Details

What: Johnny and Dee Price and the Rhythm Riders

When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 9

Where: Woodland Opera House, 340 Second St., Woodland

Tickets: $20; http://www.woodlandoperahouse.org or (530) 666-9617

The Woodland Opera House will present the powerful country sound of Johnny and Dee Price and the Rhythm Riders in their tribute to Johnny Cash, June Carter, Patsy Cline and country gospel at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 9. The Opera House is at 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland.

The Rhythm Riders featuring Johnny Price is dedicated to preserving the original Cash sound. Price’s uncanny vocal and physical resemblance to Cash has marveled audiences from California to New York to Ireland. Price captures 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, a news release said.

Price’s versatility also allows him to give convincing performances when singing the classic country favorites of George Jones, Ray Price and Faron Young.

Rhythm Riders vocalist Dee Price has sung the music of Patsy Cline, June Carter and other giants of the country music world for more than 15 years. For five years, she was accompanied by guitarist Gil Reigers of the Johnny Mathis band. She also has performed with Norm Hamlet and Biff Adams of Merle Haggard’s band and Truett Cunningham of Bob Wells Texas Playboys.

Together, Johnny and Dee Price have researched the archives of American roots music and assembled a band capable of recreating the sights and sounds of the heyday of country-western and Americana roots music.

The Rhythm Riders Band features Brett Boyle on bass and vocals, David Johnston on guitars and vocals, E.G. Smith on drums and vocals, and Larry Tracy on pedal steel and guitars.

Reserved seats are $20 each, available at http://www.woodlandoperahouse.org and at the box office at 340 Second St., (530) 666-9617. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
