About Us
Playing a consistently busy schedule of club dates, private parties, and special events since
1983, the Cauc's performance is now tighter and more exciting than ever. Numerous repeat
bookings and thousands of satisfied fans and clients proclaim the Caucasians' ability to rise to
any occasion.

Countless fans still remember the Caucasians' gig as the house band for the popular Morning
Zoo with John De Bella on Philadelphia radio station WMMR. Their energy and musical chops,
as well as their spontaneity, won them the chance to "rock the house" starting at 6 AM and back
up an impressive list of recording stars, comedians and celebrities, including Southside Johnny,
Warren Zevon, Gregg Allman, Alan King, and Sinbad.

At the birthday party for Willard Rouse, builder of One Liberty Place, Philadelphia's tallest
building, the Caucs performed on the top floor of the then-uncompleted building!

Inevitably, the Caucs have found their way into millions of homes on local and national TV
Featured on WPVIs AM Philadelphia, they performed with comedian Big Daddy Graham. They
provided musical backup in commercials for KYW Sports announcers Lou Tilley and Ukie
Washington and played "Heartbreak Hotel" on a public service announcement for the Women's
Humane Society.

The Caucs were especially pleased to perform at the Inaugural Ball of their good friend and
former mayor, Ed Rendell. At his invitation, the Caucs kept the party rollin' in Washington, DC,
at the Pennsylvania Democratic Committee's party for the National Democratic Party.
The bipartisan Caucasians also rocked with the Florida and Michigan Republicans during their
2000 National Convention here in Philadelphia!

Nationally, the Flamin' Caucasians performed house band duties for two popular shows: ESPN's
Lighter Side of Sports, working with Jay Johnstone and well-known sports celebrities; and the
syndicated Morton Downey Show with location shoots from Atlantic City to Detroit to Harlem's
legendary Apollo Theatre in New York. At the Apollo, the Flamin' Caucasians found themselves
keeping the peace playing "Walk, Don't Run" while police quelled a near-riot sparked by an on-
stage dispute between Reverend Al Sharpton and Roy Innes!

The Flamin ' Caucasians are the band of choice for private, corporate, fundraising, and political
special events. Here are some of the organizations and happenings that have rocked and rolled
with the Caucs:

As a club attraction, the Caucasians continue to be a solid headline act as well as an opener for
many national recording artists. The band is comfortable with any age group. They are the
natural choice for weddings, festivals and fairs!

The Caucs ' repertoire includes hundreds of songs ranging from very old to brand new — Nat King
Cole, the Four Tops, the Clash, and Smashmouth are among the many artists covered.

The band loves and respects the music it plays and shares this enthusiasm with its audience,
