Cash Box Kings at Mineral Point Opera House July 7th
The Cash Box Kings will be performing at the Mineral Point Opera House on Friday, July 7th at 7PM. Tickets for this show are all general admission and cost $20. Doors will open at 6PM.
Hailing from the 'Windy City,' Blind Pig recording artists the Cash Box Kings are keeping REAL DEAL, old-school Chicago blues alive and thriving. The band is dedicated to carrying on the spirit of the 1940's and 50's post-war Chicago blues sound as well as the Delta blues music of the 20s and 30s. But these illustrious torch bearers also add a bravado, energy and freshness to the mix that results in a distinctive musical experience and a high-energy stage show. With a focus on the raw, stripped-down, ensemble playing that was the hallmark of the post-war sound, the band showcases the music of Chess Records and Sun Records while adding a healthy dose of original music that captures the essence of the Memphis and Chicago blues sounds of the 40s and 50s.
"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. Joe Nosek feels Little Walter and Slim Harpo in the essence of his soul. Singer Oscar Wilson could be right out of [Chicagos famed] Checkerboard Lounge in its glory days. The Cash Box Kings are a dancing and listening pleasure. - Living Blues Magazine
"The Cash Box Kings play with taste and feel and it was faith restoring to know there's guys out there that still know and appreciate real blues."-Blues legend Charlie Musslewhite
