Ben Rice & The Youth of Blues is a band that was formed four years ago to provide an outlet for a group of kids that wanted to expand on the type of music that was being played by their school's jazz band ensembles. Ben and Daniel Rice decided they would listen and play music from Blues Legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King. John Lee Hooker, Eric Clapton and others, to help keep the music they love alive and bring it to their contemporaries.

 

The band has played at small festivals and coffee shops locally for four years. They now have a good demo CD and are currently working on their debut CD with 7 original songs! The whole band is involved in the song writing process and each member adds things that give their compositions a signature touch.

They will be performing at The Seward Park Amphitheater Sunday Sept. 12, 2004 as part of Seattle Peace Concerts' 24th Annual free summer park concert series and food bank benefits. For info. www.seapeace.org/events.html
