    2320 1st Ave, Seattle, WA 98121
    Highway 99 Blues Club presents: Triple Threat: Ben Rice, Lisa Mann & Lara Price! Tickets $15 at the door

    This trio of musicians come from different corners of the "big tent" that is the Blues. This show will be the first time these three performers have shared the stage in this unique combination. Let them take you through all the permutations of contemporary and traditional blues, with original songs as well as classic tunes you'll sing along with.
    Ben Rice has been performing on stage since childhood, and has attained a deep mastery of guitar usually displayed by musicians twice his age. In 2014 he caused a stir at the International Blues Challenge, making the finals in the solo/duo category, and taking the St Blues Guitar Award for best guitarist. In 2019 he received three nominations in the Blues Foundation's Blues Music Awards, for Acoustic Artist, Acoustic Album and Best Emerging Artist Album. His study of classical, jazz and mariachi music makes him one of the most exciting and innovative guitarists in blues music. Ben is also recognized as a vocalist, having received multiple nominations for Male Vocalist of the Year in the Cascade Blues Association's Muddy Waters Awards. His original music blends soul, Delta blues, rockabilly, jazz and funk into a "Roots Stew." Influenced heavily by his parents record collection, from Al Green to Alice Cooper, Teddy Pendergrass to Marshall Tucker, and at a young age Ben began investigating blues music and its rich history. He draws inspiration from and carries on the traditions of BB King, Muddy Waters, Missisippi Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy and Skip James, to name but a few.
    Lisa Mann hails from blues-soaked Portland OR where she has been inducted into the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame. In both 2015 and 2016, she won the Blues Music Award for best bassist from the Blues Foundation in Memphis TN, and she has also received the Sean Costello Rising Star Award from Blues Blast Magazine. Originally from West Virginia, her voice effortlessly straddles the line between the honey-sweet warmth of the south and the force-of-nature sound she's cultivated by mastering everything from rock and roll to Memphis soul. Her clever blues balladry is complimented by her considerable prowess on bass guitar, with grooves that touch on the hallowed soil of James Jamerson and Bob Babbitt. She writes the majority of her recorded material, and her songs paint pictures of a gritty (and sometimes humorous) personal experience in life, love and the not-always-pretty music business.
    Lara Price was born in the war torn country of Vietnam in 1975. Abandoned at birth, Lara became a part of the controversial Operation Baby Lift, the mass evacuation of orphans from South Vietnam to the United States. Her journey out of Vietnam to her new home was nothing short of a miracle, as 90 percent of the orphaned babies did not survive. Lara Price is a survivor. Lara brought her sultry-sweet voice to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 to pursue her dream of singing in a band. The journey of Lara’s career includes tours across the United States, China, multiple bands, and five CD’s that Lara Price has produced, co-written, and played multiple instruments. Lara’s journey continues in Austin, Texas where she continues to gather recognition for her unique brand of blues and soul. Her 6th CD, “I Mean Business,” is exactly that! “I Mean Business” has been picked up by Vizztone Label Group and has earned Lara Price a Best Soul Blues Female Artist nomination from the Blues Foundation for 2017.
