10-MIDNIGHT Blues Legends Joe & Vicki Price Play the blues
The duos last two cd's made the top 100 pick for best blues CD in Real Blues Magazine. They won the Independent Music Award for best blues CD 2009. Joe is a member of the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame and the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Joe was a finalist at the International Blues Challenge. The couple is endorsed by both the National Resophonic Guitar Company, Canada's Eastwood Guitar Companyand Victoria Amplifiers. Joe and Vicki are regular performers at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago and will be opening for him again this January. Joe’s video on the Eastwood Guitar website has over 15.400 hits.

DownBeat Magazine July 2010: Somewhere between traditional & unconventional, this seasoned Iowan singer-guitarist sounds fully involved with controlling the tension in his plain-spoken “ruff and tumble” blues. Neither showy nor too self-effacing, he applies his metal tube to strings in mostly solo performances, adding his talented guitar-playing wife, Vicki, on 3 songs.......Frank-John Hadley

VINTAGE GUITAR Sept. 2009 "Rain or Shine" Iowa may not be known as a blues mecca, but from the opening “Hornet’s Nest,” it’s clear that Waterloo native Joe Price is the real deal. He beats his National Steel with the kind of power associated with Bukka White, Big Joe Williams, or Mississippi Fred McDowell and sings in a style that is as lowdown as it needs to be without sounding at all affected.

But even that impressive introduction doesn’t prepare the listener for the sheer rawness of the aptly titled instrumental “Joe’s Guitar Stomp.” .... his tone is just as raunchy and this solo shuffle (his foot-pounding the guitar’s only accompaniment) rocks just as hard and like everything on the album, it has a seat-of-your-pants, first-take feel.
