Bluesday Tuesday with Cash Box Kings
This is the best blues bargain in town. Blues' favorite DJ TOM MARKER hosts an evening (first Tuesday of the month) of blues music sponsored by Revolution Brewing and WDCB's Blues Time with Tom Marker. The band performs two sets and Tom will play blues selections before the show and during breaks.
CASH BOX KINGS: With deep feeling and top shelf talent, houserocking blues masters The Cash Box Kings play tough, real deal classic Chicago blues with boundless energy. They also deliver raw, passionate Delta blues, jumping proto rock ‘n’ roll, and steamrolling “bluesabilly,” their original mix of Chicago blues and Memphis rockabilly. As anyone who has ever been to one of the band’s raucous performances will testify, The Cash Box Kings know how to throw a party. They’re fueled by the powerhouse harmonica work of Madison, Wisconsin-based songwriter Joe Nosek and the huge, gritty vocals of Chicago bluesman Oscar Wilson. Their original songs range from humorous stories of Internet love to harrowing tales of Chicago’s violent gun epidemic. Every song they perform — be it a striking original or a scorching Chess, Sun or Vee-Jay cover — explodes with contemporary authority and radiates old-school authenticity. According to Grammy Award-winning blues legend Charlie Musselwhite, “The Cash Box Kings play with real taste and feel. Not only is it good blues but it’s a jumping good time, too! I ain’t lyin’!”
