Chicago blues outfit The Cash Box Kings have announced an April 28th, 2015 release date for Holding Court, the award-winning band's third album for Blind Pig Records. Holding Court continues the Kings' tradition of blending old-school roots 'n' blues from the 1940s and '50s with a contemporary sound and energy. With Holding Court, The Cash Box Kings pay tribute to some of the founding fathers of contemporary blues with raucous covers of classic songs from giants like Jimmy Rogers ("Out On The Road") and John Lee Hooker ("Hobo Blues"), as well as tunes from lesser-known but no less important artists like Big Smokey Smothers ("I Ain't Gonna Be No Monkey Man") and Honey Boy Allen ("I'm A Real Lover Baby"). The album also features a raft of original material that skillfully blends a variety of roots sounds with Chicago blues tradition.
