Joe & Vicki Price

Fri, Feb 20 – $12

Iowan Joe Price’s old-school guitar blues sounds like nothing else. The rhythms bounce and hop like a super-ball on caffeine—at times, it sounds like two or three guitars at once, but it’s all just Joe slapping and hammering those strings, layering vibrations and tones over each other into this heady cocktail of joyous musical energy. The crazy tunings, the breakneck rhythms and the growling, dancing bass notes work together to weave a unique and inimitable sound.

Joe’s wife Vicki might be Iowa's answer to Maria d'Amato, with strong currents of the likes of Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette—but her Mississippi River vocal twang is rooted solidly in the blues. Her disciplined guitar style provides a spine for Joe's slide and lead work, and the two styles dovetail into a coherent convincing whole. From coast to coast, and from concerts to clubs to outdoor festivals, the Prices’ singular vision and dazzling, irresistible live performances continue to etch a steady upward arc.
