BRU Summer Concert Series Concludes With The Rice Cakes


The Rice Cakes are equal parts keyboardist and vocalist Roz Raskin, bassist Justin Foster, and drummer Casey Belisle. The eclectic trio recently won 95.5 WBRU’s 2012 Rock Hunt and was named Best Local Act of 2010 by the Providence Phoneix. They mix an energized stage show with a unique sound using a variety of instruments including Fender Rhodes, glockenspiel, tape distortion, and guitar. On August 26, the Rice Cakes released their new album “Monster Man” that was recorded, mixed, mastered, and packaged by the band. For the past few years, the band has been touring the US playing venues, festivals, and DIY spots as many cities and towns as possible. Following the new release, the Rice Cakes are emarking on a US tour throughout fall 2011 into 2012. With a full-length album and 2 EP under their belt, the group continues to tour and heat up airways with their new single “Magma”. Isaac Paris of Performer Magazine summed up the band in saying, “The Rice Cakes deliver a captivating combination of powerful drums, a soulful voice, and great songs”. Check it out for yourself!
