The Lucky Losers CD Release Party
The Southern Soul Survivors
Lara Price is a survivor…
Born in the war torn country of Vietnam in 1975 and abandoned at birth, Lara became a part of the controversial “Operation Baby Lift”, a mass evacuation of orphans from South Vietnam to the United States. As 90 percent of the orphaned babies did not survive, her journey out of Vietnam to her new home was nothing short of a miracle. Indeed, Lara is truly a survivor in every sense.
Price discovered the power of music at the tender age of 6, when she started taking piano lessons in England with legendary 80’s music innovator Howard Jones. At the age of 12 she found her singing voice. Price was influenced and encouraged by her junior high and high school choir teacher, Blake Olmstead. She continued her vocal studies operatically with Dr. Lynn Berg at BSU. She arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 to pursue her dream of singing in a band. By 1998, Price began running her own blues jam at JJ’s Blues in San Jose, and was featured in an inspiring article about blues jams in the September issue of the Blues Revue Magazine. The journey of Lara’s blues band (The Lara Price Band) includes tours across the United States and China. It also includes five CD’s that Price has produced, co-written, and is featured playing drums, guitar, and back up vocals. Lara and her band have shared the bill with R&B legends, Etta James, James Brown, Buddy Guy, Leon Russell and many more.
Like many full time musicians, Lara fronts and leads several musical projects: Lara Unplugged, an acoustic duo; Velvet Plum, a popular top 40’s party band, Militia of Love, a Cali-Reggae band; The Lara Price Band, a rootsy rockin’ blues band and the Lara Price Blues Revue a fantastic 10 piece R&B show band, and Girls Got the Blues. This is an all-star cast of female talent that has come together to make musical magic! As of late Lara’s 6th record, “I Mean Business”. Was picked up by The VizzTone Label Group and was released to the world November, 2015. The release turned the heads of the Blues Foundation. Lara now resides in Austin, Texas and has received a blues music nomination for Soul Blues Female Artist 2017!
She’s an All American singer with a sultry stage presence and a voice that demands your attention- smoky, lonely, sexy, and powerful. It’s no wonder her music transcends the blues and crosses a line into music that is unequivocally superb.

Foley Bros. Custom Works
Jerry Foley has been designing and building Street Rods for over 20 years. He started life as a designer/draftsman/machinist back in the olden days. His love of custom automobiles drew him from the corporate world into the rod shop working for Roy Brizio, where he honed his skills as a Master Fabricator. In 1991, Jerry founded Foley Bros. Custom Works, bringing his street rod expertise home to Redwood City, CA.
Jerry became interested in GroundHawg products in 2000 when he found the product to be an excellent addition to his street rod projects. Foley Bros. acquired GroundHawg Industries in 2001, and has since worked to improve the designs. Today many of his projects utilize GroundHawg independent front suspension, and GroundHawg kits continue to be available to rod builders across the country.
