The Lee Boys is a family band on a mission to bring sacred steel to the masses.

Growing up as players with the House of God church, the Florida-based sextet developed their high-energy, melting-pot sound from an early age.

Their style is based in a tradition of congregation music that features a prominent steel guitar rather than organ. The Lee Boys' interpretation of sacred steel is based on the spirit of gospel with a foundation in blues, and it incorporates elements of R&B, funk and jazz. With the twang of the lap guitar, the group also adds a country flavor into the mix.

Alvin Lee plays guitar with brothers Keith and Derrick on vocals. A trio of nephews backs them up: Alvin Cordy Jr. on seven-string bass, Earl Walker on drums and Roosevelt Collier on pedal steel guitar. The typically fast-paced rhythm and undulating riffs are representative of the sacred steel sound popularized by acts including Robert Randolph, who was also trained through the House of God church.

In October, the Lee Boys released "Testify," their third studio project, on the Evil Teen label co-owned by Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule. Songs such as the single "Smile" showcase uplifting lyrics and soaring instrumentation that the band has used to catch the attention of musicians including Haynes as well as concertgoers around the country.
