Fabulous Ben Rice Band To Play Festival PreLaunch Party June 9

Have you heard yet that the fabulous Ben Rice is bringing his band here on June 9? Still in his late 20s, Ben (from Portland) is on his way to the top echelon of blues guitarists/vocalists. After standout performances at the 2015 Boise Blues Festival and 2016 Blues and Bones, and a sold-out show of his own in Fall of 2015, Ben was an obvious choice for our first Festival PreLaunch Party, as we enter a summer of music & fun! https://www.facebook.com/events/413064532411126/

Watch here for special announcements soon about this PreLaunch event, at Playhouse Boise. This party will likely sell out ahead of time, because Ben alone is more than worth the price of admission! Get your advance tickets now for just $15. BBS is keeping great live blues affordable! ben-rice.eventbrite.com

THE ANDY T BAND

The Andy T band was clearly a highlight at the 2016 Boise Blues Festival, with Andy’s top notch guitar skills leading the way. Now, we bring the band back for their own indoor show, accompanied by new vocalist Alabama Mike. It’s going to be another terrific Boise Blues Society show.

ENTER ALABAMA MIKE

Upon Nick Nixon’s 2016 retirement, Andy T and the band enlisted “Alabama Mike” Benjamin as lead singer. Mike is a dynamic, energetic vocalist who strongly connects with his audience. The group has been extremely well received, a highlight being the 2016 King Biscuit Festival.

Alabama Mike is a true force on the microphone with his first rate, church house tenor. He delivers a sound that will remind you of a young BB King, Buddy Guy, Elmore James, and Little Johnny Taylor.

This pairing is a force to be reckoned with and will not disappoint. This is one of the best touring bands on the circuit and a collaboration that cannot be missed! The band recently completed a new album, produced by longtime friend and often time band member, Anson Funderburgh, who himself played a BBS show this past September.

” Alabama Mike is a true star, he’s one of my absolute favorites”. –Rick Estrin of “Rick Estrin and The Nightcats”

…Andy’s stinging guitar chops are fabulous…throughout their CD…They will rock your world.” –Robert K. Oermann/Music Row
“This band swings oh so soulfully! Traditional blues lovers listen up – your blues is here as fresh as ever.” — Jim Hynes, Elmore Magazine
