Johnny Price's uncanny vocal and physical resemblance to Johnny Cash, has marveled audiences from California to New York to Ireland. Johnny captures Johnny Cash's ability to deliver a story and a melody so well, that his audiences feel as though they have had a walk with the Man In Black himself. Johnny's versatility also allows him to give convincing performances when singing the classic country favorites of George Jones, Ray Price and Faron Young. In 2005 Johnny entered the International Vocalist competition hosted in Las Vegas Nevada. Out of 5000 contestants performing in all genres, Johnny displayed his western roots and vocal ability placing 18th, proving this country boy can sing.
Dee Price has sung and performed the music of Patsy Cline, June Carter and other giants of the country music world. For more than 15 years, Dee has regaled audiences with her solid vocals and easy demeanor. For 5 years Dee was accompanied by guitarist, Gil Reigers of the Johnny Mathis band. She has also performed with Norm Hamlet and Biff Adams of Merle Haggard's band and Truett Cunningham of Bob Wells Texas Playboys. Not to be outdone, Johnny's wife, Dee, also entered the International Vocalist competition, earning a 9th place finish in a field of 5000 contestants and 258 finalists. Together, they have researched the archives of American Roots music and assembled a band capable of recreating the sights and sounds of the hey day of Country Western and Americana Roots music. June Carter, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline, three singers who embraced their culture and blended Western, Swing, Rock, Polka and Mexican Dance music and brought a new sound to the world, influencing generations of musicians, and fans.
***** The show was great. Both voices were spot on and John talked to crowd like family. I could not have been more happy with the performance. PM
***** The Rhythm Riders featuring Johnny and Dee Price brings the house down with their music. The sound of this group is definitely a crowd pleaser and a big time draw. This is by far the best group in the country. MS
