Billy Price, east
coast blue-eyed soul man, has been
entertaining audiences since performing in Pittsburgh, Pa. with the Rhythm Kings in the early 1970s. Price's popularity and longevity in his adopted hometown and elsewhere isn't hard to
explain. As Geoffrey Himes of the Washington Post has written,
"Unlike so many blues revivalists,
Price is not an imitation of better singers; he's the real thing."
Price formed The Billy
Price Band in 1990. Members
of the Billy Price Band are Steve Delach
(guitar), Jason Hollar (bass), Dave Dodd
(drums), Jimmy Britton (keyboards), Joe
Herndon (trumpet), Eric DeFade (tenor
sax), and Bob Matchett (trombone).
Price first attracted national attention
during his three-year association with
guitarist Roy Buchanan. Price is the vocalist
on two of Buchanan's LPs, That's What
I'm Here For and Livestock.
