Cadillac Pete - Harmonica and vocals Jim McCarthy - Guitar Mike McCarthy - Guitar Karl Betz - Bass Bill Siebert - Drums Let’s get right down to the point. One of the first questions people always ask is how Pete got to be known as Cadillac Pete. Here is the story. Pete was dubbed “Cadillac Pete” by his fellow musicians for one very good reason.

He is the top of the line in his field. Cadillac is the symbol of American excellence at home and abroad, known for legendary performance, second to none. That description fits Pete to a tee; hence the name, Cadillac Pete. Once you hear him play his harp, you will understand completely.

He has been playing professionally for over 20 years, and has been playing the blues exclusively for 17. He learned his craft from his father Walter so he has actually been playing the whistles since he was four, and it shows. Pete is an international recording artist, having recorded most recently with his own band, The Heat. Previous to that he recorded with Reverend Raven and the Chain Smoking Altar Boys here in Wisconsin.

He was also a regular on Bourbon Street in New Orleans with the incomparable Bryan Lee, with whom he toured the U.S., Europe, South America, and Canada. He also recorded several CDs with Bryan, which include work with Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Frank Marino and James Cotton. Born in Winnepeg, Manitoba, Pete became a Wisconsin resident at the tender age of 2, and has since become one of Milwaukee’s favorite sons. However, technically he is actually a resident of West Allis, and if you meet any of his hometown fans they will be sure to make the distinction! He is a two-time WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) award winner for the best harmonica instrumentalist. You may have seen him at any one of your favorite clubs or festivals including, but not limited to the Montreal Jazz Fest, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Belgium Blues Fest, or our very own Summerfest, as well as Buddy Guys Legends and Luther’s in Madison, Absinthe Bar formerly on Bourbon Street, and locally at the Milwaukee Ale House or the Up and Under, to name a few!!
