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 1940s and ’50s 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 40’s and 50’s.
So, who better than Little Mike & the Tornadoes, whose “old Chess Sound” impressed Paul Butterfield himself, to share the night with the Cash Box Kings?
