The Chicago Rhythm and Blues Kings have been delighting fans across the United States, Canada and Europe for over twenty years now with their smooth and funky blend of horn-driven blues and soul music. Formerly the Mellow Fellows, CRBK came out of Carbondale, Illinois in the early 1970's as the backing band for the acclaimed Larry "Big Twist" Nolan. Performing music in the great American soul tradition of Ray Charles, Little Milton, Hank Ballard and Junior Parker, Big Twist and the Mellow Fellows released four records on Flying Fish and Alligator before Twist passed away in 1990.

The band released another record on Alligator in 1996 and have continued since to tour nonstop. New singer Ernie Peniston upholds the tradition of dynamic vocalists who have previously fronted the band. Their self-titled Blind Pig Records debut was produced by the legendary Gene "Daddy G" Barge, formerly a songwriter, arranger and staff producer for Chess Records. Gene's many credits include work with Little Milton, Willie Dixon and the Rolling Stones. He also plays some sizzling saxophone solos and sings on three cuts. Gene often performs with the band around Chicago, and makes occasional gigs out of town also. The Chicago Rhythm and Blues Kings are poised and ready to bring their signature brand of Chicago blues, Memphis soul and classic, swinging R&B into the new millennium.
