About Tom Boyle

Tom Boyle

Tom Boyle, aka T-Boy, hit the Seattle blues scene in 1982 with ‘The Slackmasters', which featured a twin-blues guitar attack (along with the incomparable Tim Sherman).

Tom's ‘less is more' guitar style, steeped in the Chicago and Texas electric blues guitar traditions, was heard all throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s as part of the thriving Pioneer Square blues scene with several great blues bands, including ‘Drivin' Wheel', ‘Nitelife ‘and ‘The Led Jaxson Band.

In 2012, Tom relocated to Tacoma, where he joined one of his current bands, ‘T-Town Aces'. He's also a current member of ‘The Soulful 88's' and a part-time guitarist with ‘Farrell Hudson & Friends'.

T-Boy has been honored with multiple awards by the Washington Blues Society, The Cascade Blues Association, and King 5's Best of Western Washington (as ‘Best Band' with The Big Rockin' Daddies).



About Eric Rice

Eric Rice

Eric Rice has been performing blues professionally for over 20 years. Currently he is the guitarist for the amazing Stacey Jones Band as well as the leader of Eric's Maine Connection, along with Andrew Cloutier and Scotty Harris.

Initially Eric came up in the Spokane Blues scene of the 1990's, along with his friends Too Slim and the Taildraggers, DK Stewart, Yo and DeCats and of course his own JR Boogie, a 7 piece horn section along with his fantastic guitar stylings.

Eric eventually moved to Seattle looking for a bigger pond to swim in. He continued with the name JR Boogie and forged his way into the blues scene in Seattle where he is today. "I love Seattle. The weather is cool and the music scene thrives!" he says.

Eric has opened for many national blues acts such as Edgar Winter, Robin Ford, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Jr. Wells, Long John Baldry, Anson Funderberg to name a few.
