Cash Box Kings Live from Chess Records!
Chess Records (The Willie Dixon Blues Heaven Foundation) made the official announcement Saturday night on WGN Radio that they're bringing back their long-lost recording studio! Cash Box Kings hosted the event alongside WGN's Nocturnal Journal with Dave Hoekstra. Chess produced some of the best records in American Music History; Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Buddy Guy, Etta James, The Rolling Stones, Willie Dixon and so much more. I had the distinct privilege to record about 30mins with the band inside the studio and they had an engineer track the whole show to tape! I spoke with Jackie Dixon afterwards and said "I played bass in your father's house tonight and I did not take it lightly!" She laughed, gave me a hug and told me to come back soon.
