Pete Price has been the lead guitarist in The Fries Band; for the past 30 years. Born in Ferguson, Missouri and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Price grew up under the influence of thoughtful introspective artists such as Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel, and James Taylor. The Beatles and the British Invasion also influenced Price’s formative years. As a teen he began writing and performing his own songs, first at church and local Dayton bars and later at open stages and clubs in Denver, CO. He returned to Dayton in the late ‘80’s and started performing at Canal St. Tavern, W.O. Wrights,  eventually joining The Fries Band in early 1992.  

The Fries Band is a popular Dayton group that has opened for numerous national acts including The Guess Who, Gladys Knight and The Pips, Martina McBride, Steve Morse (Dixie Dregs), Mick Fleetwood and the Zoo, Kansas, and many more national acts since their founding over 30 years ago. Pete embarked on a solo career in 2022, releasing his first album, Department of the Interior as a side project. In 2024, Price released his second album; Pictures In Time. He also performs in The Fairview Stringers, an acoustic duo and on very rare occasions with The Price Brothers, playing his original music.
