Roz Raskin and the Rice CakesThe 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 Phoenix and were honored to perform at the year’s New port Folk Fest. They mix an energized stage show with a unique sound using a variety of instruments including Fender Rhodes, glockenspiel, tape distortion, and guitar. This past March, the Rice Cakes released their 7″ record “Floor Boards/Halloweenie” with indie record label Salvation Recording Co and followed the release with a national tour to SXSW. For the past few years, the band has been touring the US playing venues, festivals, and DIY spots in as many cities and towns as possible. With a full-length album, 2 EP’s, a 10″record, and their new single “Floor Boards” hitting the radio waves, the group is currently recording for their new record at the Columbus Theatre in Providence. 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”.
