Cash Box Kings:

"One of the best blues bands in the land.  Any of these musicians could have played with the great bands of the golden blues era.  Together they keep a sound alive that many thought was no more.  Joe Nosek feels Little Walter and Slim Harpo in the essence of his soul. Singer Oscar Wilson could be right out of [Chicago’s famed] Checkerboard Lounge in its glory days. The Cash Box Kings are a dancing and listening pleasure.” - Living Blues Magazine

"The Cash Box Kings play with taste and feel and it was faith restoring to know there's guys out there that still know and appreciate real blues."-Blues legend Charlie Musslewhite

"Stylistically the effect of the music parallels coming home from a trip to Maxwell Street with a box of dusty 45s and 78s on labels like Ora-Nelle, Blue Lake, Parrot or Cobra - rough and tumble, meat and potatoes Chicago blues. The Cash Box Kings continue and strengthen their breakout from the Midwestern blues bar circuit to international recognition as recording and performing artists. Notice is duly served that they are ready for inclusion among the illustrious torch bearers for not one but two proud blues traditions [delta and post-war Chicago]. With a deep commitment to those roots and a freshness which has generated nine originals on this CD, the Cash Box Kings are starting to make their own mark."-Dick Shurman, noted blues producer and critic
