The Cash Box Kings
Presented by Crazy Mamas Concerts and WCBE
- This event has passed.
Hailing from the ‘Windy City,’ Alligator Recording artists The Cash Box Kings are keeping REAL DEAL, old-school Chicago blues alive and thriving. With their top shelf musicianship and trademark good humor, The Cash Box Kings are a one-of-a-kind blues band and bona fide blues royalty. In the words of MOJO magazine, the band is “flawless.”
Mixing tough Chicago and Delta blues, jumping proto-rock ‘n’ roll, R&B, soul and steamrolling “bluesabilly” (their original mix of Chicago blues and Memphis rockabilly), they attack every song they play with contemporary authority and old school authenticity.
“One of the best blues bands in the land. Any of these musicians could have played with the great bands of the golden blues era. Together they keep a sound alive that many thought was no more.” – Living Blues Magazine
“Unflinching blues distilled to its essence and steeped in tradition.”-Chicago Tribune
“One of the top blues bands of this era.”- Blue Music Magazine
“The Cash Box Kings rule the roost!”- Dan Aykroyd
