The Shaddicts

The Shaddicts -- America's only Shadows tribute band -- opened the show. In the swinging London scene of the 1960s, Cliff Richard's backup band the Shadows was the British equivalent of the Ventures -- a masterful instrumental group with a style all its own. A righteous cult has grown around their hits such as "Apache," "Man of Mystery," "Kon-Tiki" and many others. The Shaddicts, or the "Shadows Addicts," are a group of guitar geeks beyond compare, from their matching Burns Hank Marvin guitars and basses to their matching Vox AC30 amps!
