WELCOME, BLUES LOVERS!
If you're reading this, you've reached the epicenter of live blues in Southern California!
Every week, we fly in the greatest living blues artists from Texas, Mississippi, Chicago and elsewhere and present them in super-intimate settings that hold less than 100 people. We do this because we believe that blues is tavern music where the audience can really connect with the performer.
If you take the original Antone's in Texas and combine it with B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted in Chicago, then add a few palm trees and 70 degree weather, you get what we are all about.
Starting in Chicago in 1991, and now based in Southern California since 1997, Cadillac Zack has presented thousands of quality blues events for 30 years.
We put an incredible amount of time into making sure every detail is well-thought out. And making sure everyone is happy. And because of that many people have told us that these are the most consistent, high-quality, weekly blues events in the world. My hope is that that you'll agree.
Currently, we are presenting 4 amazing shows per week, every week, all year: Fridays in the Ventura area (8 pm), Saturdays in the Pasadena area (5 pm), Sundays in Long Beach (5 pm), and Mondays in Tarzana (8 pm).
Because we humbly service approximately 20,000 blues fanatics per year - many of whom fly in from all over the world to attend these internationally beloved concerts (thanks to the effect of social media, YouTube etc) - it's a good idea to secure tickets as soon as possible. Many people buy tickets to five or six shows at the same time, and we encourage that.
Please check out our upcoming events, below. and nab tickets by following the instructions at the very bottom of this page.
Thank you so incredibly much for the amazing support of real live music.

HOW TO USE ZELLE TO MAKE EASY PAYMENTS
Zelle is an easy to use feature in your bank app or on your bank’s website, that does bank to bank transfers really easily.
LOG INTO YOUR BANK APP, click on the ZELLE icon, and send money to 323-377-5291. If the app asks for my name, it is Zack Slovinsky.
If you are unable to use Zelle, you can also mail me a check, but please text me for that info. (I'm avoiding Paypal and Venmo due to high fees that they charge. This way more of your money goes to the artists.)
On show day your name will be at will call and I will personally seat you, so please look for me. I'm usually at the front door or seating other people. Thanks!
