July 29th, 2019
The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand is proud to host the Billy Price Charm City Rhythm Band on Sunday, August 4th, 2019, at 8 p.m. Billy Price has been entertaining audiences in Pittsburgh, PA since the early 1970s. Billy 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. Price assembled Billy Price and the Keystone Rhythm Band in 1977. Before their breakup in 1990, the band recorded four critically acclaimed LPs and developed a reputation as one of the most exciting touring bands in the U.S. With the Keystone Rhythm Band, the Billy Price Band, and solo projects, Billy Price has recorded and released a total of 15 albums, CDs, and DVDs. Price’s album This Time for Real, with the late Chicago soul singer Otis Clay, received a 2016 Blues Music Award in the category of Best Soul Blues Album of 2015. 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. His latest album Reckoning, produced by Kid Andersen at Greaseland Studios, was released on June 15, 2018, by Vizztone Label Group. It has been nominated for a 2019 Blues Music Award in the category of Best Soul Blues Album of 2018. His new album Dog Eat Dog, also produced by Andersen, will be released on Gulf Coast Records in August 2019.
“Billy Price’s on-stage passion and professional musicianship electrify every audience that he entertains. We are very excited to bring him back to Rehoboth and have our local crowd enjoy what so many others have come to realize, his amazing talents and passion for high-energy music and the blues,” said Bandstand Program Director, Corey Groll.
