Product Description

The Lee Boys are one of America's fmest 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 taking music instruction and making music 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, Elder Robert . Lee, was the pastor and a steel player himself. Deacon Alvin Lee, The Lee Boys' leader, is an ordained minister of music. Keith Lee served as choir director and praise and worship leader in the church.

In 2005, Alvin Lee was called to bring this special sacred music out of the church. In an attempt to bring the Word to a mass audience, the band started performing at numerous secular events, continuing to perform in church, at sacred steel "conventions'' as well as in more mainstream Gospel showcases. When The Lee Boys bring their joyous spiritual sound to the stage, audiences instantly recognize that this is not "sitting and listening" music: dancing, shouting out, and having fun are considered essential parts of their tradition. Founder and bandleader Alvin Lee explains "The inspiration and feeling that comes along with our music is the reason that people feel good. It is like the new music on the block and it's just getting ready to explode!" In the last five years, they performed for more than 750,000 music fans at festivals throughout the United States and Canada, even performing at festivals in Europe and Asia In the process, their unique sound has attracted musical artists such as The Blind Boys of Alabama, Mavis Staples, Take 6, The Harlem Boys Choir, The Soul Stirrers, B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Robert Plant-all of whom have performed with the Lee Boys and/or invited them to tour with them.

At the secular festivals where they perform, Deacon Alvin Lee and the Lee Boys normally lead a Sunday service, Deacon Lee says, "I was called to take this music and His Word outside the four walls. When The Lee Boys have Sunday service at a big rock festival, it makes my heart warm to know kids who might not ever have gone to church in their lives are hearing The Word."
