The Lee Boys
In the late 1930’s two brothers brought a new musical instrument into the worship experience of the House of God church in Jacksonville, FL. The Pentecostal congregation embraced the soulful sound of the electric lap steel guitar, and over time, this unique sound became the hallmark of the church. The pedal steel guitar was later added into the mix in the 1970’s. The Lee Boys are part of the fourth generation of this in the faith and one of Florida’s finest African-American Sacred Steel Artists. All six members are either brothers or nephews and each began making music in the church when they were just 7 and 8 years old- they have not stopped playing since. Exhilarating, Energetic, Exciting, Freeing Fun, Inspiring, Spirited, Soulful, Thrilling- These are only some of the words fans have used in trying to describe how The Lee Boys make them feel. You can hear it all in their music as they come alive on the stage when they perform. It is the music of praised, faith and hope but with a whole lot more funk and enjoyment than has ever echoed through any church. It is music with the exciting sacred steel dimension that uplifts you and makes you feel good like nothing else can!
