The Lee Boys w/opener Marvelous Funkshun – Sat., December 22nd

14 Dec

The Lee Boys are one of America’s finest African-American sacred steel ensembles. This family group consists of three brothers, Alvin Lee (guitar), Derrick Lee and Keith Lee (vocals) along with their three nephews, Roosevelt Collier (pedal steel guitar), Alvin Cordy Jr. (7-string bass) and Earl Walker (drums). Each member began making music at the ages of 7 and 8 in the House of God church they attended in Perrine, FL. Here they underwent a rigorous course of training in a variety of musical instruments, including lap and pedal steel guitars. Born and raised in Miami, each of The Lee Boys grew up in the church where their father and grandfather, Rev. Robert E. Lee, was the pastor and a steel player himself.

“Sacred steel” is a type of music described as an inspired, unique form of Gospel music with a hard-driving, blues-based beat. The musical genre is rooted in Gospel, but infused with rhythm and blues, jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop, country and ideas from other nations.

Featuring soaring guitar and pedal steel over a heavy groove, Marvelous Funkshun blends Funk, Southern Rock, Blues, Sacred Steel, Hip Hop and R&B.  The band has toured heavily throughout the southeast since 2014 and they have solidified a unique sound and supportive fan base from North Carolina to Florida.  The live shows are a dynamic, foot-stomping get down and “The Funkshun”, as fans have been known to call them, have shared the stage with many of the top names in the jam scene.
