Billy Price has been entertaining audiences since performing in Pittsburgh, Pa. with the Rhythm Kings in the early 1970s.

Price's popularity and longevity in his adopted hometown and elsewhere aren't hard to explain. As Geoffrey Himes of the Washington Post has written, "Unlike so many blues revivalists, Price is not an imitation of better singers--he's the real thing." Price formed The Billy Price Band in 1990. Members of the Billy Price Band are Steve Delach (guitar), Tom Valentine (bass), Dave Dodd (drums), Jimmy Britton (keyboards), and Eric DeFade (tenor sax).

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 14 albums, CDs, and DVDs. His latest, This Time for Real, with Chicago soul singer Otis Clay, was released in May, 2015 by Bonedog Records/Vizztone Label Group.
