Billy Price Band

Roots and Blues 2018 Performing Artist

Bluesy Soul

Billy Price has been entertaining audiences since first performing in Pittsburgh, Pa. with the Rhythm Kings in the early 1970s. In April 2016, he was officially recognized and inducted as a Pittsburgh Rock ’n Roll Legend at an award ceremony sponsored by the Cancer Caring Center of Pittsburgh. Price’s popularity and longevity in his adopted hometown and elsewhere aren’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), Tom Valentine (bass), Dave Dodd (drums), Jimmy Britton (keyboards), and Eric DeFade (tenor sax).
