Influences: The Dillards
The Rice Kryspies were a 1960s folk-bluegrass group featuring the three Rice brothers (Wayne, Jim, and Joe), along with Wayne’s wife Marci on bass and Pat Stevens on drums. Influenced by the Dillards, they issued at least one single in the mid-sixties and were together for about four years, playing mostly camps, coffee houses, and churches around Southern California.
When bassist Marci left the band in 1971, they changed their name to Brush Arbor and became a Christian, country bluegrass band.
