Bucket List reviews Bud Rice’s permorfance at the RAC’s concert series


“Local folk hero, Bud Rice, knows how to take command of a stage. From his band’s opening cacophony of noise, to the count in for that first funky as hell intro riff, Rice led his band like a general leads an army. He was fun as hell to watch, and his awkward crowd banter about weather and Christmas helped to make the crowd feel comfortable. Likewise, he’s an honest songwriter, and all of his material felt earnest and organic. While musically diverse, his set, which borrowed heavily from his latest release Belfast, kept of bass of country rock and blues. His backup band are all also particularly skilled, providing the icing on the cake and capping off a wonderful evening with a bang.”
