The Ben Rice Blues Band embarks on their Spring 2020 Tour, with a local performance at the Arcadia Blues Club, 16 E. Huntington Drive, on Saturday, Feb. 22. Showtime is at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $15 if purchased in advance and $20 at the door. For more information, call (626) 447-9349 or visit

Based in Portland, Rice was recognized by his peers as the Sean Costello Rising Star Award Winner by Blues Blast Magazine in 2019. The guitarist/vocalist was also a 2019 Blues Music Awards nominee in three categories. The Cascade Blues Association bestowed four awards on Rice last year: Best Contemporary Act, Best Traditional Blues Act, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Best Electric Guitar.

Rice’s music is rooted in traditional blues, yet at the same time fiercely original. His guitar playing earns labels like “fearless,” “inventive” and “powerful,” and he routinely brings audiences to their feet with his stunning and emotionally honest vocal delivery. Ben is as much home fronting his electric blues band as he is captivating a crowd solo with nothing but his voice and his resonator guitar. Rice drops “Out of the Box,” a Cigar Box Guitar album, this Spring, the follow-up to his most recent album, 2019’s “Wish The World Away.”
