In 1976 The Cadillac Cowboys made their debut in the basement of the Brat Kabin in Eau Claire Wisconsin.
Although most Water Street patrons knew nothing about Willie Nelson or Waylon Jennings at the time, the band was in the right place at the right time. For the next four years, the Cowboys played to full houses at the Brat Kabin and many other area venues. They introduced an entire generation to old-school country artists like Ray Price, Lefty Frissell and Bob Wills, while mixing in emerging country-rock music from groups like Commander Cody, Marshall Tucker, and the New Riders of the Purple Sage.
After nearly 45 years, the Cowboys will reunite at the Pioneer Grill & Saloon on Lake Tainter just north of Menomonie from 3-7pm on Sunday, July 18th. If you didn’t experience the Cadillac Cowboys in the late 70s, ask anyone who did. This reunion will be a day to remember!
