Fearless, full-tilt Chicago blues...fervent vocals and soaring harmonica." Chicago Tribune

"Singer Oscar Wilson and singer-harpist Joe Nosek are are experts in classic Chicago groovesperfectly evoking Muddy and Little Walterbut they also enchant with original songs both funny and pointed." MOJO (UK)

"Oscar Wilsons powerful and deep voice harkens back to the golden age of Chicago blues. Nosek blows spirited, muscular harp. The Cash Box Kings serve up undeniable proof that they remain one of the top blues bands of this era." Blues Music Magazine

The Cash Box Kings, according to Living Blues magazine, are one of the best blues bands in the land. The group, co-led by real-deal Chicago blues vocalist and songwriter Oscar Mr. 43rd Street Wilson, and Madison, Wisconsin-based songwriter, harmonica giant and singer Joe Nosek, plays masterfully raw, unvarnished, old-school ensemble blues. Wilsons huge, emotive vocals and Noseks blistering harmonica fuel their razor-sharp original songs and always incisive reinvention of obscure blues classics. AllMusic says The Cash Box Kings offer up an enthusiastic celebration of Chicago blues in all of its electric forms...funny and smart...slow grooves and hyper-charged shuffles. The Cash Box Kings dont merely pay homage to the past, they bring tradition into the present [and deliver] a rollicking good time.
