On Friday, February 17, award-winning blues band The Cash Box Kings will premiere a new video for the wickedly sly title track from from their upcoming dynamic Alligator Records album Oscar's Motel (available March 17). The original song, a rousing, non-stop, blues-filled, barbeque-fueled party, made its worldwide debut on SiriusXM's Bluesville channel on February 15 and is now available at all popular streaming and download sites.

According to Living Blues magazine, The Cash Box Kings “are one of the best blues bands in the land.” The group, co-led by Chicago blues vocalist and songwriter Oscar “Mr. 43rd Street” Wilson, and Madison, Wisconsin-based harmonica giant, songwriter and singer Joe Nosek, plays masterfully raw, unvarnished, old-school ensemble blues. According to Nosek, who co-wrote the song with Wilson, "Our goal was to have Oscar’s Motel be a celebration, an open invitation to leave your troubles behind and have a carefree, down-home, good time.”

The full album, Oscar's Motel (the band's third for Alligator and 11th overall), will be available on CD, LP and at all popular streaming and download sites on March 17. On each of the album's 11 tracks, The Cash Box Kings bring contemporary authority and old-school blues authenticity. The band—featuring guitarist Billy Flynn, drummer Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith, bassist John W. Lauler, and keyboardist Lee Kanehira—opens a door into the intoxicating spirit and sounds of 1950s and 1960s Chicago blues, and then they bring it all right up to the minute with Wilson and Nosek’s original, instantly memorable songs.

No matter where The Cash Box Kings perform, they bring the music to fuel the party. Between Wilson’s natural blues vocal power and Nosek’s talent at wringing every last drop of emotion from his harmonica, The Cash Box Kings never fail to wow their longtime fans while earning new ones at every gig. Now, with the new album and tour dates scheduled throughout the year, The Cash Box Kings invite everyone to leave their worries at home and check into Oscar’s Motel, where the music is always just getting started.
