Cash Box Kings Alive at The Acorn - CD Release Party!
Friday, Jun. 14 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)
Traditional blues innovators The Cash Box Kings celebrate the release of their new Alligator Records CD, Hail To The Kings! at The Acorn! Co-led by real-deal Chicago blues vocalist and songwriter Oscar Wilson and Madison, Wisconsin-based songwriter, harmonica master, and singer Joe Nosek, the band plays brilliantly raw and unvarnished house-rocking blues. Wilson’s huge, gritty vocals and Nosek’s powerhouse harmonica fuel their razor-sharp original songs.
With deep feeling, boundless energy, and top-shelf talent, they 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.
