led Zepplin to some classic rockers from Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Talking Heads, and Tom Petty. It's quite common for Canadian stars such as Ian Thornley, Gordie Johnson, and Ivana Santilli to show up and sit in with the guys. Canadian guitar great and guitar player for Lady Gaga, Ricky Tillo, when not on the road will often sit in for a whole night. Occasionally, when the crowd demands it, the Wreckage will make an appearance for a song or two and play a few Chris Caddell originals.
