BlackJack Cadillac: the Ayrshire group was about to rock the lights of Ardrossan

Members of the band BlackJack Cadilac confirmed this morning that they will no longer play on Ardrossan’s Christmas lights switch as a number of band members have fallen ill.

The rest of the event will continue as planned.


A rock band from NORTH Ayrshire are set to perform as the Ardrossan Christmas lights come on.

BlackJack Cadillac is a group of five musicians formed by members of Irvine, Kilwinning, Ardrossan and West Kilbride.

Recently headlining two local concerts, the band performed at the Ardrossan Music Experience before performing at Ayr’s Venue 38.

Group lead singer Claire Wolffe told the Herald: “We made the crowd dance and cheer and had a fantastic night at Venue 38, it’s a beautiful place.

“During the lockdown, Gee and I did live acoustic sets via Facebook, streaming to an online festival band that I help moderate, with over 177,000 people watching from around the world.

“We launched our group’s Facebook page and so far we seem to have a good following with people watching our videos and wanting to see us play.

“We love to interact with all the fans because we fully appreciate any support.

“We all have very different and unique styles and personalities, but somehow we blend in very naturally and seem to know how to play together effortlessly, that’s when you know. that’s fair.

“We all share the same passion for music and for writing songs.”

With Christmas returning to its traditional celebrations after Covid-19 caused widespread cancellations across the country, the Ardrossan Xmas Lights On and Santa Parade will take place at Castle Hill Car Park before the lights come on at Ardrossan Civic Center.

BlackJack Cadillac will then participate in the musical festivities.

“We think there is a very strong music scene here in Ayrshire, but funding and support can be hard to come by,” continued Claire.

“There are so many talented bands and solo musicians working hard to bring music and entertainment all over Ayrshire, if we could all come together to create something big every year we should make it happen.

“We were very honored to have been invited to play at the Ardrossan Christmas Lights Switching on.

“Bringing the community together is so important, and we’re more than happy to help.

“We’re excited to get up and play with the community this year! ”
