In 2013 Boxkar was chosen to represent Hard Rock Café Chicago in a global competition and Boxkar placed 5th out of 12,000 bands worldwide!
Their third album, "Can You Hear Me", was released September 2012, which has brought their sales to over 10,000 albums and 50,000 downloads. True performers who love what they do, Boxkar connects with every audience, every show!
“There are so many bands, so many artists, songwriters, producers, in this fabulously wonderful crazy industry, but one thing that hits you above all with BOXKAR is that, these guys are all of the above! This is one solid structured band of knowledge, talent, passion for their art and above all, lyrics and a soul to their music that stirs anyone who hears their work or are fortunate enough to see them live! They are electric! Plus some of the most decent people you'll meet in the music business - humbleness and humility go a long way. ” -C L A I R E H A N S O N Artist Assistant to Mr Lionel Richie
“Boxkar is the real thing! A great band in the classic tradition of rock and roll bands. The songs are infectious, the players are very strong and Chris Szebeni (front man) is a superstar in the making. ” -Monty Powell-CMA Award Winning Producer Writer of seven #1 songs
“It's been a long time since I have seen a band with this much promise. Everything needed to be a player in todays music market is rooted in this band from Wisconsin. I am completely confident that given the right opportunity, Boxkar will be performing and recording music on a mass level.” -Bob Destocki Former A&R Director for Electra/Asylum Promotions
"Boxkar is what rock and roll is supposed to be, straight up and hard driving! I have to be careful when listening going down the road or I'm doing 90 miles an hour. Great Stuff!" -John Cooper, FOH Engineer, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Sheryl Crow
