Ben Rice & The PDX Hustle

Front Porch Stage

7:00 PM

Ben Rice’s music is deeply rooted in traditional blues, yet at the same time fiercely original. His guitar playing earns labels like “fearless,” “inventive” and “powerful” — and he routinely brings audiences to their feet with his stunning and emotionally honest vocal delivery. Whether leading his electric band or mesmerizing solo with just his voice and acoustic resonator guitar, Ben effortlessly commands the stage.

The PDX Hustle is an expansion of the trio that Rice has been playing with for the last decade. With additional instrumentation and vocalists, the sonic landscape expands, thanks in part to the collaboration with Portland’s esteemed arranger, Dave Mills. The collaboration has yielded a huge sound that is powerful and compelling. The newfound name, instrumentation, and sonic depth have ignited unparalleled excitement and anticipation at every performance.
