Lee Boys

Florida, USA


A family affair, the Lee Boys were one of the leading lights in the ‘Sacred Steel’ genre of gospel music. ‘Sacred Steel’ was a style of music that had roots in blues and gospel but was stylized by the introduction of steel guitars in the 1930s by Willie and Troman Easton, who brought the instruments into the fray of services at the House of God church in Jacksonville, Florida. The Lee Boys, made up of brothers Alvin (guitar), Derrick (vocals), and Keith (vocals) Lee, as well as nephews Roosevelt Collier (pedal steel), Alvin Cordy, Jr. (bass), and Earl Walker (drums), first got their start honing their chops at the House of God church in Perrine, Florida. Stanfest was their first Canadian performance, and they are back to help us celebrate 25 years.
