The History of The Lee Boys���
The Lee Boys are one of America's finest African American sacred steel ensembles. The Lee Boys grew up in the church where their father was a 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. When The Lee Boys bring their joyous spiritual sound:･ﾟ✧:･.☽˚｡･ﾟ✧: 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!"����
