Billy Price has been thrilling east coast audiences with his brand of rhythm and blues for the past three decades. In his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA., he is an institution. Price’s popularity isn’t hard to explain. As Geoffrey Himes of the Washing Post has written, “Unlike so many blues revivalists, Price is not an imitation of older, better singers–he’s the real thing.”
Billy Price first attracted national attention during his three-year association with guitarist Roy Buchanan. Price is the vocalist on two of Buchanan’s LP’s. With Buchanan, Price tour the U.S. and Canada, playing such venues as Carnegie Hall in New York, the Newport Jazz Festival, the Roxy and the Troubadour in Los Angeles, and the Spectrum in Philadelphia.
Price formed The Billy Prince Band in 1990. In addition to performing popular songs from Price’s years with Buchanan and the Keystone Rhythm Band, the Billy Price Band Features new interpretations of blue, R&B, and soul classics.
