The Yardbirds were performing at Seattle's Triple Door in the main room while we were in the Musiquarium upstairs. (Great place! You all should go there for a show). They came up to watch us when they were done and came to say hello when we were done. They had great things to say and I gave them a CD and a business card. 2 weeks later I got this email. Pretty cool I think!
Very creative works there and I loved the extended version of Devil’s Nursery. My other favorites were 7th Shot of Whisky and Whiskey Stop.
Oh and your take on Long Black Veil; amazing!
Excellent! Best of all there is to you!

Come On In!
Welcome. Dirty Rice is an aggressive Rock-n-Blues band from the Seattle area serving a delicious blend of the greatest songs and styles that has been spawned by the blues including the affects on the songwritng and the ripping guitar of Eric Rice. His vision has been brought into focus with the bond he has with Scotty Harris and Andrew Cloutier. Raw old school Rock-n-Blues with a lot of variety. With Eric Rice at the helm of Dirty Rice you will hear anything from Muddy Waters and T-Bone Walker to Hendrix and their own homegrown tunes.
"This band is fab, fun and I've always felt welcome and part of the family when I've come to hear them. They're so warm, friendly and funny.Dirty Rice is very talented and they play as if music is part of their clothes."

"Eric plays with a spirit in his voice and fingers I enjoy every time I hear him."
Dino Duran. Owner of 88 Keys in Seattle's Pioneer Square
"The first artillary volley's from the guitar of Eric Rice got an unconditional surrender from the whole audience."
Eric Rice sings "You Really Got a Hold On Me" better than anyone since Smokey Robinson in my opinion and it is always a hauntingly powerful one when he does it."
Bob Horn. Staff writer for the Washington Blues Society
