The Lee Boys

The Lee Boys

Lee Boys Alvin Lee, Derrick Lee and Roosevelt Collier joining host Frank Stasio to perform in our studio in advance of tonight’s appearance at the Sacred Steel conference at the Carrboro ArtsCenter.

The Lee Boys play Sacred Steel, so called because of its roots in gospel and the pedal steel guitar that drives the sound. Made up of three brothers and their nephews, the band members all learned to play at the House of God Church in Perrine, Fla., where their father was a pastor. They integrated blues, rock, jazz and funk elements into their sound, creating an energetic and uplifting music, which they have showcased at churches, clubs and festivals across the country.
