The Cash Box Kings are dedicated to carrying on the spirit of the 1940’s and 50’s post-war blues sound. With performances throughout the United States, South America and Europe, this rockin’ blues band has gained international acclaim. The band showcases the music of blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Big Walter Horton, and have tailored their Rotunda performances to teaching children about this time-honored genre. The group rounds off their musical offerings with a dose of original music that captures the essence of the Memphis and Chicago blues sounds of the 40’s and 50’s. The Cash Box Kings give families an opportunity to dance, sing and even get up on stage to play harmonica. This be-bopping blues party will have the entire family on their feet! Presented as part of Downtown Madison Holiday Open House.
