w/ Charles “Tuna” Dennis: B.B. King’s Rhythm Guitarist

About Billy Big Daddy Cade:

Billy Big Daddy Cade’s natural guitar talent & soaring voice had proven worthy to the legend B.B. himself so much so that he was officially sanctioned & brought on to work at “Legends” B.B. Kings Nightclub in Las Vegas, in their world wide review as the one and only B.B. King. “Cade has the look, has the voice, and his guitar style is as close to the real thing that one could ask for. When this man takes the stage, Cade Is B.B. King!” said the Las Vegas Sun. “Big Daddy” feels God gave him a gift to play the guitar and enjoys entertaining his friends, family and fans. He is always appreciative of his fans and spends many hours working with and encouraging young musicians to find their way into the blues.

About Charlie “Tuna” Dennis:

Before hooking up with B.B. King Charles Dennis, or “Charlie Tuna’ as he is often called, performed with the Legendary soul bluesman Bobby “Blue” Bland. He also led his own band which was a Las Vegas Blues mainstay for many years, but it is his fourteen year stint as the rhythm guitarist for the King of the Blues, Mr. B.B. King which brought Charles Dennis in front of countless sold out shows across the country and placed him on some of the biggest stages in the world including the Royal Albert Hall. Charles was the second and final rhythm guitar player for the King and performed upwards of 250 gigs a year almost up to the King’s passing in 2015.
