Event Details

A rare UK visit from one of the top stomping Chicago blues bands there is…..THE CASH BOX KINGS! Catch this great American line up at this exclusive London show.

Hailing from the ‘Windy City (and signed to the fabled Blind Pig label) 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 20’s and 30’s. But these illustrious torch bearers also add a bravado, energy and freshness to the mix that results in a distinctive 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 40’s and 50’s.

“This band has taken old school Chicago blues and brought it jumping and hollering into the 21st century. I’ve seen a lot of bands play this style of music, but I gotta say you guys take that old school sound and go somewhere new with it.” Dan Ackroyd

The Cash Box Kings are fronted by Joe Nosek, channeling the spirits of Little Walter and Slim Harpo on harmonica, singer and songwriter Oscar Wilson, a 6’3”, 300 hundred pound Muddy Waters-type throwback to the heyday of the Chicago blues scene and Joel Paterson (guitar, vocals).

Joining the Kings and wearing their honorary crowns for this European tour, are ace UK rhythm section of Orlando Shearer (bass) and Peter Greatorex (drums).
